Vincent The Soul Chef

I love music... any kind of music... as long as it's groovy.

After a decade of trial and error, here is the official website where I attempt to chronicle my forty year obsession with all things vinyl. I dedicate this endeavour lovingly and respectfully to each and every single cratedigger the world over, who has offered me education and inspiration either directly or indirectly. Without you, this site, much less my record collection, would cease to exist. Thank you and enjoy.

It was almost twenty years ago (including the Ultraviolet Pop trilogy)

Hello, kiddies.

I had yet to study the epic DJ Shadow record from back to front, although I was still playing it religiously... that would happen soon enough, but I was slowly changing colours as it were. I was still embracing the Alternative records pretty heavily, and had a stack of life changing CDs that I carried with me like textbooks... that brings us to the reason why we're here. I unearthed three old mini disc compilations that I had made back in 2000 or so that pretty much was the soundtrack of my life for about a year and a half straight. Here they are.

Why Ultraviolet Pop you may ask? Well, as you listen, you may notice a pattern. The soundscape gives off a definite hue of sorts... I started with three. Pink, orange and purple. Red would have been too easy, not to mention disrespectful to the Cocteau Twins hahaha!
