#mayvinylchallenge Day 01- Records that (re)started your collection.
I started buying records around 1981. But I have to admit that from about 1990-2000 almost 100% of my music purchases were on CD. My interest in vinyl got reignited by electronic music 12"s like the 4 Ambush (UK) label titles here, which were often available only on vinyl and designed primarily for DJs. Around 2000, inspired by some local DJs, I became especially obsessed with a specific electronic music subgenre of "breakcore"- of which these particular 12"s are a very small sample of my collection and very good examples of the style, especially the Aphasic. Breakcore mashed up some things I really love- noise, bass, speed, distortion, cut ups, collage, breaks, glitches, dub, dancehall, jungle. Eventually by about 2001 I became an all-vinyl guy again and all was well with the world. This is all very ironic since breakcore as a vinyl thing really died down about that time. It exists (if at all?) mostly on soundcloud & bandcamp. Aphasic "Bass & Superstructure" 12" EP, 2000 / Slepcy "And Again" 12" EP 2001 / Noize Creator "Deferred Media" 12" EP 2001 / Din-st "In Case of" 12" EP 1998
