Boiler Room Collections: EGON

Egon — June 27, 2014 | Comments (6)

Boiler Room set up shop in Egon’s office in Highland Park, Los Angeles, CA as he digs through his own collection, playing a few records.

This is currently streaming at BoilerRoom.tv and the archived video is embedded above.

Eothen “Egon” Alapatt runs Now-Again Records, he’s one of the Rappcats crew, and the former general manager at Stones Throw (2000-2010). Also check out Boiler Room’s editorial piece about the day the session was filmed: “We had the great pleasure of being let into the Now-Again Records office this month. Long before Collections was a concept, but very shortly after Egon impromptu opened for Madlib at our San Francisco show with heavy psych gems, we had the irrepressible urge to trawl through his records. Timing saw us pushing this one back quite a bit, so when the cohesive idea of Collections was introduced we eagerly re-approached the idea. We’ve of course picked up snippets here and there through the label itself as well as via his Funk Archaeology series, but nothing beat us seeing – strike that, hearing – for ourselves.”
