To me they were and still are:

1. BBE - Seven Days and One Week
I was the first to order it at a tiny record shop in Belgium where many local DJ's bought their records. I heard it at the Club Real in Tongeren (B), a cool dark, maybe typical Belgian club at the time. Just noticed the shop (20 years later) still exists Disk Kid in Rekem. I must have been among the first in Holland to own it.
2. Nylon Moon - Sky Plus (over the Sky) Posted it on Youtube as first one. A beautiful dreamy piano trancer.
3. Face The Phase - Face The Phase II
Had to search long to find it, heard it at the Peppermill in Heerlen were we were regular visitors on Saturday, not Hardcore Fridays, where the club was known for. It's a track that works far more better in a club on a decent sound system than at home.

My father and my uncle used to DJ, so I always had CD players and 1200's in my room growing up. They had a hefty collection of mainstream music on CD and vinyl so I got into the formats early on. I didn't really start collecting on my own until early 2004, and from there's it's been full on hoarding without any pauses.

I often buy collections in bulk from sellers (mostly) in Stockholm. It's a great way to get to know new and old music, and I usually keep what I want and sell the rest. My main focus is collecting old (mostly 90s) techno, electro, house, idm, jungle, acid, ambient and similar styles.

On Discogs and other sources, I usually buy mid-90s compilations and cd singles to get full versions of specific tracks. Even if I have the complete vinyl version, I prefer having the full length version in .wav format ripped from CD for my own library.

When I purchase files online, nowadays, it's only .wav. If I'm going to pay for a digital file, I want the full thing, not a lossy mp3. I'm no audiophile, and I probably won't hear any difference, but I want to build a complete .wav collection of every track I like. It will never be complete, and that's a challenge I really enjoy. The library is linked to my CDJs so I can play the tracks without digging out the CD from the shelves.

I'm trying to buy less physical and more digital at the moment, because space is limited. Not everything's listed on Discogs yet, but I would estimate the collection to north of 8000 physical units.

My music collection currently looks like this:
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2118127861537359&set=a.1861174053899409.1073741826.100000204961454&type=3&theater

With a side of this:
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2118128058204006&set=a.1861174053899409.1073741826.100000204961454&type=3&theater

I'd be buried in vinyl if these were all records (re: albums, DJ mixes, and compilations broken down into the EPs the tunes often came from). That's a format I dare not start collecting, because a CD buying habit is bad enough. I'm astounded dudes like DJ Tsunami even has storage for all the records he buys. Guy's gotta' have a shed or something by now.

Genuine question:

Apart from DJ Tsunami, who would presumably singlehandedly manage to prevent the likes of ebay and discogs from toppling, and a few others posting recently, how many of you regulars still keep collections of / play / purchase vinyl records (to DJ with / to listen / for aesthetic reasons)? Anyone hunt rare vinyl releases, even when money is perhaps mostly spent on digital files and perhaps the odd CD? Having just purchased a couple of older records myself, and having had a proper look around on discogs, I can imagine it's tempting (to say the least) to bulk buy records, with so many great releases from such glorious progressive years like 2001, for instance, often apparently near-mint, going for next to nothing.

Just curious to see what especially those of you on here who are clearly very knowledgeable about both current and past electronic music are up to in this respect.


I have spent about £3000+ on vinyl in 2017 buying back vinyls I sold when I was younger and stupid.

I had began collecting WAV files from CDs and now I got them all I began to buy vinyl to rip those I couldnt get on CD or Beatport.

Then I discovered some tracks where upon ripping in 96kHz I heard elements of tracks I never heard before.

So then I had to buy everything on vinyl and rip it 96kHz. Then I had to buy an ultrasonic cleaner to make sure I was getting a high quality rip.

My last vinyl purchase (single 12") cost me £300 but it is one of the rarest records Oakenfold ever played so it was worth it as far as I am concerned.

These were my last two purchases, getting more expensive now as this stuff is rare not even mp3 rips of either out there!

Dude, 96k is nonsense for listening purposes. Anything above 44.1/48k and 16 bit lossless doesn't actually change fidelity, just the noisefloor, which is completely imperceptible with digital anyways.

I started buying vinyl around 2011. I'm at a bit over a thousand now, I think. I haven't been buying that much in the past year for various reasons but i'll get back into it eventually.

Yes my post wasnt well explained.

I just prefer 32/96 for ripping as I can then take it into Izotope RX5 at the highest quality recording level and detail and remove electrical hum and surface noise and any remaining pops/clicks.

I will export then at 16/48 for listening.

320s. I really don't see the point of WAVs. I've heard Sasha say he only DJ's with 320 MP3s, because the difference even on a world class soundsystem is negligible.

I probably buy about 30-40 tunes from Beatport every month on average. I generally wait until they have a 50% sale and then raze my hold bin. I can't be bothered typing up MP3 purchases in this thread though, especially the weapons I want to use in sets.
