Djungel & Jazz
Djungel & Jazz began at the end of a long journey. Florida to LA in a Chevy Caprice on a pilgrimage to understand the notion of true American music. Every stop along the way had a story to tell, but it wasn’t until we bumped into Mr. Peterman we understood the importance of vibe. His house in the hills had three notes of vibe — jazz, jungle, and everything in between. The vibe is you between these notes he used to say.
A jungle can be anywhere, a place in the distance, or a hidden snug in your home. Our jungle is a mood estate of greens and sounds with a jazzy vibe - a carefully selected collection of records, plants, and everything in between called life. Djungel & Jazz began at the end of a long journey. A curated mood bonanza at Hökens Gata 10.
Determined to offer the best retail experience, we opened our vinyl record store in January 2022, after some time searching for the perfect venue. We had decided early on that we wanted to open up near Mosebacke, in our opinion Stockholm's best neighborhood for record stores. We are still here today, in good company with stores such as Snickars Records and Record Mania, to name a few industry colleagues.
The store's first year was spent on completely renovating the premises and subsequently opening up most of the store to our customers. Our early regulars have been part of the journey and seen how we slowly grew into the record store we are today. The idea of offering the best shopping experience permeates everything we do and everything we want to achieve. In addition to being selective with which vinyl records and plants we display for sale, we also want to offer that little extra that we feel is missing in other stores. Djungel & Jazz's journey has just begun, our physical store has made an impression and we are now taking the next step on our journey, we are launching a new webshop and with the help of modern technology we want to create a completely unique store experience for all vinyl lovers.
