How long it has been since you are a record collector?4 years. That’s not a very long time. But whenever I do feel the urge to buy a record, I give in readily. And then there are generous friends who gift records to me. How Large is your vinyl collection?120 records as I type. From Jazz to Disco to Rock to Hip-Hop to French House to Big Beat to Plunderphonics to Glitch Hop. I have all that I enjoy listening to, and I will only keep adding more to the collection. Nothing’s ever leaving it anymore! Which is the most valuable record in your collection?I don’t have it yet. It’s a definitive Big Beat album called Elephant Sound, by Indian Ropeman. There are couple of copies available on Discogs, but that’s not where I shop.

Start with one question - What am Iin it for?If the answer is music, start with record listening sessions. Make friends there. Get them to reveal their record collection to you. Get the hang of a turntable. Listen to records all the time. On borrowed time. Buying comes later. You will know when. But if you can't control that itch, the good guys at The Revolver Club will help you out. ·
If it's for making music, be picky. Invest enough time in figuring out which turntable to buy. And once you have the TT, go for the most obscure records. Be prepared to sweat a lot, because crate digging is a time and labour intensive activity. And just one store in one city is never enough.
