Give Me A Break Part 1

Here's something I wanted to do for a long time now. You see, although I've been using Serato since 2007 I never quit buying records. On the contrary, my record collection got a lot bigger. Once I started travelling to do shows or simply on holiday I had the pleasure to shop in many big and small record stores all over the globe. (read about my adventures in California) But I hardly ever use my vinyl. The convenience of using Serato as a DJ on the road is simply too big.

With the project  "Give Me A Break" I can finally showcase my vinyl collection in a true old school way. And I have tons of fun doing it. I love it all: the pleasure of cutting stickers to make cue points, getting a stack of vinyl in your hand, going through a bunch records, make sure you got doubles, changing the records on the turntables as fast as possible. What's not to love about that!

So it's a pleasure to introduce to you part 1 of the series "Give Me A Break":
