Residents The Netherlands. Love for music sinds child days.

Born in the 70's. Grew up with 45 singles and LP's. Bought my first 12 inch in the mid 80's and spend my saving money on buying music until then.

Got love for Funk, Hip Hop, New Jack Swing, R&B, UK Garage and Drum & Bass.

Bought 2 Technics SL 1200's in the early 90's together with a Numark mixer for DJ'ing.
Latest setup: 2 Technics 1210 M5G's, 2 Pioneer CDJ-2000 NXS2 and Pioneer DJM 900 NXS2

From my early paper route work in the 80's and later my first parttime job in the early 90's I went to record stores on weekly basis. Rhythm Import, Dance Tracks, Boudisque, Black Beat (later Midtown) and Fat Beats all located in Amsterdam has been my favorite stores. Reminiscing and missing those times.

Put many Discogs hours in contributing releases from 2005 until now.

Always been playing records with DJ elements like Ortofon and Stanton. Sinds 2 years I am going through my whole vinyl collection with real HI-FI elements and just updated to a Goldring G1042. Never heard so much detail compared to DJ elements.

May 2019, i updated to a separate system with a modified Lenco L78, QS Audio Prelude MM/MC Phono AMP, Holistic Audio 103 CL MC cartridge, Rega Elex-R amp and a pair of Impulse speakers. Compared to my DJ setup this is Analog heaven.

June 2020, i updated my Lenco L78 to a Rega P8 (Planar 8) with Holistic Audio HA103 SEL. This is Perfection!!!

Now a days I'm going through my whole vinyl collection in cleaning, listening, new inner sleeves and rating on Discogs. I will try to give some reviews about sound quality in case of pressings. There are a lot of releases now a days which aren't always as good as in the early days.

My favorite style will be New Jack Swing together with Old Skool Hip Hop, 90's R&B and UK Garage (1998-2002)

I'm still collecting vinyl on a daily basis and will be doing this until the end of time

I have also been collecting CD's sinds the late 80's. Must say it got also some good memory's, the nice booklets and easy ripping to my portable devices but can never level with the sound of vinyl.

Vinyl Rulez!
