Fuse TV’s Crate Diggers is a fun show if you are into collecting music, and as you can image pretty much everyone at Onomatopoeia is. I thought I would throw up two recent episodes of the show featuring two collectors who are widely known for their obsessive and impressive vinyl collections. We start things off with Cut Chemist of the Jurassic 5 who speaks from the Stable, aka his vault of vinyl where he shares his experiences and stories from a lifetime of digging, revealing rare treasures, his method of organizing, and growing up as a DJ in a musical household.
DJ Z-Trip rounds out the second video with a discussion on his 60 thousand or so records. The DJ is quite humorous about things revealing that he lost a many a girlfriends over his collection often spending vacations searching for record stores instead of on the beach! Like the Chemist video Z shares his preferred method of organizing his collection, BPM’s, as well as stories about his first record ever purchased, his most expensive record, show vinyl, mixing and collecting rock over the more popular jazz and funk and why he is known as the king of the dollar.
