Eric Pye is, in the words of his Instagram profile, “just some guy spinning records in his basement.” And what a basement! Real wood panelling, avocado shag carpet, and décor fitting of a growing vintage audio and vinyl collection. A nomad most of his life with international stints including South Africa, Japan, and the UK, he’s happy now to be laying down roots, making a home, and creating a little bit of musical heaven, shared daily at @AudioLoveYYC. Four years ago he began down the slippery slope of vintage audio, and two years later rediscovered vinyl (after a quarter century digital-only). He loves all things Jazz, and has recently become fixated with Japanese Jazz, and some day opening his own Jazz Kissa.
