The beauty of collecting records for as long as we have is getting bored. Believe it or not, boredom is the friend of the record collector. We at Cratery started out collecting soul, funk and jazz – the cornerstones of hip-hop production. But after 5-6 years of focusing on these genres, we got bored. Why? Everyone started buying the same records, looking for the same sounds. So we moved on. Library records, Brazilian Funk and Disco 12”s started to sound more interesting. Until the public caught up and we were forced to move on again. Most recently, foreign psychedelic and progressive sounds have entered our vinyl vernacular, making Cratery a place where all forms of vintage heat come together. This month, we shuffle between Peruvian Psych, Spiritual Jazz, Football Libraries and Australian Big Band – and quite frankly, we wouldn’t have it any other way. Cratery 30. Enjoy.

Back for more and now up to date!

It seems like we took a little hiatus over at the lst few months but this simply is not true.  We are always hard at work, and even though we slipped on our deliver times a bit.  It doesn’t mean the we lost that passion, au contraire, we have been immersed in the dusty bins and came up with some treasures.  So no further a do… here is episode 29.  (episode 28 also available on… just incase you missed it.)


The straight up vinyl savagery among the crew seems to be rising exponentially of late. For followers of this podcast, that’s good news for you. It’s not necessarily good news for our collective wallets, but hey – all in the name of music, right? Cratery 29 genre-hops between Mongo Santamaria’s percussive funk, the progressive sounds of the UK’s Julian’s Treatment and Ingram’s jazzy disco sensibilities – like a person moving between different rooms at a really fucking amazing party. A free party. Happening on your laptop. Now. Cratery 29. Enjoy.
