A bank and a record store. All loans secured on your record collection.

       [marked-for-deletion] baked in form of pawnshops for 'loans', record buy/sell/trade stores... - other than that, business plan has no legs.

       I disagree... a run of the mill pawn shop wouldn't be able to tell the value of a record, especially rare out of print 12 inch records. This would serve as an incredible resource and community center. This would be a central financing hub for DJs, producers, club owners, ravers and EDM fans. Popular dj's could issue shares of stock, as one dj's popularity rises the value of the outstanding common shares would increase, redeemable in records or kit from the central bank. Your record collection would be browseable by anyone, record valuations would rise and fall as demand changes, and as a result of your records becoming more valuable, you would then have more purchasing power and dj influence. I think this idea has incredible potential, a bank for DJ's where the currency is records.
