My records are both a collection of musical memories (of times in my life) and colors on a canvas. I have always collected music I loved (regardless of genre), which led to an eclectic collection. I enjoy having a wide range of music to pull from. Since DJing mostly went digital, I’m currently collecting UK Jazz and 80’s freestyle/ disco-rap on vinyl.
What do you look for when you buy records?
Music that connects and weird stripped down edits/remixes. While labels and artists matter, so does album art and editing credits.
What do you like about sharing music at Analog Market?
I love getting to play an extended set and really dig deep into my collection. And good coffee!
Where are you from, how’d you end up in the DMV?
I grew up in the DC area. But my journey took me from Richmond for college, and then the SF Bay Area for 17 years. Then found my way back.
