Groovetech Podcast 084 – Techno, House and Minimal

Being able to keep your music on a physical format makes it attractive to me, building a collection is a thing that can take years and it could never end as long as you keep feeling excited about it. I might sound a bit like a Luddite and I can see the viewpoint that staying stuck in the past wouldn’t lead us to any change or evolution. However, it can be powerful to bring the way you are seeing, feeling and experiencing the world at your best into your life today. For me, in terms of action, my DJ-ing is probably more “live” than any computer music performances. I move around, tweak sliders and knobs, constantly switching and cueing up records etc. But there is something that is lost by DJs who ignore vinyl entirely. They skip quite a few steps in the DJ process. Finding gems while digging or being after that certain record for a long time and then finally getting it somewhere makes you keep loads of stories, memories, and adventures in your mind. At the same time, sharing those moments with other music fellows make those experiences even richer. I think this is where the love for vinyl lies.

Since You’re Here …

… I have a small favour to ask. Did you know it can take me up to 8 hours to curate, master, edit, upload and share my weekly podcasts? That’s a full day of work but I am happy to share my vinyl collection with audiences.

Unfortunately I am also an adult, and maintaining my gear, turntables and records do carry expenses. So I have setup my virtual tip jar searching for a coffee. I didn’t setup a Patreon page to make a living, or get rich, rather, I’ve setup my Patreon with the intention of using it as a channel to reach out to my followers and fans.

If making a recurring donation on Patreon is too much of a long term commitment, perhaps buying me a coffee suits your budget. Click here to donate a few dollars using Paypal, otherwise, my future would be much more secure if you were to become a Patron by clicking the orange button below.
