Now that’s what we call being brutally honest with yourself. A seller on Marktplaats, Holland’s Craigslist, has put his two Technics SL1210 MK2’s up for sale, and for a very specific reason. Not the usual “I don’t have time to play them anymore” or “I’m only playing CDJ’s now” were decisive in his choice to sell, but rather seeing Antal, Rush Hour record store co-founder and local DJ veteran, play his all-nighter at De School last weekend.
Translated from Dutch, the advert text from seller ‘Huilen’ (to cry in Dutch) reads as follows: “At this point I’d like to sell both my Technics SL1210. Yesterday I saw Antal at De School and it’s time to be perfectly honest with myself and others. I am never going to even come close to this man. Antal was [so] good.”
