My record collection has about 10+ different genres running through it, and I've always played by season (Breaks/D&B in the winter, Uplifting stuff in the summer). However, I'm just in a breakbeat-related phase at the mo, so anything bought will be breaks-related.

I've got a few 00's Breaks wants on my Discogs wants list that I have to buy any day now, and there's a few '91'-'92 bits that I need to get as well.

Besides them and a few new scratch records I won't be buying anything else from a different genre.

Do you buy anything other than Rave music? If so, what do you buy, and what's the purpose of buying it?

Buy a lot of different styles. For no purpose other than i enjoy them, always finding new/old music.

Generally buy Acid house, oldskool, 93-95 jungle, tech step, acid trance, techno, reggae, 60/70's rock, grunge and rock, a bit of electro and hip hop (although have been slowly selling this off), movie soundtracks and classical.

I used to buy 93 hardcore and 94 jungle, and still have some, but it's too expensive these days. I also used to buy new hardcore techno until about 3 or 4 years ago, and also a lot of breakcore too. The trouble with that stuff is - you could build really interesting sets, because it's a very varied style of music. But at the same time it also meant you'd have these tunes that you could only mix with about 2 other records :/ Plus I had quite a few tunes that I really loved but weren't really that fun to mix.

I also used to buy a lot of old gabba of various types - but I've sold off a lot of the slower and faster stuff. Some of that stuff is among my absolute favourite music, but I don't have the money or space to collect everything I love, music wise - so I have to compromise.

So these days I try to restrict myself to the stuff that's fun to mix casually, that I can buy quite cheap, and that goes with a lot of what I have already. These days that means - happy hardcore, bouncy techno, and more recently also some oldskool hardtrance. And my most recent love, makina.

It doesn't reflect my full range of taste - but i have them for mixing, which is why i'd rather have a few styles well represented than have a few of everything.

I've actually thinned mine out recently. I used to have fairly healthy 80s/90s hip-hop, 80s/90s house/trance, 90s hardcore, and 90s drum & bass collections. But I never play any of those genres so I recently sold all but my 20 or so absolute favourites of each to free up more space for hardcore and jungle.

I'm collecting early Hard Trance recently.
Didn't even know this genre until I found few songs from the compilation CD.
In my country, while most Oldskool Rave & Hardcore are still played from time to time, no one plays Hard Trance.
It's something like Atlantis for me.

Used to only buy DnB and Hardcore but recently been buying all sorts from 70's and 80's classics. Haven't bought as much hardcore recently as record prices are quite expensive. Also been buying the late night tales albums and classic Hardstyle. Want to get down the record fair in Bridport, Dorset, I miss proper record shopping rather than buying off the internet.

Everything and anything, really.

Krautrock and progressive from the 70s, punk, post punk, new wave, 60s garage rock and psychedelia, folk, blues, jazz (mainly 1950s-70s modern), soul (especially northern and popcorn 7"), iskelmä (that's Finnish schlager pop, from 1950s to early 80s is my sound), ska, skinhead reggae and oldschool hiphop to name a few genres.

In winter it's most likely cool jazz and jazzy iskelmä like this recent 7" of mine:

I really like that, any more recommendations? I'm also starting to buy new wave synth pop. Stuff like:

Eleven Pond - Watching Trees


Units - High Pressure Days


Makers - Don't Challenge Me ( I like this one because it sounds like the kind of thing R2-D2 would put on in the background while he romanced a lady robot)

A bit obvious, maybe, but certainly worth a mention when talking about new wave. And these guys were certainly ahead of their time:
