Profile

Born in 1990. Raised on alternative rock and jazz, then broadened into record collecting as a student of hip-hop culture, sampling, and drum breaks. My natural obsession with music and discographies since a young age has taken me down an endless amount of genre tangents, most of which have stayed in my preferences since… including but not limited to HIP-HOP, JAZZ, SOUL, FUNK, BOOGIE, REGGAE, PSYCH, BRAZILIAN, AFRICAN, PUNK, METAL, BLUES, and countless subgenres of ELECTRONIC MUSIC...

I also work in the dance music industry and you can find me traveling to catch DJ sets and festivals around the world whenever I can, usually of the minimal/tech/deep house variety. I occasionally spin and make mixes under the name Subrhythmic – check out my mixes here: Soundcloud

I joined Discogs at age 15 and was part of the original Discogs moderator team from 2007-2008 until submissions became a free-for-all. Nowadays I pretty much only vote on edits to my collection. Proud to have been in the top 75 contributors at one point, and still in the top 300!

I run a YouTube channel to share and discuss records with whoever is interested: youtube.com/skyl4r

In 2013, I was chosen to be featured in the official Discogs Community Profiles video series!
Official Edit // Longer Edit (With Extras)

Here's another record collector video series I was featured in (2012): here

I do consider selling items from my collection, so if you see something you're interested in, feel free to drop me a message - ideally with your actual offer amount/range or I'll probably ignore it. But don't ask me to send you digital rips of a record or "file trade", are you joking?
