Techno (loads of acid techno)
Reggae/Ragga and Dub
Hip hop
Acid house
Jungle
D&B
Classic rock 60/70's bluesy stuff
Grunge
Punk
Electro
Breakz
Soul and funk

bit of everything really. Whatever catches my ear.

Problem with being into multiple styles is the expense and having room to store it all. haha

Appart from Old Skool Hardcore/Breakbeat I also collect Heavy Metal vinyls. I always was and still am into metal. Frankly, I buy more heavy metal records the last couple of years than old skool :p

Apart from 91-94 hardcore/jungle I have:

- 95-99 jungle and d&b
- 88-94 house/acid
- 97-2000 trance
- 80-95 hip hop
- 95-99 happy hardcore
- 98-2013 hardcore breaks
- And a small pile of crap that I can't get rid of (Now! albums, early 90s rave LPs, 2 Unlimited etc.)

They're all relatively small collections in comparison though, only 100 or so of each.

Old U.K hip hop. Was a hell of a lot more releases than I thought from the late 80s early nineties.

My house and techno collection is bigger than my hardcore collection by at least 2:1
I also collect hip hop, reggae, soul and funk, jazz-fusion and some rock.

Hi,

I'm not just a DJ, I've been an avid collector for far too many years.

I collect all sorts of genres, but I think my most complete things must be:

1988-2000 'rave/hardcore'
1994-1997 'ragga/jungle'
1968-1979 'prog rock
1963-1972 'psych rock'

although i do love buying tunes, i have to limit my collection in some senses. to the stuff i like mixing the most, not just what i like. just for space and money's sake!

so other than oldskool:

gabba is the main thing, about half of my collection. mostly 90s stuff - ranging from bouncy techno type crossover stuff up to the harder/faster tunes. have a bit of new stuff, but it's getting smaller. (and quite a lot of that is 2000-2006 or so). mostly the more uptempo stuff (160 to 300 or so), although i still like slower as well.

happy hardcore - only started buying it again the last year or two but have a decent amount. all 90s - from early piano breakbeat to big kick power cheese :D

breakcore - not loads, and it's also shrank a bit recently. mostly late 90s to mid 2000s. and again mostly focused on stuff it's fun to mix. here particularly there's stuff i like which i don't find satisfying to mix.

and the odd bit of jungle / breakbeat hardoore / ravey d&b that fits with some of the above. i do love mixing it all together too :D
