Seth Troxler has purchased Dave Haslam's record collection.
Haslam recently announced he would be selling his impressive collection of wax, that includes approximately 4,500 records, with most of the stack acquired during Haslam's time as resident DJ at legendary Manchester club, The Hacienda.
On the record exchange, Haslam said: “They'll give pleasure to Seth's audiences, just as they gave pleasure to me and the audiences I played them too. I'll miss them but they've gone to a great home.
"My thirty years of DJing is in this collection, including all the records I played on the four hundred occasions I played at the Hacienda in the 1980s, beginning with funk and soul and electro and Factory Records stuff, and on through industrial and alternative music and into the early acid tunes and the house music revolution. And then the 1990s too, bleepy stuff, disco, the euphoric floorfillers, and the wild and weird records I loved and wanted to share with dancefloors from Manchester to Paris and Berlin to New York I had some tempting offers, but keeping the collection together was an important thing for me."
Seth also explained his choice to buy the full collection, saying: "One factor behind my acquirement of this amazing collection was the transfer of one working DJ to another; and the fact that I will be presenting to people around the world as they were intended to be heard".
Dave is set to hand over the collection sometime in December.
