Andrei, the artist behind The Legendary 1979 Orchestra and the Legendary Sound Research opened his musical soul with a 1 hour trip into his cosmic disco sound (for our Introspections series) and revealed his passion for jazz, funk, hip hop, all pressed on the precious vinyl.
Your favourite jazz piece
There are so many! Top of my head right now would be: Johnny Hammond – Tell What To Do
The most valuable non electronic record from your collection
I think that would be Harold Vick – Don’t Look Back on Strata-East, a really funky jazz LP
Your most played hip hop artist
Definitely MF DOOM.
Your inspiration producer when it comes to house music
Mmm I have many here, but let’s say Mad Mike today.
Best record store for crate digging
The most consistent store I go to regularly is Redlight Records in Amsterdam. Always new (old) stock, great music and good pricing! The most fun is at the Utrecht Record fair though, twice a year all the big sellers from around Europe come to one place.
