Had to add to the collection on site. Classic shoe, classic color and classic material. These scream classic hip hop imo.

Collapsable Record Crate

Once again leave it up to Japan to come with the freshness. Nothing similar or coming close to it available stateside and they're stackable too.

Master Sounds

 photo 03f0165b-9c5b-4844-8c25-ad9840bfda80_zps64172194.jpg  photo 48e04314-6e81-4c85-b3a3-102738fc6783_zpse59a9941.jpg I picked up a pair of vinyl stabilizers from Master Sounds in the UK. These are by far the best ones i've ever used or seen. Good luck on finding a set as they've already sold out and were limited to 100 world wide which = 50 if strictly working dj's acquired 'em...  photo b306c05e-960b-4859-9dfc-549f41d2def0_zps468eef5e.jpg  photo 2a186129-3fc9-4006-a8aa-82537d59e49d_zps3d09d45d.jpg  photo 046b4d43-fe6e-4f79-b620-ad98df6237c8_zpsc38b9429.jpg So necessary.

Demo spotted on Ebay

 photo 472d315c-d60b-49ef-bdc8-93c86683c5f6_zps64178311.jpg A demo tape of one of my early productions from '88 was spotted on Ebay today ending at $260.00. After a search of all the other demo tapes sold in the same auction from the same seller I noticed mine sold for about $250.00 more than all the other tapes listed for sale. I'm going to take that as a compliment...  photo 53e2a47b-edc6-41ff-b34a-c310479b1e87_zps3e06a4c3.jpg

I couldn't tell you how many times over the years i've been shopping in record shops to hear all these exact things said by people that come in. Pretty irritating to say the least...

Ikea DJ Promo

while most dj's I know own expedit ikea shelves I figured at some point ikea would/should come out with shelves specifically for records. They'd make a killing. Here is a recent promo they did on a room makeover for a uk dj. Pretty slick!

Godfather of Disco

Pop some popcorn pour an ice cold beverage and sit back for the next hour and a half if you want the scoop on West End records and the New York city disco scene. Mandatory viewing if you ask me!

Roosevelt Years

The Roosevelt Years by Gasface I was fortunate enough to attend some of these legendary record conventions. I definitely cleaned up and scored lots of titles. Records heads already had or were sleeping on. I didn't know many people there and they definitely didn't know me but it was a who's who of hip hop up in that piece. Check the video to see Chairman Mao's rundown...
