Downtown Selector Year Zero

One year ago, I moved to Manhattan and, as a lifelong DJ, my heart was broken when I was forced to leave my decades-old record collection in storage and make my move with only my turntables. Over the past year, I have slowly added to my new collection here, but the cost-of-living increase meant that I’ve had to become very selective about these additions.

Not all of these records came out over the past year but they are some of the ones that I chose to pursue and collect during that time.

Mixed live on July 10, 2022, exactly one year after my move, as a love letter to my new record collection, home, and life.

52 minutes of the best music representing the best 52 weeks of my life so far.
