Afrika Bambaataa’s record collection

Putting together a list of things to try to see next weekend in NYC and came across this Artforum piece on Afrika Bambaataa’s record collection at Gavin Brown. En route to Cornell University’s Hip Hop Collection, where it is being donated this fall, the collection is open to the public like an archeological dig, with guest DJs making selections and crowd sourced alphabetization. It's open Monday to Friday from noon to 5pm until August 10th.

Here's Bambaataa’s Metal, a Gary Numan cover with some Debbie Harry thrown in for good measure:
