Groovetech EP 23 – Vinyl Makes You A Wiser DJ

I’ve collected vinyl off-and-on since I was 15-years-old, and obsessively since I was about 18. Although digital technology has made it easier for people to acquire and carry thousands of songs around in a tiny music player, I still remain attached to physical music recordings – vinyl records. The medium puts emphasis on the roots of DJ culture; one mixer, two turntables and your record collection. I see my record collection less as a collection of objects that I prize and more as a set of knowledge that I’ve acquired. Anyone can push a “sync” button. But there’s no substitute for learning to mix vinyl.

But, that’s just one man’s opinion.

Before I go, I do suggest you support the artists whose music I weave together, by buying their music directly – all of my mixes have full track listings so you can support the artists by purchasing the tracks individually – you can listen & purchase tracks directly on Mixcloud or Juno Download.

Be a Guest on the Show

If you play underground music, I want to hear from you. Send me a message including a link to your Mixcloud or SoundCloud and thoughts about your music convictions and if things work out I would be privileged to have you on the show in the future. Consider this: it’s all about the heart and soul so what I want to hear is a mix that you really feel and like, not just something to get more fans or gigs. It’s not about you – its about the music.

About Andreasrouchos-dj-toronto-techno-house_Intro_Header

Andreas Marouchos (Short, Rouchos), is a DJ from Toronto. Playing Techno and House, Andreas has been a professional DJ since 1998, playing sets in four countries. He is also a podcasting pioneer, with live audio and video mixes stretching as far back as the last millennium. Despite the progress of technology, Andreas still collects and spins 100% of music on Vinyl as he believes that “putting a laptop between a DJ and the crowd seems boring”.

You can catch his podcasts on CTRL ROOM and DJFM

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 set up 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.
