Specialist record shops can often be intimidating places, so it's refreshing - in fact, it's absolutely brilliant - to wander into Rubadub and be catered to by some of the friendliest staff around. That's not to say that they don't know their stuff, because they do; there's an excellent range of CDs and vinyl, they're particularly good for Detroit techno and electro, reggae and crunk, and they've also got a great range of DJ equipment, much of it set up for you to try out. But the shop was founded on a policy of genuinely caring about the customers, it shows, and it makes all the difference.
