Reel-to-Reel DJ

Screen shot 2013-02-08 at 14.23.45Whilst doing some research for my F.M.P. I came across these two incredible videos featuring some insane reel-to-reel tape DJs from Latvia.

Under Soviet rule the country was unable to acquire Western music, so some of these guys used to record songs straight from pirate radio stations onto their own tape. They would then use custom built players to DJ on in the underground nightclubs. Meanwhile we were all jacking-off over our CD version of ‘(Everything I Do) I Do It For You’ by Bryan Adams.
