Oh my days, I don't even want to think about it.

I buy back-cat garage, dubstep, instrumental hip hop on the regs and have done since I started mixing, so I guess this equates to about 10-15 vinyl a week?

Bare cash. £4000 per anum. Ooofff...

£130 last week.

£45 this week.

I probably end up spending about £200ish a month. Oh the joys (or not) of getting paid weekly! When Monday morning comes around, after getting pissed up all weekend as well, i usually have very little cash left for the rest of the week. :D :cry: :D

It varies. Probably around £60 a month on average I reckon. Havn't bought much in the last 2 month though due to stupidly high bills to pay :x

Over the last 6 and a half months, I've spent about $1500-1800 CAN. Thats for all types of music though, hip hop predominantly. Only got my tables 8 months ago though, and I was working non-stop for awhile, so I'm just getting to know all the records I have right now, and went on a hiatus for buying 'em.

It really is an addiction, if I see the money its gone once I get it. And my buddies bust my balls for not getting CD decks 'because I can just burn cds and play em without spending a dime'. I tell them they'll go to hell when they die haha

i have to limit myself to 100 pounds a month. want to get it down to 50 and only buy the real quality tunes that i know i will be listening to for ever. used to spend 100 quid a month on DnB thinking I would love it forever but I never listen to any of it now. got to stop thinking like a dj and concentrate on shelf life.

but as long as there's labels like hyperdub, skull disco, punch drunk, berkane sol, tectonic... doomed.

Thats about $240 aussie per week :o

Ive never spent a cent on vinyl but what I do is always support any dubstep event proper.
By thaT I MEAN I drag along my mates , always pay cover chARGE & DRINK COPIOUS AmOUNTS of alcohol AT THE BAR TO SUPPORT THE NIGHT.

Nohing better than dancing to bass heavy music listening to DJs who pick out the quality tunes on a big sound system .

All I gotta do is lose it on the dance floor. Worth every penny if you ask me


PS. Cant believe Im going to miss out on LOafEH next weekend :|
