Music has always been on the forefront of Estefano-the-Recordman’s (eTRm) life. Growing up in the Bronx, New York during the turbulent 70’s, soul, Latin, gospel and jazz were common grooves listened to by his mother and his eldest brother who introduced him to funk, disco and 70s soul. At a young age music provided a universal connection to people and culture which eTRm actively explored when sent to the corner store to buy the latest 45s for his mother. Later in life music provided spiritual pleasure and opportunities for entrepreneurship.

eTRm bought his first record at the tender age of 9, Hot Pants by James Brown launching a life of collecting spanning nearly 40 years. Since purchasing Hot Pants eTRm amassed a personal collection of over 30,000 albums, 12,000 12-inch singles and over 5000 7-inch vinyl recordings of every genre imaginable—from movie soundtracks, folk music, historical recordings, jazz to opera, gospel, rock, funk, disco, house, soul, r&b, hip hop, reggae, spoken word, blaxploitation, original Broadway productions and so much more.

eTRm’s collection and broad knowledge of music gave birth to “The Recordman” persona in the 80s when deejay and producers constantly asked for records. He had already amassed an impressive collection by this time and decided to sell excess records at home; leading to listening sessions with deejays and producers who today are among the best in the world. Back then, eTRm was the man with all the records and if he didn’t have it he would find it regardless of the request—this remains to be true today.

In the 90s, eTRm opened B-Side Music in Brooklyn, New York and it became the deejay/producer premier record collector shop with an international clientele.  During that period producers including Eric B, Mr. Cee, Biz Markie, Sting International, Bobby Konders, Pete Rock, Chubb Rock and Freedom Williams were regular customers. Many Brooklyn-based rappers and producers made a home at B-Side to find rare grooves and beats for new tracks.

Since then private collectors, deejays and producers access eTRm’s knowledge and collection via private listening sessions and record shows. Plans are being made to re-open a new store in Harlem, New York in 2013. You can check out for all your vinyl needs.

You can also listen to eTRm spin his special brand of soul, funk, jazz, disco, rare grooves, reggae, gospel, hip hop, sound tracks, rock and so much more on his weekly radio show, the Music Sanctuary every Tuesday, 11p – 1a, EST on DHP Radio,

eTRm’s love and passion for music has recently translated to music production—B-Side Music Studio NYC–where he is shaping a unique take on global dance music. A new EP is expected for release in early 2013.
