After visiting San Francisco on their honeymoon and falling in love with the city, DJs Jody and Michael McFadin went back to Southern California, sold most of their possessions, and moved to San Francisco with a fuzzy dream of starting a record company. While continuing to dream about starting a label, they invested the last of their savings into a business that would combine their passion for music and provide an income to live on, and opened the Groove Merchant record store on Haight Street in 1990.

Within a year the small shop had built a reputation the world over as a place to find rare records and learn about new sounds. A haven for collectors, DJs, and producers looking for funk, soul & jazz, and break beats, the Groove Merchant even earned a toast on the Beastie Boys song “Professor Booty”, “This one goes out to my man the Groove Merchant, comin' through with the beats that I've been searchin',” rapped Mike D. on 1992's “Check Your Head” album.
