Stock sale impro by Lowdjo

The digital world has slowly been killing the record industry, while almost everybody has started downloading the last few years, including me, record sales went down in every musical genre.. so far i thought the more specialised scenes like the dj-world would always keep buying vinyl but i notice that even a lot of my 'active' friends in the dj world switched to digital. By this i mean ordering their 'dj-tools' in high-quality-digital-form, next to downloading unreleased tracks to use in their sets. By doing this, small and even big businesses get bankrupt and can't supply people like me with excellent, fresh and avantgardistic music..
On the other hand, the technological evolution created amazing machines that allows us, dj's, to use the digital formats like old and dusty Elvis Presley records and try to create the same atmosphere, only with endless possibilities and effects to manipulate the original sound.

This summer i went to a couple of stock sales in the 'record biz' of record stores that closed their doors and one big distributor in Belgium, Lowlands (article in dutch). Next to this big distributor their was my favourite record store in Brussels and definitely the most interesting one in Belgium, called Le Bonheur - "Epicerie Audiovisuelle". Unfortunately i won't be able to shop there anymore and supply you listeners with excerpts from this recordshop.. thankfully there's still something like mailorder!

So i got my hands on something like a 100 mint condition vinyls in different formats for half or less the original price and recorded this mix after listening once to each record.. here's a 80 minute-impro-recording of a couple of hours of listening pleasure, enjoy!
