Today we present you the room by Tom Terrific (Innsbruck, Austria). Tom posted his picture to the wall on our Facebook page. Of course you will get to know him a little bit more in the short interview:
When did you start being a DJ and producer: “Djing (and some – albeit minor – production work) since 1997. Although after ca. 2005 Djing only sporadically.
Tell us a bit more about yourself, Tom: “I am part of the “creativ collective” named ZiP6020. Together with Dj Philmonic and Dj Smokey Joe I am part of the DJ-Team Soul Snatchers. Here and there have been “the help”-Dj for the Hip Hop combo IBK-Tribe (MCs Benjamin & Sensay). Music I play: mostly Hip Hop including natural contrasts of Funk and Soul. Music I like (besides the aforementioned): Jazz and simply every piece of music that has groove!”
Size of your record collection: “Sadly my vinyl doesn’t weigh a ton. At a guess my collection’s size is somewhere between 600-800 12″ and some nonrelevant amounts of 7″ and picture discs ;) I have to admit that I turned into an MP3-bitch (+20.000 songs) and today I only buy vinyl when I hold some 12″ to be an absolute necessity for my collection.”
The highlights of your room(s): “The highlight of the room is an Akai MPC-2000 (sorry, it’s not in the picture). I definitley have to include in the higlight list a hand drawn circuit diagram of a Vestax PMC-06 Pro – that thing really came in handy when I had to let it reapair some years ago (thanks to the unkown japanese guy that has drawn it himself and that i downloaded it from after searching on the web for ages).
Your alltime favourite record: “I was asked to name my all time favorite record – I cannot! Rather I list my absolute top three favorite mixtapes ever made: Roc Raida – Stuck in The Past | Dj Melo D – Classic Sound | Cut Killer – Hip Hop Soul Party Vol. 2”
