Scaramanga Silk: Anonymous Breakbeat Producer's debut record sells f or £30,000
An obscure single by an unknown UK breakbeat DJ has fetched a record-breaking £30,000 on the music collectors' website Discogs.
A copy of Scaramanga Silk's Choose Your Weapon was sold to an anonymous bidder for $41,095 (£30,079) in December, it was announced this week.
The 12-inch single, released in 2008, has now overtaken a rare copy of Prince's Black Album - which fetched $27,500 (£20,128) in 2018 - as the site's biggest sale. An early pressing of The Beatles' Love Me Do, on which Paul McCartney's name is misspelled, takes third place having been sold for $15,410 (£11,279) the year before.
