What would you rather have on vinyl?Started 9 years ago by Thes One / toggle topic info
I'd buy it, and pay a lot. Love to see whatever you have to offer.
EDIT: ...in whatever format too. I'd rather have a 4 LP set, like you initially said, but if I get a CD, I won't be pissed or anything. And if you offer both, I'm buying both.
I think anybody here would be willing to drop good money for anything you do Thes, I'm just worried about those part time PUTS fans because at the end we all want you to get paid.
CD is also prefferred over record, to reiterate not everyone has a turn table but who dosen't own a PC with a CD drive?
I'd love to see 10 years of making beats as a 4xLP, and ill pay $100+ for it, easy. If it is easier/cheaper to make it a CD release first, then vinyl short after, then so be it. We don't want this to be too tough on the budget Thes
I'd still prefer to see a seven inch box set, something akin to the Atlantic 45 series or the Ultimate Breaks and Beats box set. But with really sturdy packaging. So basically an expensive $100+ limited run for those with the cash (I'd buy probably buy 2 copies, one for me and one for my brother) and a CD/Digitlal version that everybody could afford.
A 7" box set might also be a bit cheaper to produce and also easier to send through the post too. Although I have no idea how much it there's much cost difference between cutting 7"'s or LP's. I know that with hardcover books and paperbacks there's only about $1 difference in production costs.
I'd shell out for that type of deal. Even if it was just a cardboard box w/ 4 separate vinyl jackets (see what Stones Throw did with the Dam Funk 5LP set, they sold it for $50).
I'd also like the remix of The Fun (52:58 on Funner Than Leather). I also second the DJ Day remix of Step Bacc.
Yeah, I would definetely buy a CD release of it, but vinyl just wouldn't work right now. I'm only 16 and my parents don't own (but do want, so there is some hope) a turntable. When I'm older and have my own cash, I'll definetely have a turntable, and then I'll be huntin for all you guys' vinyl stuff, but for now I've gotta settle with CDs, so if you could put the unreleased stuff on CD's I'd def buy and appreciate it.
So anyone else gonna be putting off buying anything till may? holidays? weddings? haha. watch the overdraft go up and get CARRIED AWAY (pun intended. lol) buying all this dope sh!t. lmao.
respect thes, i have no idea how tough it is 4ya ATM bt hope ur having FUN.
Takin' two ova' here.
+1 for the CD, i'd pay up for that. Vinyl is an amazing prospect but I just can't afford to be gettin back into buying wax. Picking up the ltd edition PUTS box would tip me over the edge and before I know it i'll have spent a couple of grand on ebay...

yea...that can happen...and pry would happen
to be honest after really messing up and putting my email address rather than my home address on this site for the xmas treat (yes i am kicking myself) i'd be up for dropping whatever it takes to get my hands on that sweet vinyl boxset....after 33years i owe myself a treat. Bring it on
Man Thes you really are a creator of gems. Not only your dedication to music, but your home, your library, carried away design etc.
I would no doubt buy a 6lp set of instrumentals, music to me is a very important part of my life, and PUTS/thes beats/DubK stuff has always been a pleasure to listen to.
I just recently invested about $1500 in a sound system (im only 19, a college student, used to work 6 days a week, got laid off and now i just found an even better job that im beginning at the end of march :p ).
I would most likely go and buy a vinyl player for this set as well and hook it up to my system plus im long overdue for one, i have a ton of vinyl in my room but its just for decoration right now haha
all of these ideas are really amazing and the effort and will you have to put into these projects is very appreciated by all of us.
a even more limited CD version would also probably be a good idea as well for the fans who cant get ahold of vinyl players or cant dish out $50+
Keep us updated on this!
I think we may have come to a compromise on the vinyl vs. CD as Thes was telling us fans in Chicago last night. He wants to release the vinyl in the collector's crate or whatever but also include a USB stick/drive with all the instrumentals in .wav form. It's just an idea he shot out to us to see how it sounded. Satisfies both sides.

I want that vinyl, but vinyl for me instantly means that I have to rip it so I can get it on my ipod so I can bang it in the car and at work and whatnot. So the USB flash drive is a perfect idea.
Thes One said: So i have been busting my ass trying to organize this live project but everyone's schedules are all f--ed up and communication has been lackluster. Now this isn't to say it won't happen, but timing might not be ideal right now.
That said, as part of the store launch i wanted to have a few projects available and this was one of them. If i can't get it done, or it looks like the art will have to be compromised to hit the schedule, would you be interested in
4xVinyl - Thes One presents "The Instrumentals" 10 years of making beats
A selection of instrumentals from 10 years of commercial releases that haven't ever seen the light of day. Roughly 60 classic instrumentals.
Limited pressing of 200 units in commemorative wood case with photo booklet
That's a fantastic idea and I for one would buy and use that material.
