LOW VOLUME SELLER= TIME TO TAKE CARE OVER MY GRADINGS & CUSTOMERS :-) Im fussy about grading. I grade close up, under bright light, & have 20/20 vision & 'engin' ears'. I am not a trader, these are my personal records for sale & all have been treated with care. Your in safe hands.........

Record collector since 1981. DJ since 1990. Originally from Nottingham, England. Inspired by drum machines & experimental electronic music. Survived the rave/hardcore/acid house/early house, techno, drum & bass/80's/90's electronic music scenes & beyond to present day. Raised/schooled on Hip Hop & electro. Drum break fanatic. Major Jazz & Funk disposition. Likes a bit of Disco. Tastes: B-R-O-A-D

My advice when selling on this site is to read the Discogs grading rules, read them again, put your glasses on, open the curtains, study the vinyl surfaces & grade correctly, close up under a bright light. Would make it a better place for all. I don't believe that grading is subjective, I believe that some just don't do it correctly...

I have sold many more records than my feedback shows on Discogs (around double) plus double that previously on eBay & other platforms, however not all can be bothered to leave feedback. From those buyers, no news is good news, so rest assured, your in very safe hands. I keep my records in prime nick & bin garbage/damaged records, I don't sell them. Right now I am selling a very small selection of unwanted records, all in great condition. I am yet to disappoint, & intend to keep it that way...

It's a real mystery as to how these legit full instrumentals ended up on a UK release; why such a tiny market compared with the USA? Either way, to hear these tracks stripped back to beats & samples further highlights the genius of ATCQ.
