TopsyVonSalkeld's Shop Announcement

Aficionado was created in June 1998 in Manchester, England as the antidote to the extremities of Superclubbing which was prevalent at the time.

After years of digging, listening and loving music of all forms, Moonboots and Jason gambled to create a Sunday scene in Manchester. Laughed at by many, Sundays became the new Saturday pretty soon after.

Playing anything good outside of the four-four mainstream they set about creating a cerebral soundtrack for minds and feet with a Balearic edge.
Referencing the multi tempo playlist of Ku , Shoom and the Café del Mar, disco was added to the mix alongside electronic and folky oddities.

As Aficionado has developed the playlist has become all encompassing. New old things have been found, new, new things have been found, old things have been rediscovered and given a new lease of life.

All these years on, the search for the perfect 'Nado' beat continues.
