I found an article in the ‘Chester Chronicle’ dated 9th August 1991: “THE house music scene looks set to make its mark on Chester in a big way with this week’s opening of a new record shop. Global Grooves at 65 Brook Street is the brainchild of Ian Wade 21 and Adam Johnson 20. They have financed the shop, which specialises in house records, with bank capital and a £5,000 loan from the Prince’s Trust. The pair are keen house DJs and also have business experience from an HND course at Liverpool Polytechnic. They are enthusiastic to help up and coming DJs and bands. Adam of Queen’s Road said: ‘Our opening day on Monday was really good. One DJ came in and spent £60. It seemed a shame there was nothing like this. There is an awful lot of potential. Any record a customer wants to listen to will be played but nobody should feel they have to make a purchase when they come in. We want Global Grooves to be a fun and friendly meeting place.’ Ian and Adam have devised the idea of putting their own description on each record sleeve so strangers to house music can find their way around. And they feel their age and music interest will enable the shop to keep in touch with the latest trends.”
