Packing a Punch

Amsterdam’s tiniest record store is a treasure trove of left-field gems.

The only red-lit window in the area to showcase a sweaty DJ marks the spot—ring the bell at the adjoining gate for access to one of Amsterdam’s tiniest treasure troves—Redlight Records. There might be some techno bangers to be found within those crates, but this is a disco and world music lover’s dream, complete with all the spotless reissues and rare presses you’ll ever need. Consider it consolation for the strange looks you’ll get when you walk back out onto the street.
