We are open 7 days a week from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. on Inverness Street in the heart of London's world-famous Camden Town. From the home of Irish and West Indian immigrants at the start of the 20th century to the hotbed of Britpop and Rock & Roll culture by the end, Camden is where we call home.

Reggae, Ska, Rocksteady & Jamaican
For years, sound system operators from all across London and the UK have made a bee line for Out on the Floor to grab the hottest new sounds and the toughest revival reggae tunes. On the weekend of Notting Hill Carnival the shop is traditionally completely packed with selectors and DJ's, with clientele now coming from far across the world (Japan and Italy particularly!) to check our unparalleled collection of Reggae 7”, 12” and LPs.
We also have our own Reggae label, Tuff Scout, now one of the best UK reggae labels for both homegrown talent and major artists from Jamaica (Lee “Scratch” Perry, Michael Prophet, Big Youth and many more).

Also for re-issues of classic records like Abbey Road, Dark Side of the Moon, Kind of Blue and Led Zeppelin IV and re-releases of mythical Soul and World music that, until recent years, were almost impossible to find.
Part of the joy of record shopping is that you never know what you'll find. If you like a good dig then you'll absolutely love diving into our Sale section. The only rules are that no record can exceed £6 . We often throw in some well-known and adored LPs just for fun, and it's not unusual to find a cheap copy of Sgt. Pepper or that rare Pete Rock 12” (usually the sleeves are just a little tatty and the record plays great). Music is for everyone, and at Out on the Floor we think it should be
