DJ, musician and designer Ziya Ertekin lives in Rotterdam and collects old 78 rpm records. Lots of them. He travels afar to find them and as a DJ he shares his discoveries with his audiences, playing them on a 1957 Garrard turntable through a Fender Vibroverb guitar tube-amp. He also releases CD compilations of selections from the collection. The latest is called Congo Jazz, containing rare gems of classic Congolese rumba as well as some sizzling hot jazz, gospel, jug-band and exotica from the lost world of direct live recording. Ask him too about Argentine tango, swing, rhythm & blues or fado. He's an enthusiast, a shellac hunter exploring in the junk-shop jungle, searching for history captured on a record, to bring it back into the light.
