Crate Diggers

Date June 11, 2013

Back in December 2012, I dropped a post about Fuse’s Crate Diggers series. Check it here.

Date December 23, 2012

Guess this was launched back in May, but I happened to just come across it this week.

Crate Diggers

Date December 7, 2012

Crate Diggers series on Fuse! Hella dope! Loving the commentary throughout and laughed at being able to relate to some of the obsessions they mention as well as being a fiend for vibrations. While mine has largely been in formats other than vinyl (the ol’ crates of wax haven’t seen any additions since moving to […]
