Dig In: A-Dog Sells His Records

Posted By on Thu, Mar 11, 2010 at 3:07 PM

Christmas in March? For vinyl nuts it just might be.

According to a recent post on his blog, Queen City turntablist DJ A-Dog has sold his records. No, not just a crate or two. His entire collection. Burlington Records announced today via Facebook that they are in possession of A-Dog's stash, which totaled more than 25 crates. A-Dog even made a quick video to commemorate the occasion, which you can check out here.

Responding to an email inquiry, A-Dog suggests that the collection had become more cumbersome than it was worth, writing that he is, "just getting rid of a lot of weight that I don't use anymore." For the last few years, the veteran DJ has primarily been gigging with Serato, a digital program that connects turntables to computerized music libraries and essentially negates the need to haul record crates from club to club.

As for selling to Burlington Records, he notes, "I feel good about it because they are the kind of place that gets enjoyment out of recycling the music into the next generation's hands."

Let the digging begin.
