The CyberNoise Record Store Day 2018 Electronic Music Releases Of Note

by Graham Needham (© 7th March 2018)

Record Store Day is a special day celebrating physical record/music shops. Various labels and artists produce special/limited edition releases just for that day, some in very limited quantities. 2018 is looking like another great year for electronic music related releases and there are some quite significant, different USA/European releases this year - with the UK/Europe coming out tops for electronic related releases. For those unable to get to a bricks and mortar store on the 21st we also provide iTunes download links for the music, if it's available digitally. Now that the official releases lists have been published, here is our guide to this year's interesting electronic related releases - this article will be updated as more information becomes available so please do check back:
