His encyclopedic knowledge of many strands of music comes from years hunched over record bins at fairs, shops and flea markets. In record nerd circles, he's long been admired as someone who's able to stay one step ahead of the pack. But Tiller, who comes from London and is now based in Berlin, distances himself from the unhealthily obsessive aspects of digging culture. Speaking to Stamp The Wax earlier this year, he described 2017 as a "strange time" for digging, taking aim at people who use social media to brag about their rare records. "Anyone with a load of money and an unhealthy amount of time to spend on the internet can have all the hot records," he said. "But then they miss all the great 1 euro, 5 euro or even 10 euro records you can discover in a record store and it's just not about music any more but status."
