The official Record Store Day book for 2014, Dust & Grooves is a 416-page coffee-table book that profiles over 130 vinyl collectors and their collections in the most intimate of environments—their record rooms.
With a foreword by the RZA, compelling photographic essays are paired with in-depth interviews to illustrate what motivates record collectors to keep digging for more records. Readers get an up close and personal look at a variety of well-known vinyl champions like Gilles Peterson, Four Tet, and Mr. Scruff as well as a glimpse into the collections of other known and unknown DJs, producers, record dealers, and everyday enthusiasts.
“Working on Dust & Grooves has been like going back to school, but this time it was school for music, filled with passion & love. Here is a little glimpse of what I’ve learned from the collectors I’ve profiled during these years, a brief glimpse into their musical planet. Thanks for the trip!!
