    The strange world of discogs

    by sloth » Tue Jan 17, 2017 3:47 pm

    I've recently decided to sell off some of my vinyl on discogs. Most of it predictably has a market value of about £.0.20, but there are occasional curveballs. For instance, apparently this record (which I'll be listing as soon as I find it!) sells for over £100 (someone paid over £150 for it once??).

    What's that all about? I can only guess that some huge name DJ played it in a recorded set, and then all the "track id??????!!!" crew inflate the price to ridiculous proportions. Here's hoping Ricardo Villalobos starts dropping Doubledown records sometime soon.

    a couple of years back i went through and put all of my records up in a discogs database, had the same thing happen...with stuff that was... mostly meh.

    i think you've hit the nail on the head...somebody who's all tits and whistles puts a track on a mix and suddenly the demand skyrockets...
