KillaCutz Records is a record store that specializes in NY House, NJ House, Chicago House, Detroit Techno, Tech House, Techno and Acid. With over 15.000 secondhand records to choose from, it’s easy to spend your whole afternoon snooping around. Jens: “It’s my favourite record store in Amsterdam. Because the owners are two true vinyl freaks they know the records they sell by heart. Which often results in passionate conversations about music.”
You won’t only find vinyl at KillaCutz. As the shop doubles as a bike rental shop, you’ll have to dig in between the bicycles they rent out. “Back in the days, the shop first opened to sell mainly records. When vinyl became less popular, the owners had to think of another way to earn their income and started a bike shop. They started selling records again about a year ago.” Luckily, KillaCutz isn’t only for those with a lot of cash to spend. As you can find records for as low as €3.
Besides being Danish, Jens is a DJ and Canvas’ programmer. This means he’s looking out, day and night, for talented artists and acts that will make you want to not-stop dancing. Every now and again you’ll find Jens playing records himself at Canvas.
Not many people know that Jens went to boarding school in Denmark. After that he couldn’t wait to get back to Holland, because he missed the Dutch hospitality. Jens is a happy camper, when he sees everyone having a good time on the dance floor. Well, that puts him in the right line of business.
