“I first met Alex in a hotel in upstate New York. I was fascinated by his encyclopedic knowledge spanning every genre and his relentless passion for collecting vinyl. I decided I wanted to dive deep into the story of his journey and his curation process for the Coachella Music Festival, so I proposed joining him on his next record-collecting trip. Alex and others in his profession have a contagious passion that immediately struck me as a story worth sharing. Whether you’re a vinyl fan now, have been in the past, or will be in the future, this road trip will bring you back to the vinyl age,” – Life is my Movie CEO and founder Vincent Vittorio with Deadline.
