Profile

Record collector since 1981. DJ since 1990. From Nottingham, England. Inspired by drum machines & electronic music. Survived the rave/hardcore/breakbeat/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. Original broken beats & experimental garage head. 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... Some folk apparently need glasses & a good Johnsons ear bud session!

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...

Silk is just the master! Like Todd Terry in the 90's, Steve bossed it on the early Chicago scene & remains highly underrated. 'Jack Your Body' broke out of the underground because it absolutely rocks any dance floor no matter what you know about dance... See full review

Hugely underrated early Chicago house from Steve 'Silk' Hurley; retrospectively this is no doubt due to being overshadowed by the global success of 2 records: the 1st being Silk's own powerhouse hit 'Jack Your Body', and the 2nd being 'Love Can't... See full review

In line with KaiAlce's comment, 'The Bounce' is an off-cut / track derived from the same session as the Incognito 'Everyday' remixes of the same year. 'Mels Dub' & the 'Everydub' mixes (https://www.discogs.com/release/818916-Incognito-Everyday) are essential!! See full review

Wakey wakey folks; 'Just Electricity' was a monstrous anthem in 2007 & 15 years on, it remains undeniable & absolutely huge. 'Fantomas' does the doo too. Euphoric, emotive & slightly dark. A lost, weepy moment gem on the shit hot Trapez label.
