Now that vinyl has been fully revived, Moby’s realised that there’s a market for all the old records he’s got knocking around his house. So he’s going to sell them all off. For charity, mind.

From tomorrow, he will begin selling off over 1000 twelve-inches and seven-inches he used to play when DJing in New York in the late 80s, covering early house, techno, hip hop, indie and more. As well as these, he’ll also be selling signed copies of his own albums on vinyl.

“There’s just so many to go through”, he says. “These are records that I bought and loved and played and carried around the world. And I would so much rather you have then than me. If you have them, you’ll play them, you’ll love them, and then the money goes to the Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine. Everybody wins. Except me, because now I don’t have records”.

The store opens tomorrow here. And you can watch Moby flick through a few of the records on offer here:
