Jett Kwong,
The TVD First date

“My first record was a clear, limited edition of David Bowie’s Hunky Dory. From there I began building my small collection with my favorite artists. “

“With music, and any media for that matter, there’s something lovely about experiencing it with intention. Choosing a record to put on has a different feeling than streaming endless songs. In a world where we are bombarded by noise and screens all the time, playing records is such a tactile, meditative experience.

Some of my favorites records are ones from Patsy Cline, Nat King Cole, Cyndi Lauper, and the Carpenters, with a few random Chinese, Vietnamese, and Turkish records from the ’60s – ’80s I’ve discovered through the years. I don’t have a huge collection and it’s much more curated to my favorites.

The songs and artists I always go back to are great to have on records because it makes the experience of listening that much more special, especially because the quality of a record is subtly different from digital versions of songs. Though most of my records are from earlier eras, it’s been fun to add in new ones from contemporary artists who have taken the time and made the investment in creating vinyl for their music.

I’m excited for the day I can make beautiful vinyl for my releases!”
