Chris Gill is the man behind Northside Records in Melbourne (really!?). The store has been going strong for ten years now and is THE spot to hit whenever you are in that fine city.

You can also catch Chris DJing around Melbourne and on his radio show 'The Get Down' on Melbourne's 3RRR Radio Thursdays 2-4pm NZT

Northside is also now a record label releasing soul and funk vinyl so check for that - a good one to start with would be the recent 'Soul Of Melbourne' LP. And if you're ever in Melbourne, tell Chris we sent ya...
