Collectors, dealers, fans, come one, come all to The First Annual DJ Shadow Storage Sale. Shadowâ€™s not selling his collection, but he is pulling back the curtain on a brace of dupes heâ€™s managed to process over the last few years. Expect a strange and broad assortment of lesser-seen vinyl in all genres, most offered under $15, and with an effort to price well below established online value. â€œThis is a chance for producers, dealers, and DJâ€™s to access seldom-seen and eclectic vinyl at affordable prices,â€ says Shadow. â€œThese are all records I have other copies of, and Iâ€™ve decided that I donâ€™t need to keep multiples. Think of it as a year-long thrift-store hunt consolidated into two days.â€
Shadow has also found some unsold â€œnew/oldâ€ stock of his own projects, many of which were only ever sold through his web-store. Vinyl, CDs, DVDsâ€¦even VHS tapes, all-Shadow related and sold on a first come, first served basis. The man himself will of course be on hand to sign anything and everything, or just to say hello.
In addition, thereâ€™s the outliers: good music in unfairly ignored formats such as 8-Track, reel-to-reel, and cassette. â€œVinyl is so fetishised, but I actually covet other formats equally,â€ says Shadow. Explaining further, he adds, â€œFor example, ideally, I would want James Brownâ€™s Payback album on reel, cassette, and 8-track in addition to vinyl. If it existed as a first-run consumer product, I need it in my collection.â€ If this logic appeals to you, then youâ€™ll be interested in checking out these format oddities.
Love music? Love records? Love hanging out with cool folks? Then youâ€™ll have a good time at The First Annual DJ Shadow Storage Sale. See you there!
