We also get Doug and Andy’s takes on the future of vinyl collecting, and why Doug believes it to be just another fad. Andy and Doug also recount some of their personal favorite interviews that they conducted with the likes of Cameron Crowe, James Murphy, Stewart Copeland, and James Blunt. Lastly, Andy shares some of his favorite records with us, before he and Doug take on The Fox Crate DJ Challenge.

    EP17 - Paradise City Records And Stuff (feat Induce)

    We visited Paradise City Records and chatted with co-owner, shop keeper, DJ, artist, and fellow digger - Induce, AKA Ryan Smith. We got into the hustle of opening and running a record shop in Los Feliz, and heard some of the lessons he’s learned in year one. As an L.A. transplant from Magic City (Miami) - Ryan talked about his early digging days as a Hip Hop head/ DJ, and also discussed his current radio show at Dublab. Lastly, we asked Induce to walk us through his “dream” DJ set as we played some Italo bangers along the way.
