Freakbeat Records is like a neighborhood record store from the days when shopping for music was fun and adventurous. We may not have everything you want, but we always have something you need.
Half the store is filled with new and used vinyl from all musical genres. Hundreds of collectible records line the walls and ceiling beams inside Freakbeat. The rock section is largest, but we're very aggressive about filling the jazz and soul bins too. We have a special section of Disco, Soul, Hip-Hip and Funk 12" singles, along with plenty of KROQ Flashback Favorites. Our 7" singles include lots of soul and rock titles, most under $10.
Keep browsing through country, blues, folk, reggae, soundtracks, classical, and more. At Freakbeat you can listen to any used record or CD that is already open.
Our selection of compact discs highlights new releases and reissues that the big box stores generally ignore. We try to stock music that you might be looking for, rather than just what the record companies are trying to sell you. Freakbeat has lots of imports and small label reissues of the psychedelic, punk, jazz, and progressive past. We can special order anything for you that is still in print and get it to you quickly.
Freakbeat offers the discerning music lover an unusual and interesting variety of music DVDs. For movie fans, we have a selection of used films on DVD and Blu-Ray. We have books, magazines, vintage posters, and other unusual odds and ends waiting to be discovered.
Our 99 cent room is a mecca for bargain buyers from throughout Southern California - thousands of LPs and CDs priced at just 99 cents each, restocked every day. If you're interested in buying in bulk, we can wheel and deal all day long!
Freakbeat Records is easy to get to, comfortable to shop in, and within walking distance of many fine restaurants, coffee shops, and cafes.
Although we do not sell or repair any electronics (turntables, styli, etc.), we highly recommend Audio Specialist, located six blocks east of us on Ventura Blvd, to take care of all your equipment needs.
