On a recent visit to Amoeba Hollywood, Scuba dug up some great vinyl in our dance section. He manages to find a copy of the first 12 inch he bought in 1995, Dave Clarke's Red 3, and shares a funny story of interacting with Dave Clarke on Twitter. He follows with Jazzanova's "That Night" 12 inch and reminisces about using the song during his UK Garage DJ sets. From techno to freestyle to new wave, Scuba finds some great pieces of vinyl. Watch the full episode below to see the rest of his picks.
