Praxis Shop/Storage open Thursday afternoons during May 2023 and beyond.

Updated 27-05-2023

NEW: In addition to the possibility to pick up your online orders by appointment, our shop/storage location was open to the public on Thursdays throughout May 2023 from 4-7pm, when you were welcome to stop by without an appointment. This was taking place May 11 / 18 [the 18th was a public holiday]/ 25 and was a bit of a test whether we’ll make it a regular feature.

Please make sure you have an account in our online shop – we also recommend to place an order ahead of time, so they can be prepared for pick up, but space & time allowing, you’ll be able to browse and listen to records as well (the location is very small!)

Update: Even though this was only a small test which we didn’t even promote on social media, to be honest simply because the shop space isn’t quite ready yet, the decision was taken to definitely continue the experiment later in June, and plan to continue throughout the warmer months. The next open days will be: June 22 and 29, July dates will be announced soon. We’re grateful for feedback. One of the questions: Is Thursday a good day of the week for this?

See you there!

Video about the relaunch of Skin & Speech Records on YouTube

Skin and Speech Records was originally founded in the mid-80s by Alex Buess as an outlet for some self produced cassette tapes, amongst them the first Melx recorded live at the legendary Alte Stadtgärtnerei occupied social center in Basel in 1987.

After recording and producing numerous releases on Vision in the late 80s and early 90s and countless projects beyond that since then, he is re-launching the Skin and Speech label now. Following the first vinyl edition of the 1994 16-17 album Gyatso in collaboration with Praxis in 2021, a number of new releases are in the pipeline. Find more about those in the video, which also provides some background and history, produced by Big Rogers.
