The 'Haynes Vinyl Manual' is co-written by iDJ's own Matt Anniss
This Thursday sees a launch party taking place for the Haynes Vinyl Manual at the Love Vinyl record store on Pearson St in Shoreditch.
The Vinyl Manual is co-written by iDJ's very own Matt Anniss and veteran journalist and editor Patrick Fuller. Between them, they explore the history of the vinyl record as a music format, the technicalities of how turntables actually work, DJ techniques, the best places to find rare records and much more.
The launch party at Love Vinyl will see Matt spinning some tunes alongside Bill Brewster and some very special guests whose names haven't yet been announced, but who are said to be culled from the book's extensive list of interviewees (which includes the likes of Jazzy Jeff, Steve Davis and Gilles Peterson).
The book launch runs from 5pm-8pm, but if you can't make it along, the Haynes Vinyl Manual goes on sale tomorrow, priced £22.99.
