DJ Babu’s Vinyl Collection

FUSE checks in with DJ Babu of Dilated Peoples and The World Famous Beat Junkies for the latest installment of Crate Diggers. They talk what makes him tick and take an in-depth look at his record collection – a library of stacks representing multiple genres and countries, including a good number of joints from Poland. Babu discusses everything from his first records to country & western breaks and digging in Brazil with Cut Chemist and J-Rocc at a multi-level record store – an adventure that eventually led them to a mansion full of records. He also talks about the glut of vinyl shops in Japan, haggling for records and DJing a quinceañera. Babu reveals a few choice gems and offers some pretty funny commentary in the process.
