Mega week, and I was in Kent for most of it heh heh. The biggest event was Scott and I went to purchase a really great collection last night in South London. We had been communicating with them for quite some time and several other shops had already been to have a look but we knew it was a killer collection so we really wanted to do our best to buy it. We spent hours, and hours going through piles of 90s Wall of Fame Rap, UK Hip Hop, 70’s Reggae, UK Soundsystem Dub, Steppers, Dubstep, Dancehall, Breaks and loads more wicked genres. It was mostly split into two piles – Rap and Dub. The Rap titles were all pretty well played but all of the classics were there: Mos Def, Mobb Deep, Nas, GZA, Wu Tang Clan, Diamond D, Lord Finesse, Souls Of Mischief. The Dub titles ranged from original Jamaican Dub from Prince Jammy and Scientist to heavy UK artists like Jah Warrior, Iration Steppers, Aba Shanti, Creation Steppers, Dixie Peach, Pupa Jim, Disciples, Mad Professor etc. It is a really amazing collection, and certainly one of the best collections we have had for sometime.

We had another shipment of Japanese titles come in from when Toru was in Japan. This included loads of really beautiful Anime Soundtrack LPs, Japanese Pop, Synth Pop and Folk Music. Like I always say, these titles are absolutely flying out.

More on the Reggae Tip; we have started to take more Dancehall titles. We now have a large box of decent Dancehall 45s. Loads of Jammys. We also have a super rare Dub LP on the wall at the moment, an original copy of Fatman Ridim Sections’ “Israel Tafari”.

Sean was out at a really good Classic Rock collection this week; it wasn’t the biggest or in the best condition – but there are loads of UK original titles out at a very good price. Some real classic LPs from artists like Small Faces, Love, Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, Hawkwind, Francois Hardy etc. We test played most of these and they played really well – no jumps, pops and hardly any surface noise. It may be worth noting that all of our records (apart from the bargain ones!!) are guaranteed not to jump!

On the dance side we had some really wicked titles come in this week. Two large collections of UK Garage and Old Skool Hardcore. Loads of really classic titles, plenty of obscure white labels chucked in. We were listening to a load of the Hardcore titles yesterday – DJ Clarkee, Devious D, Tango. Absolutely banging; music to tear the place up.

As per usual we also had tonnes of brand new titles come in this week. This week seemed to bring in lots of  Experimental, most of the Principe titles (all killer, and beautiful handmade sleeves), Indie Rock and a load of Latin reissues.

Plenty more collections coming up this week. I’m going to a great one in Peckham this Friday which is full of Dubstep, Hardcore Punk, Experimental, Reggae, Techno, House, Metal, SSW and Indie!!! I saw some pictures and can’t wait to have a look!

We have buyers available everyday in every genre so if you have a record or CD collection for sale don’t hesitate to get in touch!!!
