Audio-Technica Partners Discogs Homespun
Audio-Technica and online record marketplace Discogs have got together to support record stores around the world.
Discogs Homespun series is a global tour of record stores where each will share their favourite cuts from their vinyl collection in hour-long live-streamed DJ sessions on the Discogs Facebook and YouTube pages.
Naturally, you need equipment to play the records on and this is where Audio-Technica has kindly stepped in. The Japanese audio brand is supporting Discogs by providing every record store involved with a pair of AT-LP140XP direct-drive turntables, a set of M-series professional monitor headphones, and an AT-XP7 dual moving magnet DJ cartridge. Audio-Technica's partnership with Discogs Homespun runs from May 18th until June 26th.
The Homespun series launched in April and aims to promote record stores as well as encouraging you to buy vinyl from the participating stores via the Discogs platform. Homespun has featured livestream sets from the likes of Ben Blackwell from Third Man Records and will run a full programme globally throughout May and June.
Viewers watching the shows via Facebook Live can also donate to the MusiCares Covid-19 Relief Fund, set up by The Recording Academy in support of those in the music community affected by the global pandemic.
