Haslam recently announced he would be selling his impressive collection, all 4,300 records, in a Facebook post, hoping they'd be taken together. Luckily for him, he was right.
On his choice to purchase the wax in bulk, Troxler said: "One factor behind my acquirement of this amazing collection was the transfer of one working DJ to another; and the fact that I will be presenting to people around the world as they were intended to be heard."
The majority of the records were acquired during Haslam's time as resident DJ at legendary Manchester club, The Hacienda. On the purchase, he said: “They'll give pleasure to Seth's audiences, just as they gave pleasure to me and the audiences I played them too. I'll miss them but they've gone to a great home.
"My thirty years of DJing is in this collection, including all the records I played on the four hundred occasions I played at the Hacienda in the 1980s, beginning with funk and soul and electro and Factory Records stuff, and on through industrial and alternative music and into the early acid tunes and the house music revolution. And then the 1990s too, bleepy stuff, disco, the euphoric floorfillers, and the wild and weird records I loved and wanted to share with dancefloors from Manchester to Paris and Berlin to New York I had some tempting offers, but keeping the collection together was an important thing for me."
We look forward to hearing the records in the near future.
