The Red Bull Music Academy and Discogs have joined forces to create Vinylmarket Watch a tongue-and-cheek stock exchange for vinyl genre prices across 250 of the most prized records from each genre.
The website is described as a “collaborative ongoing experiment between Red Bull Music Academy and Discogs.
“The project looks at a variety of genres within the Discogs style explorer and analyzes price movements on a daily basis. The prices are calculated by looking at the top 250 most wanted records within selected genres, then perfoming daily analysis on the median price of sold items for each of those releases. Please note, these prices are not fully representative of genres as a whole.
“Also note, as passionate music buyers ourselves, this site most definitely does not endorse speculative vinyl collector culture. This site should be used for entertainment and general data purposes only.”
Sound Pellegrino’s Teki Latex is in on the joke too as a pseudo presenter for Vinyl Marketwatch’s news program.
