Once again it’s on!
I’m not kidding when I say this is my favorite ongoing party: The 45 Sessions that happen every third Saturday at the Layover in Oakland. It just reminds me of what’s fun about DJing: Anything goes as far as selection is concerned (as long as it’s on a 45, of course), and the crowd at this cool little spot is totally down to boogie to whatever you throw at ’em. Funk, disco, rock, breaks, classic, unknown, whatever–if it’s good, it’s good. Plus, in this Serato age, it really is nice to put all the bells and whistles aside and just spin real records. (And of course there’s the show-and-prove aspect: If you don’t have a good collection and good skills, you can’t hang.) I know I’m pulling out some special gems for this outing, and I’m betting the homie Platurn is as well. It’s gonna be just Platurn and me rocking the decks all night long, so you know you need to bust out your dancing shoes and get ready for some quality DJing! Here is the Facebook event page with all the details, but for those who would rather not deal with the evil that is Facebook, here’s the rundown:
Saturday, September 18
The Layover (1517 Franklin St. Oakland)
The 45 Session: DJ Platurn and DJ Enki spin funk, disco, hip-hop, rock, breaks, boogie, and all sorts of great tunes on nothing but 45s
