    I've recently discovered that Pikmin 2 on Wii, a game I was given as a freebie with my second hand Wii U, seems to be worth 40-50 quid now. For the reasons you state I think. 


    I've got a sealed copy of Pokemon Diamond for the DS, I checked ebay recently to see if it was worth anything and one had just sold for around £200! They must have sold millions of copies of that game, I don't understand how its worth so much?

  2. I'm not sure if this is the right thread for this, its like a reggae/funk/afrobeat/disco/house crossover but its fabulous! *looks at Discogs prices and cries*



  3. I've been watching this documentary about legendary engineer/producer Paul C:



    Its quite long but to hear how highly respected Paul C was and the contribution he made to hip hop is fascinating.

    Once new reggae embraces the autotune it'll be massive.


    Vybez Cartel is one of the biggest artists in the world, so your analysis checks out.

  5. I'm a bit too old to have my finger on the pulse of contemporary music and the reggae influence is everywhere nowadays in mainstream pop music and has merged into latin and African pop music, it all sounds a bit manufactured nowadays, but newer artists who are trying to inject some of old feel into their music are Chronixx (who is massive around the world):



    Or Proteje:



  6. I had to dive deep to find it, when you search for reggae on this forum you just get a load of posts from people declaring that they don't like reggae.


    It does feel like we're reaching a time when a lot of these artists are getting to the end of their lives unfortunately :(

  7. I don't think I trust Discogs pricing anymore, it doesn't make sense to me.


    For example I was checking the price of a rare record I own by British Jazz legend Ian Carr, its an original pressing on Vertigo, a highly sought after label:



    So its valued at around £150-£200, which is great but there's bloody loads of them on sale so how can it be worth that price? It feels to me that people don't really want to sell these records so stick them on for a ridiculous price and if someone comes along and buys it then that's a bonus.

    After MF Doom passed away the prices for his music went crazy, like £80 for Madvillain, a really common album that's been repressed loads but when you check what has actually sold no one is actually paying these prices. It feels like Discogs is turning into a site for people to brag about how much their records are worth.


    Thats not to say that there aren't any bargains on Discogs, its just not great with the more well known rare stuff. The best way to find records is still out and about, I've found a first issue of the Suicide LP in a moldy barn, I paid a fiver for a pink label King Crimson from a boot fair, and even ebay still has some good stuff, I got a mint Tangerine Dream LP for a fiver the other week.

    Finding Lee Dorsey - Yes We Can LP mint for a pound in a charity shop is one of the highlights of my life :lol: 


    I get so much more pleasure finding awesome music for cheap, a bargains thread would be great.

  8. ^^^That beat is killer!

    Anybody else been watching the BBC’s Hip Hop: The Songs that Shook America series? Easily some of the best hip hop docs I’ve ever seen, they seem to have interviewed everyone. They’re all fab, but the Queens Vs Bronx and Queen Latifa episodes are particularly good I thought.



    I've only managed to watch the Run DMC one which was great, I need to catch the rest when I'm less manic with work.
