Best Electronic Music Store With a Really High Volume of Patrons Wearing Phat Pants and Baseball Caps and Wielding Glo-Sticks (2008)

Satellite Records

While other dance-music stores aim for a more specific clientele, SATELLITE RECORDS is the great equalizer. Which can only mean a high proportion of raver-uniformed 16-year-old bedroom DJs with no money who look like they never went to bed. Even after the store moved to its new, glamorously large location, it still looks like a frat house that needs massive cleaning; you've gotta wonder how the shop stays in business, since the DJ wannabes spend more time than money there—the only thing they actually take home is one of those poster-sized flyers.
