  1. Is like this post is speaking to me. I recently switched to vinyl when I read that vinyl has way richer mids and lows. I love to sample bass lines and drums so i copped an old turntable from the swap meet which in my opinion is better than sampling from cds or mp3’s. I’m waiting on my financial aid money from school so i can pick up a pair of Stanton ST-150’s, and a Vestax PMC mixer along with Serato. Maybe this is the new wave of contemporary music and thats why this blog has had a big following and why more and more people are buying turntables and vinyl.. or it could be other factors..mhh we’ll never know
