Catching up with Good Music Vinyl Market’s Boas

Werkplaats

Good Music Vinyl Market is back again in Werkplaats this Sunday. It’s the last edition under our roof before it heads outside for the summer. Boas Hopma is the initiator of this event. He’s organizing the vinyl market for quite some time already at our place, so it was time for a chat.

When did your love for vinyl begin?
It all started in the club. I was always really impressed when dj’s were playing vinyl. So when I was 24 years old, my brother in law got me an old school record player (Lenco) and from that moment I was addicted and started to collect records. One year later I bought myself two turntables.

What was the first record you ever bought?
Definitely a record from the 60’s. I don’t know exactly which one, but probably J.J. Cale, Lou Reed or the Beatles.

What’s your most precious vinyl record?
All of them! I’m a collector, so every vinyl I buy is special to me.

Why do you think vinyl is on such big revival?
You could compare it with vintage stuff, it’s also a big business. Vinyl is like an oldtimer, it looks and it sounds nice. Every vinyl has a story and the fact you can hold a record in your hand, makes music more interesting than when you play it digital. It’s a piece of art.

What are you proud of when it comes to Good Music Vinyl Market?
The fact that I make a lot of people happy. And the fact that there are a lot of cool sellers attending the market every edition.

What are your future plans with GMVM?
Keep on rollin’.

Any latest treasures you found?
Hell yeah!
