THE_E.TremontStevieB Discogs Mix 82 – Walla P

Walla P is acknowledged as one of funk’s contemporary ambassadors, owing to his expertly-curated selections and passionate demeanor.

The Montreal native runs Voyage Funktastique, a global brand that includes a monthly live event, a weekly radio show, and a record label. Armed with an intense love of all things funky, Walla P presents his passion through rare grooves and dance moves, as he effortlessly journeys from classic to modern funk. The Music Is My Sanctuary collaborator has brought his vibes to crowds in Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Lyon, Brussels, Frankfurt, Cologne, Copenhagen, Nantes, Montpellier, Marseille, Strasbourg, Toronto, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Mexico City. He’s shared the stage with DâM-Funk, Kaytranada, Pomo, Onra, and Peanut Butter Wolf. He’s performed on Boiler Room and at festivals such as Osheaga, Piknic Electronik, Igloofest, Festival d’Été de Québec, POP Montréal, NXNE, C2 Montréal, 24HOV, M For Montreal, and Montreal International Jazz Festival.

SoLil Crate Minds: An Interview With Discogs Record Seller, Buy24Hours

While we love visiting as many record stores as we can, there are many record sellers on Discogs who don’t have a brick & mortar shop, and who are only selling records online. Despite not having a physical storefront, these record sellers still have plenty of good tales about their journey to record selling, collecting, and the culture that surrounds it. The Crate Minds record seller interview series is all about sharing these stories to give you a glimpse behind the (virtual crates).

Meet Jörg Tillmann, who has been selling records on Discogs as Buy24Hours for over 10 years. Check out what Buy24Hours has got for sale and pick up a gem!

Discogs record seller, Buy24Hours

What’s your name & role?
My name is Jörg Tillmann, I am the owner of buy24hours.de.

When did you become a record seller on Discogs?
On July 3rd, 2008.

How did you get into selling records?
I have always been interested in music and buying and selling stuff at flea markets. In the early 2000s I started to expand my activities to the internet. At first I sold everything, like books, household items – even furniture. At some point I met a German DJ who was selling his vinyl collection. We made the deal and all of a sudden I had, like, 10000+ vinyl records on my hands. Most of them were house, techno and trance so I started to selling them online. While I was looking for a good place to sell vinyl, I found Discogs and became a member.

Do you have a physical record shop, or do you only sell records online? 
I only sell vinyl online through Discogs and another platform. I don’t have a physical shop, only an office with a warehouse (about 200 square meters).

What is your specialty?
I am not specialised in a certain style. Starting with the electronic range, I soon came across many other collections. I widened my range to rock and pop, as well as classic and even children’s records and German Schlager.

What was the most valuable item you ever sold?
Hank Mobley’s self-titled album sold for €1100.

What does your own record collection look like?
My own collection is very small. I have about 400 LPs at home, 200 of them are children’s records for my kids. Both of them have been playing records since they were 2 years old. I hardly even get a chance to put my music on the turntable.

What is your personal holy grail record?
The Velvet Underground & Nico

What’s the funniest thing that’s happened to you when selling records?
That time when a guy from Spain wrote to me: “Do not send me a positive feedback after payment, ok? It’s very important for me, my wife spies on my Discogs account :-(“

What is your number one tip for buyers on Discogs?
Enjoy the great variety on Discogs and if you are not satisfied with an order, do contact the seller to give them the chance to solve the problem.

And for record sellers?
Be nice to your customers 😉

What’s your favorite feature of Discogs?
The open database that everyone can work on.

Diognes_The_Fox The Discogs Top 50 Best Selling Records Of March 2019

My pants have a huge rip in them and the hole keepings getting worse. On the plus side, if you never leave the house like me, it doesn’t really matter that much, but the breeze is pretty strange. March was like that: a strange breeze, warm and wet during an otherwise abysmal time. I was in a caught up in a storm of life changes, but so were many of you.

That month we lost Keith Flint of The Prodigy much too soon, with fans wanting to reconnect to the band’s music. In parts elsewhere, we see jazz and funk reissues, a small handful of perennials, and the first time I’ve ever opted not to show a release image due to graphic content. Otherwise, enjoy the calm before the RSD storm next month and let us know what you think.

Discogs Staff Altin Gün’s Turkish Delights: A Guide To Turkish Music

Dutch-Turkish collective Altin Gün are breathing new life into the Turkish pysch rock of the early ’70s, adding modern-day flourishes to classic influences. Their latest record, Gece, was just released on ATO and stands toe to toe with the garage-psych of labelmates King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.

To celebrate the album’s release — and the rich tradition of Turkish popular music — Altin Gün is giving us their guide to Turkish music, with some essential album selections and a playlist of chock full of serious jams.

Selda ‎– Selda for sale

Selda ‎– Selda (1976)

Definitely one of our favorite Turkish records of all time. Intense vocals, phased fuzz guitars, cosmic synths and an extremely groovy rhythm section. Holds the bangers Ince Ince and Yaz Gazeteci. Those songs were also my introduction to Turkish music. Finders Keepers Records did a reissue of this with some extra tracks and also in a different order. Unfortunately this pressing doesn’t sound so good. I hope one day this gem will be reissued in its original form and sound quality. Original copies in are hard to find and expensive.

Barış Manço ‎– 2023 for sale

Barış Manço ‎– 2023

Barış Manço was Turkey’s most famous rockstar and TV presenter. He was one of the pioneers of the Anatolian rock movement in the ’70s. His house in Kadıköy is now a museum, and there’s even a ferry with his name in Istanbul.
2023 is definitely his most spaced-out cosmic adventure. He wrote a lot of his own material but like most Turkish artists, he also did a lot of standards and traditionals.

Zafer Dilek ‎– Oyun Havaları for sale

Zafer Dilek ‎– Oyun Havaları (1976)

Zafer Dilek isn’t as famous as the other artists in this list but was involved as producer/session player and arranger on a lot of Turkish classics; Selda‘s first album for instance. His solo albums are all instrumental versions of Turkish folk classics. This is is his best, grooviest, and most sought after album. A great listen from start to finish and a big inspiration for us as a band.

Erkin Koray ‎– Elektronik Türküler for sale

Erkin Koray ‎– Elektronik Türküler (1974)

A lot of people call Erkin Koray the Turkish Jimi Hendrix. Definitely on the heavier side of the Anatolian rock scene. A brilliant musician, but you can ignore his later work. Elektronik Türküler is Erkin Koray at his best. It’s his second album. His first and third albums are also worth checking out, especially for classics like Mesafeler and Estarabim.

Fikret Kızılok ‎– Zaman Zaman for sale

Fikret Kızılok ‎– Zaman Zaman (1983)

This is the only album from this list that I don’t own on vinyl. I really hope someone will reissue this one day. Unlike the other artists in this list Fikret Kızılok was a real singer/songwriter that performed mainly his own material. He’s been recording since the 60s but this 1983 album was only his second. He was more into releasing singles I guess. When I asked the owner of Deform records in Istanbul about the ridiculous prices for this record he said very little copies were made because of some legal issues. That’s also the reason it hasn’t been reissued I think. Luckily it’s on Spotify. Perfect Sunday morning album. Warm sounding mellow folk.

I didn’t want to include any compilations in this list but I can really recommend the Bosporus Bridges series. Volumes one, two, and three are all amazing.

We made a playlist on Spotify with some of our favorite Turkish tracks available there.

SoLil Crate Minds: Meet Peter from Mixed Up Records Glasgow!

In this edition of Crate Minds, we’d like to introduce Peter from Mixed Up Records in Glasgow. Peter has been selling on Discogs as mxdup98 since 2007 and was present at our first Crate Diggers in the UK a few years back. He’ll be traveling to Brighton this weekend to join us at Crate Diggers. Ahead of the fair we asked Peter a few questions!

What is your role, and can you give us a bit of background on yourself?

I run Mixed Up Records in Glasgow, which I’ve been doing since I was 19. I used to play music in bands with my friends, I played guitar.

That is pretty young! What was it like running a shop at 19?

It was a bit crazy really, as I didn’t have a clue and record shops were in steep decline. I just liked picking up records and would be excited about what I’d find next. Back then people were literally chucking records out and into skips and things, so there were a lot of cheap (or free) records about. Charity shops and car boots were great, too.

Can you tell us a bit about Mixed Up Records and its history?

The shop started in 1997. We specialise in secondhand records and cover all types of music. We believe good music comes in all forms across all the genres, so don’t like to count anything out!

Mixed Up Glasgow Interior 2

What was your inspiration for opening the shop?

I liked a lot of indie guitar bands of the ’80s and ’90s, but as a teenager I got into dance music, hip-hop, and sampling. I remember DJ Shadow’s Entroducing album coming out when I was 18. I was fascinated by the way an entire album could be made up of samples from old largely forgotten records. Discovering music on vinyl is like nothing else. Music can sit forgotten for decades then can be rediscovered and brought to a new audience. A new generation can come along and reinterpret old records and make it sound fresh and up to date. With the record sleeve and artwork you get a feel for the time and place the music was created.

Do you have a specialty? What sets your shop apart from others?

We specialise in good quality, secondhand records of all types really. You’re as likely to find jazz and funk next to psychedelic ’60s LPs, northern soul, and even classical records. We do some brand new stuff too; new music we like or reissues of hard to find records.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

I enjoy meeting the customers and people who are passionate about the music they love.

Do you have any favorite or memorable moments in the shop (or fairs) thus far?

Having Jurassic 5 in the shop was a buzz. Cut Chemist listening to jazz records on his portable record player was a memorable moment. Jimmy Page was cutting about at the last record fair I did in London.

Mixed Up Glasgow Interior

What does your personal collection look like?

I don’t hoard records as much as I used to. These days I’m happy to enjoy them for a little while, then move them on. Some things are hard to let go of, as you know you won’t see them again.

What can we expect to find at your table at Crate Diggers?

A bit of everything really. We have a lot of the classic stuff plus some more unusual things. It’s always worth looking through our stall, as there are usually a few surprises tucked away in the racks.

Is there anything you’ll be digging for at Crate Diggers yourself?

Not sure, maybe some disco, world music.

Check out Peter’s selection  at Crate Diggers Brighton! We’re looking forward to seeing you at The Brighton Center on May 11. Free entry to the record fair all day, starting at 10 a.m.!

SoLil Crate Diggers: Bringing A Bit Of Manchester To Brighton!

With only a few days to go until Crate Diggers Brighton, it’s time to introduce a few more special guests! Rotation.MCR, Manchester’s record fair and after party posse, will be making their way down to Brighton to bring you the best of the city’s record scene. In advance of this Saturday’s Crate Diggers, we had a little chat with Paul from Rotation.MCR.

What does your personal collection look like?

I have been buying records since 1978 so my personal collection is quite varied, with an underlying tone of soul and funk. After 41 years of collecting, it is currently spread over 3 rooms in my house whilst we redecorate, so it’s a bit of a minefield. Content-wise my collection joins the dots between jazz, funk, soul, hip-hop, Afro, disco, boogie, house, and techno.



What’s your favorite record in your record bag right now and why?

That’s a tough one because it’s always changing. I’d say it’s either The BB & Q Band’s On The Beat, Sharon Redd’s Beat The Street, or Alton Edwards’s I Just Wanna (Spend Some Time With You), all of which I picked up recently at record fairs. They are all classic records and have the qualities I’m looking for right now – funky, groovy, proto-house vibe that I can play at my favourite venue.

Which record fair or shop do you never leave empty handed?

The Rotation Record Fairs we put on in Manchester always turn up something new for me, because the dealers that come down have seriously good taste. Record shop-wise, it’s always worth a good rummage in Vinyl Resting Place, Vinyl Exchange, and Eastern Bloc.

What can we expect to find at your table during the fair?

I will be on the Dig Deep Records stall as part of the Rotation sellers area alongside some of our other dealers. We sell what we love and there isn’t a record in our boxes that we don’t own ourselves. Style wise you can expect disco, nu disco, funk, soul, jazz, house, Afrobeat, Latin, hip-hop, techno, boogie, beats, and breaks with some rock and reggae thrown in for good measure.

Tomlin Jam MCs Dave The Ruf Reiss Johnson

Tomlin Jam MCs, Dave The Ruf and Reiss Johnson

Which other dealers will be with you on the day?

We are bringing two of Manchester finest record dealers Tomlin (Jam MCs/Delectable Lovers) and Dave The Ruf (Jeep Beat Collective, Mindbomb, and Godfather Of Weird). Believe me when I tell you what these two don’t know about good music is not worth knowing. Tomlin has been supplying the Manchester underground with killer vinyl selections for longer than most can remember, whilst Dave has over 10,000 records listed on Discogs alone! Both are also prolific DJs in their own right with fond memories of playing at Po Na Na back in the day.

Who will be representing Rotation DJ wise at Crate Diggers?

We’d heard there might be a bit of a Brighton/London/Manchester face off DJ wise, so we are bringing our A game on the DJ front with Rotation residents Reiss Johnson and Paul Thornton both bringing a mixed box. You can check out their DJ mixes here.

Will you be digging at Crate Diggers yourself? Anything in particular that you’re hoping to find?

Definitely!!! The whole crew are looking forward to picking up some gems to bring back to Manchester, be that to either DJ with, trade, or simply to add to their own collection. There are certain bits and pieces I’ll be looking for, but for me the best bit of crate digging is finding something I don’t already know…

We’re looking forward to seeing you in Brighton! More than 100 tables, free entry to the record fair from 10 a.m.

Enter our competition to win free tickets for the after party with Jurassic 5 presents: The Fullee Love Collective, David Rodigan, General Levy, Zion Train, Jehst and the legendary Sister Sledge!

SoLil Crate Minds: Meet Andy From Disc Covery Records!

In our Crate Minds series, we highlight the people behind the Discogs accounts. Andy Halstead from Disc Covery Records has been selling online and at record fairs for years.

You more than likely dug through one (and probably more) of Andy’s crates if you have ever been to a record fair in England, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Scotland, Spain, Sweden or the Netherlands. And he will be travelling all the way from Accrington, Lancashire to join us at Crate Diggers Brighton this weekend, so this is a good time to introduce him!

Hi Andy, can you give us a bit of background on yourself?

I’m the director and founder of Disc Covery Records and do the buying, selling and trading online, and at Record fairs in the UK and Europe. I worked for my Dad in the Supermarket business for 10 years, from when I left school in 1981 to 1990. Then started my own business in March 1990 and have been enjoying it (mainly!) ever since.

How did you get into record selling?

I went to my first record fair at King Georges Hall in Blackburn back in October 1986 at the age of 21, with two boxes: one full of 7″ singles and the other a small box of LPs. I shared a 6ft stall with my friend Barry and his brother Ian Pearson, and it escalated somewhat from there!

Can you tell us a bit more about your business and its history?

Like I said, I started selling full time as business in 1990. To help me start up, my Dad – who had sold his supermarket and retired in 1989 – gave me a van to travel to record fairs in. I started selling online around this time and formed my company Disc Covery Records. I placed adverts in record collector, Record Mart & Buyer and also used to advertise and sell on MTV Teletext which went all round Europe.   

Disc Covery Records

Do you have a specialty? What sets your selection apart from others?

I started off just selling punk/new wave & indie music which I knew most about, but quickly realised I needed to sell most styles of music. So I would say my speciality is now heavy metal, classic rock, punk, indie, and pop. I have a massive collection of vinyl records and offer my customers at record fairs a big selection of their favourite bands and artists. Where some dealers have one box of mixed rock or metal, we try and have one box of Iron Maiden, one box of Queen, one box of Bowie etc.  

What do you enjoy most about selling records?

I love meeting people either at record fairs or over the phone or online, and sharing my and their love of music and collecting. I’ve made many good friends over the past 30 years doing this wonderful labour of love. It’s great when you find something really unusual, and to see the reaction from collectors when I can offer these great items to them.

What are your favorite or memorable moments at record fairs?

Many great moments at record fairs in the UK and abroad: Meeting Jimmy Page and having him buy records off our stall and thanking me for selling them to him. Being at the Barcelona Record Fair when The Damned played, and watching Dave Vanian and Captain Sensible run along the railway lines whilst still singing and playing guitar. Always loved doing the Dublin Record Fair in Temple Bar and having a great time at the event, and at night afterwards of course. I have also enjoyed every single Rebellion/Wasted/Punk festival in Blackpool every August for the past 22 years, selling punk records over four days and chatting, drinking and generally having a great time.

What does your personal collection look like?

My own personal collection is not many too be honest, as I get a lot of pleasure out of letting other collectors buy what they want from me.

What can we expect to find at your tables at Crate Diggers?

I will have a great selection of punk, new wave, heavy metal, classic rock, prog rock, pop, and indie music. Mainly vinyl:  7″ singles, 12″ singles, and LPs, priced from 50 pence to £500.00. And I will also have some CDs and DVDs. And if anybody sees anything in my Discogs shop, I am happy to bring their orders to Brighton so they can save on shipping. Just leave a note on the order! 

Is there anything you’ll be digging for at Crate Diggers yourself?

I am always looking for nice clean vinyl to sell especially by the likes of AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Queen, U2, Clash, The Damned, Kiss, David Bowie and many more!!



Find gems from Andy and dozens of other sellers at Crate Diggers Brighton! We’re looking forward to seeing you at The Brighton Center on the 11th of May. Free entry to the record fair all day, starting at 10 a.m.!

2019 Q1 Global and Regional Report

Today we’re breaking down data from Q1 of 2019 in the Discogs Database and Discogs Marketplace. This time around though, we decided to dig a little deeper than usual. In addition to looking at global trends, we identified a handful of countries and gathered data on three region-specific categories: most expensive items sold (all listed in US dollars), best selling release variants, and top contributors (based on the release country of submissions).

This new level of granularity elucidated some interesting tidbits. For instance, it looks like the US loves expensive 7″ singles, Denmark has a serious thing for homegrown collective Nobody Beats The Beats, and Mexico spends more on CD singles than most other countries.

Below you’ll find global data for most collected new and catalog releases, most expensive items sold, best selling release variants, and top contributors by rank points, all followed by the regional breakdowns.

2019 Q1 Global and Regional Report

Today we’re breaking down data from Q1 of 2019 in the Discogs Database and Discogs Marketplace. This time around though, we decided to dig a little deeper than usual. In addition to looking at global trends, we identified a handful of countries and gathered data on three region-specific categories: most expensive items sold (all listed in US dollars), best selling release variants, and top contributors (based on the release country of submissions).

This new level of granularity elucidated some interesting tidbits. For instance, it looks like the US loves expensive 7″ singles, Denmark has a serious thing for homegrown collective Nobody Beats The Beats, and Mexico spends more on CD singles than most other countries.

Below you’ll find global data for most collected new and catalog releases, most expensive items sold, best selling release variants, and top contributors by rank points, all followed by the regional breakdowns.
