Welcome to Capsule Records

At Capsule Records, we strongly believe in the power of music and community. As an independent record shop, we started with the local area in mind. Since then, we have been on a mission to foster a musical community and make the joy of music accessible to all. 

Our stock is a carefully curated selection of LPs that we love. From soul, jazz, disco, electronica, and hip-hop to some bits in between, there’s something for everyone. For those who like to dig deeper, we also have crates like African Funk, Japanese Jazz and Modern Classical.

To help you discover something new or find an old favourite, we’ve stuck QR codes on the front of all our LPs that direct you to a listening link with information about the artist and label. If you’re without a phone, just ask, and we can play it for you on our tailor-made PMC sound system. So, take a seat in our beautifully designed coffee area, enjoy a drink of your choice (we also stock alcohol!) and relax.  

Our atmosphere in store is also aided by our weekly DJ sets, as part of our Capsule Connect initiative designed to support the local DJ community. We hope that by using our platform to promote local DJs and the venues that host them, we can bring the best of what Brighton has to offer to you. 

“Capsule Records are a breath of fresh air. Hugely knowledgeable, with a terrific collection of proper music, they go to great length to curate just what is right. My go to place!” - Dunstan Rickard
