Over the past few years, vinyl has made a massive comeback with record-breaking sales. And although people are rediscovering the magic of wax, in the techno scene, vinyl has never lost its place. So much so, that there are plenty of artists who unfortunately have fallen into the vinyl purist/snob category. That's not to say all everyone is like that. For legendary Italian DJ and Key Vinyl label head Freddy K, there is just simply no other option. You won't see him bashing other methods, he just loves everything about the black plastic. And not just playing it, but also distributing, selling, and promoting it as well. Add to that his lengthy career and regular gigs at Berghain, De School, Bassiani, Reaktor, Dekmantel, Soenda, Forte, Dimensions, it's safe to say he's got a record bag filled with rare and obscure gems. Forever being the curious beings we are, we asked Freddy about some of the most sacred records he's kept in his bag since the beginning.

Often in my bag, Joey Beltram as his best... groovy and hypnotic. A perfect track for every moment of the techno set.
