Noon — 5PM

On March 12th, Egon’s hosting a record store at Rappcats, selling records from his collection, one-day only. This is the first pop up of 2016, and will be done every quarter, with unique records being made available at each event. For this event, he’s selling records from jazz legend Stanton Davis’s collection, which he and Madlib purchased in 2011 (see NPR’s “Excavating Stanton Davis Storage Unit Funk”) amidst rarities culled just for this event.

Also available will be the entire Now-Again catalog — for a one day discount of 25% less than our normal retail. If you can’t make it to Highland Park, all online Now-Again orders from the Rappcats store placed on 12/12 will receive a 25% discount as well.

Egon is one third of Rappcats, alongside Madlib and Jeff Jank, and the Now-Again imprint is a large part of the store. He’s also regarded as one of the world’s most record-collecting elite, and was profiled in Dust and Grooves and Crate Diggers, as well as numerous documentaries. Expect a slew of records from the uber-rare to the cheap and essential at his Rappcats pop up. And if you miss this one, he plans to do these once a quarter in 2016, bringing out unique pieces each event.

Stream: Egon’s Rock Mix

Now-Again | Jul. 22, 2014 | News | ,

Via Rappcats, on Egon’s mix done for the release of Madlib’s Rock Konducta album:

“This is a mix of late 60s to mid 70s rock music from all over the world: America to Germany to Japan and everywhere in-between. It’s the type of rock Madlib used for the Rock Konducta records, and is a mixture of the incredibly rare and random dollar bin finds that makes crate digging in the rock idiom so much fun. A lot of this is underground – one example was literally recorded by Dusseldorf twenty-somethings in a bomb-shelter, a literally exorcising of Nazi demons through Krautrock – and some of it is from bands that had pop aspirations but recorded something heavy and probably a bit odd as the one-off awesome track on an otherwise forgettable album. Live mix using 2 CDJs, no edits, some mistakes, that’s the way it goes. Shout outs to Twink, Bunker Records, Franz Wippel, any band that spells April with a “y” instead of an “i,” state-run labels from former communist countries who had the nerve to get down with hard psych and Madlib, of course, for finding the funk in all of this.”
