Today we’d like to introduce you to Mikey Ramirez.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Mikey. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Born in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1980. Mom and Dad got me into music; mainly my mother. We used to always go to the Record Bar together. She had a club and I would make mixtapes on my Soundesign all-in-one stereo system for the P.A. during business hours. First record bought, which I still have, was from Genesis – A Trick Of The Tail. Ended up in Florida during the mid-80’s; did time at Barnes & Noble, later CD Collector which we morphed into Radio-Active Records and now we’re here at Technique!
Has it been a smooth road?
In the past 15 years, plenty. In no particular order but there was plenty of blood, tears, sweat, drugs, arrests, mistakes, regrets, surgeries, hospital bills, debts, back pain and more along the way. All struggles and obstacles build character. You learn from your mistakes and always take risks as long as no one gets hurt.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
Technique Records is an independently owned record store, specializing in new and used records, tapes, movies, and memorabilia. We are known for a well-curated selection, geared more towards out of print merchandise and imported vinyl.
Having a strong crew who you can listen to determines the success of a business. I’m proud to have the employees that are the frame of Technique Records.
Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Every city has their own obstacles that you’ll eventually overcome. The key is patience and willpower.
