Slum Sociable,
The TVD First Date

“I first got into vinyl at the age of 14.”

“Melbourne’s largest vinyl store Vinyl Solution lay just around the corner from my family home, so every weekend I’d take my bike and purchase a second-hand vinyl or two. I had a really lovely next door neighbor who introduced me to bands like Mahavishnu Orchestra, Can, and David Axlerod around that time, so I’d always be crate digging with them in mind.

Around the age of 19 I got heavily in to sampling old records because of my obsession with artists like Madlib, J Dilla, and The Avalanches. I always enjoyed asking Glen at Vinyl Solution about these old records that I’d never heard of and testing them out to see if there was anything I could sample. Artists like The Mamas & the Papas, Dave Brubek, and Joe Pass.

Vinyl has always been such an important part of my life and my family. Just before he passed away my grandfather gave me his old vinyl cupboard given to him by his father, which was a massive moment for me. I store all of the records I’ve ever collected there.

My grandfather is also the cover star of our debut self-titled album, which is coming out on vinyl too. That’s pretty special.”
