Record Collection

September 14, 2006


We get sent compilations for days at ye olde FADER office, usually of the "just OK" variety. But sometimes you get smashes! The Collectors Series is a new venture from Stefan Struever, who founded !K7's fine DJ Kicks series. It's designed to give DJs and other turtleneck dance music types a vehicle to dig into the stacks and showcase their otherwise underappreciated favorites. The first two discs are most decent; "Pt 1" has tons and tons of minimal techno (actually quite good in a background music sort of way), and "Pt 2" features disco-not-disco / house-not-house picks (Tones on Tail! Yello! Sasha Frere-Jones's old band!) courtesy of Berlin's Kaos and Liquid Liquid member Sal Principato. Track both down at Forced Exposure, and keep your fingers crossed that "Pt 3" and beyond will be as listenable (dudes, get at Peter Brown...)
