I’m really happy to have a pair of Technics 1200′s turntables setup at Playloop west coast in Laurel Canyon. Can you believe they stopped making them?! I really love playing records and the physical interaction with the music. The warm rich sound of vinyl has a very unique sonic texture. I’m also obsessed with album cover art and the overall packaging experience. Led Zeppelin really pushed the artistic envelope with their covers and packaging. You should check out “Led Zeppelin III” and “Physical Graffiti” for next level examples of album design.
We spent some of the weekend shopping for records around Los Angeles. Hit Amoeba on Sunset Blvd, the flea market on Melrose and Freakbeat Records on Ventura Blvd. We purchased Underworld’s “Two Months Off”, Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumors” and Robert Plant’s “Principles of Moments”.
Did you know that vinyl record sales have hit their highest point since 1997? - Check out this story on the Washington Post.
L.A. friends and family, I’m DJing / performing at the LOVE STREET FESTIVAL on New Years Day (January 1st) at 6pm. It does feel kinda surreal that I get to create art and music in Laurel Canyon where many music legends lived or often visited (Beatles, Doors, Led Zeppelin, Zappa and more).
I grew up enjoying and studying several of these acts, and collected most of their records. Jim Morrison kinda predicted the future of music (video link). He does a pretty good job of explaining how DJs and electronic musicians perform (minus the tape part since we have gone digital). I’m looking forward to sharing some music with you as we set the tone for 2013
