Big up! How you guys doing? Everything irie?

First of all, sorry for the bad english, I'm from Portugal and...well it's not my first language.
I'm planning to start a small soundsystem with some friends. Here's the idea: we want to spin some records (mostly dub...Iration Steppas, Jah Cure, King Shiloh and stuff like that...do you guys know a good web site were I can buy this kind of vinyl records?) and have a friend singing over the music being played. But the thing is that I want to have effects (like reverb, delay...and maybe phaser...applyed in the same channel) applyed to the voice. For that I was thinking in buying some cheap (but nice) mixing table, that could alow me to mix the records (on different channels and apply the effects on the voice. I had a look to the BEHRINGER products. But well...what's you advice?

Thanks in advance!

Blessings from Portugal!

- i never bought vinyl online - so can't help with that. i think it is necessary to listen to the records before buying them anyway. something you can do in typical vinyl shops aimed at djs.
(at least in europe)

- about the mixer: don't forget that you need a special phono preamp for turntables. also you want to be able to listen to one record while the other is being played on the sound system. that's why there is a market for dj-mixers. i see that behringer has also a line of dj-mixers.
this one for 265Euro even has the effects you want:

To me it looks like a copy of the very popular pioneer mixer djm500 for ca. 700Euro:
