OTIS began as a record store based in Chippendale, (Sydney) specialising in hand sourced pre-loved records from Japan as well as a selection of new releases from our favourite labels.

After a successful but at times turbulent 12 months navigating the pressures of an inflated rental market and increasing bureaucratic pressure from the city’s council, We decided to go online and expand our focus to record store and label.

Through our ongoing Sweet Echoes parties, OTIS has managed to establish a reputation locally for our commitment to supporting Sydney’s often overlooked but no less rich, underground club and experimental music scene. The decision to refocus and consolidate our efforts into nurturing this pool of rousing talent through the platform of a record label seemed only natural.
