LP, Vinyl record album

(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

The best work yet from Parisian producer and hip hop instrumentalist Onra – delving deeper into Southeast Asian inspired soundscapes than ever before – a project that Onra ban after a trip to Viet Nam, the land of his grandparents! Chinoiseries trades in timeless boom bap, build from and inspired by Asian records that Onra picked up on that trip – giving it a very natural flow and a cohesive vibe. One of our favorite records on Favorite Records! Includes "The Anthem", "Chop Your Hands", "Relax In Mui Ne", "Welcome To Viet Nam", "Live From Hue", "Clap Clap", "I Wanna Go Back", "War", "Dark Sea", "Boundless Boundaries", "What Up Duyet?", "Take A Ride", "The Ritual", "One Day", "They Got Breaks Too" and "Hope".  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Wild Pitch, 1994. Near Mint-
The leftfield, loopy charm of the first UMC's LP is subverted for Unleashed – in which the crew takes a turn towards hardcore – a move similar to one made label mates Main Source around that point in time.
