Collecting For 27 Years

 

Known by my peers as DJ Piu Robson, everyone knows that I have an intense passion and love for great music.  I remembers my taste initially being developed from the age of 10, by the music played in my family home.  My family played  everything from the Roberto Carlos to the Beatles, however, my first vinyl purchase was in 1991 called “ACID HOUSE”.  Attending and graduating from the Free University of Musica Tom Jobim, my musical taste continues to expand even further.

I have been a collector’s vinyl for 27 years now and have a very extensive collection reaching roughly 1,000 records.  Even though, I own a lot of music,  my love of digging for new music hasn’t stop, so my collection continues to increase. Since 2015, I have performed at Virada Cultural de São Paulo, Hip Hop Month and played in Curitiba, Recife, Fortaleza, Juiz de Fora and Campinas.

Ultimately, I collect vinyl because I realize how happy music makes people feel when I’m behind the turntables. I also enjoy the smiles I get when I share my musical experience on various projects such as DJ Workshops or being a producer on music productions.

My name is Maurice Edwards and I’m an avid vinyl collector, music historian and novice DJ. My music background consist of 20 years of music retail and promotion and independent artist consulting. I had the fortune of working for two of the largest music retail outlets; Tower Records and Virgin Megastore. After my tenure with major record stores in 2004, I founded a web-based self-funded start-up company called Evolution of Media (EOM) which focused on the needs of independent and major artists in the music industry. Evolution of Media (EOM) grew from 27 unique visitors to over 50,000 unique visitors per month within the first year of going live. What set EOM apart from other competitors was that we limiting site reviews and recommendations to only outstanding emerging artists and major artist that were not visible within the mainstream. Besides working with independent artist from around the globe I established working relationships with the promotion departments of Sony, Interscope and Shanachie records assisting them with extra promotion for artist such as; Al Jarreau, Sky Edwards (Morcheeba), Miki Howard, Vesta Williams, Phil Perry and many more.
