Ben Goldfarb aka DJ Scribe has written a touching note to go along with a crowdsourcing campaign for NYC industry legend Judy Russell.
If you’ve been around house music in America, there’s a pretty good chance that Judy Russell is responsible for a fair amount of your record collection, either selling it (at Vinylmania in the ’80s), signing it (at legendary NYC golden age label Nu Groove) or, most recently, selling the records you love to the people who sold them to you via the now defunct Downtown161.
Ben has written the story from there:
The fundraiser is intended, “in an ideal world,” to “provide seed money for her to get herself situated in a new apartment and find a new job. After all that she has given to us and to this culture, I felt like it was the least I could do. Your generous donations, words of encouragement, and job tips are all appreciated.”
