10 Pack of Nuggets & A Rare A$$ Record

I’d like a 10 pack of Nuggets and a copy of McTrax please… Nerdy factoid: in 1983 McDonald’s joined forces with a local Atlanta radio station and released this regional Boogie comp. WTF! I must say there are 2 really tight songs on here tho. Shout outs to the cute girl working at #academyrecordsannex for hooking me up with the cardboard mailer. (I should have gotten your name) I didn’t want to ruin the awesomeness of the sleeve in my flimsy bag. #vinyl #vinylartwork #cratery #cratelife #shitfrommycrates #recentarrivals

Arcee + Kaewonder + DJ Serious = Cratery 25: Dollarate II

I am really proud to be a part of this monthly podcast called Cratery…

What began as a humble, hour long dig-diary is now a vital, vinyl ritual, complete with it’s own cult following, monthly party and award-winning logo. We begin our 3rd year of Cratery with a 2nd. The 2nd official edition of Dollarate: our post-holiday guide to wallet-friendly digging. Theoretically, the records on this month’s podcast are all records that you should be able to find for $10 and under. Please don’t be that dude that drops $20 on Fancy’s Wild thing LP in the Cosmos beats and breaks section. As usual, Kaewonder, Serious and I go one-for-one on some dollar bin heat that just might have you sifting through a stack of Roger Whittaker/Nana Mouskouri/Mantovani records at the local Goodwill you’d all but given up on. Don’t forget to join us for Cratery Live: This Saturday February 5th and the first Saturday of every month at Red Light (1185 Dundas St west).

Ekambi Brillant – Nayo Nayo

This ain’t worth more than a dollar… just kidding.

I spent a lot of my formative years digging in MTL.  Back when it seemed like on every random street, you would find a record store that would pop up and then disappear within months,  me and the crew would easily come up on Lee Gagnons, Sloches, Ian Carrs, and Ekambi Brillants.  I wouldnt consider this to be a great record by an stretch of the word, but it does have a few moments here and there… and of course… DRUMS.
