**Sales**
So I recently came upon about 800 or so jazz records, a few random 70s and 80s records and a few hundred shellacs. I would be interested in making bulk sales. The more you buy the more you get. I am in PA. Contact me for any questions. I tend to grade harshly and generally go a half grade to sometimes a full grade lower to be safe. But I then price in the middle and to what I know about the overall condition. I take lot's of things into account. I especially grade covers strict. I also grade at a record store, I used to be an editor and moderator here on discogs so I know it well and I have been collecting for 35+ years. These 60-70 year old jazz and old shellac records are a bit different then what I normally sell but I learn fast and I have a memory like a bat. And I like to learn. Hit me if you have any questions. If you order more than $70 I will send you some free $2-$5 type records in VG/VG+ condition as a bonus. Just remind me

posted a review of Solvent - A Panel Of Experts / That Will Be 49¢. 2 months ago
A classic by Solvent. Just wished they would have put the Lowfish remix on the flip side. You would have then had the ultimate paring as each one is great in its own right. Still, the blueprint for the Solvent sound. Still fresh as the first day I heard it. See full review

Electric Mistress is my pick of the bunch. First heard Robbie Hardkiss use this on his 1996 mix Mixed Messages. A proper minimal track that is a great bridge track in a house or techno set. Mechanical funk. The track cascades up and down so simply. A... See full review

Sutekh was one of the best minimal/glitch/techno producers of the period. From about 1998-2006 he was one of the premier artists of this style. Whether it was his own, a colaboration or a remix, he would most often be the standout track on whatever... See full review

Numina is one of the best ambient producers over the past near 25 years. His music can be on the darker side but not too dark or droney. It's an old skool ambience in the vein of Steve Roach but perhaps a bit more focused then the more ever-evolving... See full review
