M: "Tokyo (Japan, It's where I am from, Japanese people go deep into geeking out, which is always a plus to find anything good!."
D: What are your first memories of collecting records?
M: " I was always really into music, but my boyfriend in my early twenties had a massive record collection so i never considered buying records, i always thought his records are mine too!? So when we broke up at 26, i started getting into buying my own."
D: What is it about vinyl that makes you dig it?
M: " That you have a story / memory behind every record you own. I love jamming out with friends and going through stories behind the record you put on."
