Jackmaster has revealed that he wants to sell off his physical record collection in its entirety.
One of the most in demand DJs in the country right now, Jackmaster's ability to spin hugely eclectic, dancefloor ready sets has pushed him to the forefront. Using Serato, the Numbers lynchpin is able to leaf through an enormous arsenal of tunes with relative ease.
Sadly, though, this means that his vast vinyl collection is going un-used. Since first entering Glasgow rave hub Rub-A-Dub as a teenage workie the DJ has amassed a huge collection of tracks - some of which are incredibly hard to come by.
“It’s with a heavy heart that today I begin to sell my entire record collection on Discogs. Will post the link up here soon…Everyone asking me why I’m selling my records. It’s because I don’t play them anymore. Better that someone loves and cherishes them instead of them sitting and gathering dust here. I can probably use the money to put down a deposit on a house. I own a lot of very rare records.”
The announcement prompting a lot of heavy sighing from vinyl heads, who bemoaned the general shift away from wax towards modern tech. No doubt reading through a few responses, a bemused Jackmaster wrote on Twitter: "If you're so into vinyl then be happy that I'm selling my records, not sad. Crazy bastirts."
