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

Obsessive about music, sound & vinyl. I'm fussy about grading. I grade close up, critically, 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 very safe hands.........

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 regular disappointments buying on Discogs from those who apparently need glasses.

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...
