Fuse's Crate Diggers series has been a boon for vinyl culture and crate digging enthusiasts around the world. The series has spotlighted DJs and record collectors such as Young Guru, Adrian Younge, and Hank Williams III. This week, the series spotlighted the record collection of DJ Eclipse, a staple in New York City's underground scene for his work at Fat Beats and his two radio shows: Rap Is Out of Control on Sirius XM radio and the Halftime Show on WNYU.
Eclipse's record collection lines the walls of his Queens house from the kitchen to the master bedroom. He has roughly 28,000 records in his collection, ranging from house music to test pressings of underground rap acts like Natural Elements. In the interview, Eclipse talks about how he got into record collecting and explains how he keeps the vast collection organized. The video features Eclipse's son, Max, who entertains himself with the records and even tries to get on the turntables at the very beginning. It's an adorable moment.
Tomorrow, Eclipse and the Halftime Show will be celebrating their 15th anniversary with a party at Le Poisson Rouge. Eclipse will be spinning alongside DJ Riz, Stretch Armstrong, and DJ Premier. Check out the flyer below for more information.
