Pursuing new projects, Dave Haslam intends to release a series of mini-books he terms ‘Art Decades’.
The first book tackles record collecting, and follows the belief that a record collection acts as a sort of alternative biography.
A Life in Thirty-Five Boxes: How I Survived Selling My Record Collection is out now and it traces Dave Haslam’s life and career, before ending with the DJ saying fare well to his collection – he sold 35 boxes of vinyl to Seth Troxler last year.
