I bought a collection of 400 old Detroit techno and Chicago house records. It was a good day.
This vinyl had apparently been languishing for a while. Six crates of goodness just taking up space in the back office of a local record store. Following a hot tip from my main man DJ James Reid, I asked them if I could get into the secret room and take a look. Right away I knew it was a treasure. DJ Rolando… Basic Channel… Wow!
I told them I’d like to work out a deal for a bunch of records. They said, which ones? I said “All of them.”
They named a price and I got excited. I’m not going to tell you how much I got the lot for or you’ll hate me. I ran to the bank machine before they could change their minds. When I returned, the older clerk said, “Oh look, the crazy guy is back.” Call me crazy all you want! I’ve got science on my side!
There are some serious classics in here. Lots of Trax Records, Underground Resistance, Planet E, Axis, Tresor, Plus 8… I’ve just started the pleasurable task of going through and organizing all these records. It’s been a non-stop dance party in the parlour of the old house in the woods.
I asked the owner where this collection came from. I can think of only maybe four people besides me in Halifax who would’ve been into this stuff in the late 90s or so.
The owner said “They were dropped off by Some Fuckin’ Guy.”
So DJ Some Fuckin Guy, wherever you are, your babies have found a good home.
