The best of virtual crate digging - Vintage Obscura & Ezhevika

Ok so not exactly a file exchange, but finding out about Vintage Obscura and Ezhevika changed my world so I wanted to share it with you all. Vintage Obscura is a Youtube channel that doesn’t have any content, just makes playlists, except they’re playlists of endless vintage breaks, acapellas, weird noises, etc… I’ve found some amazing stuff on there that’s made it into tons of my songs.

Quality is sort of a crapshoot but I’ve found that because the S2400 warm, downsampled sound to it, it sort of masks the crappy quality of some of the sounds. It’s free at the very least and good luck trying to hunt some of these vinyls down. Many videos are so abstract it might be the only place you’d ever find them anyways.

The Ezhevika blog generally has better quality but you have to download the entire album and sift. There’s some absolute GOLD in there though. If you’ve got any other good crate digging resources, post them here!

Vintage Obscura on Youtube - new songs are added frequently and new playlists get added every year.

Ezhevika 2020 - check the sidebar for previous years, it goes back to 2006!


Thanks for these!

Nice share. Thanks.

Just remembered another one: Vinyl Archeology

You can google that name and you’ll get Facebook groups, Twitter pages, subReddit’s, etc. I tend to like the Youtube playlists the best.
