About a month ago, legendary Haçienda resident and music writer Dave Haslam took to Facebook to sell his vinyl collection. “ALL MY VINYL is for sale, but ideally I would like someone to take the whole lot,” he wrote. “Approx 4300 records, around 90% 12″ singles, 10% albums.”
The lucky buyer is Seth Troxler, who we’re sure is totally stoked about inheriting a collection of records that shaped electronic music in the ’80s. Most importantly, the records won’t be releagated to plastic sleeves on some collector’s shelf, but will actually be used. According to Haslam, “The records were bought by me to be played—it’s a working DJ’s collection—and Seth’s commitment to music and to vinyl is fabulous. There’s stuff in there he’ll know and love but stuff he’ll discover too, and through him, and thanks to him taking them on and playing them out, new audiences will discover them too, and enjoy them.” What a beautiful deal.
