£100 to spend. Ten minutes to spend it. One wall of vinyl to spend it on. This is the Record Sweep.
Our crate digging game-show gives contestants ten minutes to spend one hundred pounds at the monster record emporium Vinyl Pimp.
Our next contestant is Lisbon-born London-based rhythm oracle Rita Maia. A Resonance FM resident, Rita’s weekly radio show “Sine Of The Times” tracks everything from downtempo and broken beat to Brazilian and African sounds. Here’s what she picked up with £100 in just 10 minutes.
