  • Record fairs

    I've been encouraged to do this on the board but have always been away when they were on in Dublin. And the booters were a total washout for selling records - sold €50 worth to one guy at one and nothing the next time.

    The next record fair is 23rd October - where they'll be emphasising dance music as it is the same weekend as the Dublin Electronic Art Festival. I am wondering if this'll be full of aspirant DJ Shadows looking for weird shit to feed into their samplers who might go for some of the more exotic/stupid/funky records I have or more likely a bunch of Carl Cox wannabes looking more BST (Bog Standard Techno) 12"s. Though maybe I could get a decent price for my spare D-Mob "We Call It Acieed 12". At €60 for a table it could turn out to be a costly mistake.

    Anyone with more experience of these with advice would be appreciated.
