Legendary NYC college radio DJ Eclipse sat down with Fuse for their Crate Diggers series to break down his exhaustive record collection.The turntablist, manager, Rock Steady Crew member, and Fat Beats ambassador went over how he organizes collection, which consists of over 28,000 records, ranging from house music to underground rap. Included are a lot of test pressings from his days at Fat Beats, including a Natural Elements record that includes his scratches on it.
The collection covers his entire house. During the interview, Eclipse joked that he now places items in front of the shelves because they have essentially become a part of the walls. Throughout the interview, Eclipse’s son makes numerous cameos. The video begins with him trying out the turntables, stopping and starting the record.
Tomorrow, Eclipse will be celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of his Halftime Radio show on WNYU. The party, which will be taking place at Le Poisson Rouge, will feature DJ sets from DJ Riz, Stretch Armstrong, and DJ Premier. Check out the flyer.
