Discogs is pretty addictive.
However, I've learned that you're better off just splurging for the Mint condition records, "Very Good" and "Very Good Plus" my arse, I don't want to spend an hour cleaning them once they arrive! "Mint" all day baby..
Tonight I'm going through some personal bullshit so I decided to basically sit in front of my studio monitors and just blow my eardrums out. But at least I'm blowing them out with some really quality stuff.. Thanks to youtube, tonight I'm drowning myself in two of the songs that changed my life around the time I was playing out a lot in Orlando, a few years before I started touring in the Dominican Republic.
These were songs that filled me up with unparalleled appreciation and love for the underground electronic music culture. I would listen to them in my car and visualize my future life in NYC and beyond. I'd make life-long promises to myself to never give up. I was so desperately inspired to devote my life to this, and equally devoted to inspire others...sometimes that's what this music can do to you. I remember feeling like I was burning a hole through my window with my eyes while driving. I was visualizing so intensely, that's what these songs did to me. They gave me unwavering hope.
Tonight I bought these two records on Discogs, in MINT condition... :) two of the songs that changed my life and propelled me to stay on course. I cried my eyes out for the past hour while listening to them. Then I spent $50.00 and purchased them both..
They'll sit in my crate waiting patiently for that moment. The moment when I just know innately it's the "right" time to play them. Perhaps someone on the dance-floor is in need, in need of inspiration and a sturdy lifeline to grasp. Maybe I'll just feel it in the air and know it's time..only time will tell..
Truth be told I hope to play them at Output.. Yep, that's where these two golden records belong, on the main floor of Output...
