The 45 Sessions with DJ Z-Trip (Thursday, Nov. 10)

Z-Trip at the 45 Sessions in Oakland

This right here is something incredible. We’ve got the one and only DJ Z-Trip coming to the 45 Sessions at the Uptown in Oakland on November 10. It’s been a minute since anybody has seen Z-Trip do an all-45s set, but we’ve got him coming to throw down a special treat in a slightly smaller club setting so you can really get the vibe. We’re getting a special opening set from local legend DJ Doc Fu, the homie DJ Platurn and I will be rocking the set, and we’ll have a whole separate lounge area with vendors, giveaways, and sounds courtesy of DJ Delgado and DJ Saurus. But the space is limited, and tickets are already flying out the door! Visit djztrip45sessions.eventbrite.com for presales, and be quick about it!

December 5: DJ Jazzy Jeff, Shortkut, Scratch Bastid, and the 45 Sessions crew!

DJ Jazzy Jeff Shortkut Scratch Bastid 45 Sessions

This right here is some serious business. On December 5, the world famous DJ Jazzy Jeff is playing at Mighty in SF. That alone is a great thing, but check out who’s playing with him: Shortkut and Scratch Bastid. That’s a ridiculous amount of talent in just three guys. And then, we’ve got the 45 Sessions crew rocking the side room all night. You can’t possibly go wrong!

Well, there’s one way you can go wrong: Not going to this jam! And if you want to go, you’re definitely going to want to cop some presale tickets. Get ’em right here while they’re hot!

Winter Sessions flyer

This is serious business right here. For the Winter Sessions, we’ve got two of the heaviest of heavyweights coming to town: Diamond D, who is by far one of the best 45 spinners in the world (seriously, last time we had him out, he blew my mind), and 45 King, whose name speaks for itself. And these guys are gonna rock 45s for 3 full hours for y’all. That’s on top of goodness from your 45 Sessions residents. Don’t sleep! Cop presale tickets while you still can!

Mobile Mondays NYC 9/29

I’ve been rocking little records at the 45 Sessions for years now, but oddly enough, I’ve never gone to the east, my brother, to the east to rock little records at Mobile Mondays, NYC’s premier all-45s party. Well, finally that situation is being rectified. Monday the 29th, it’s on! The 45 Sessions invades Mobile Mondays as DJ Platurn and I join Natasha Diggs and the MM crew to throw down. NY peoples, come party with us!

Written by DJ Enki on December 16, 2013 – 12:54 am -

Can you believe we’re already on the 45th installment of the 45 Sessions? Amazing but true. And what a great party it’s been–great crowds, great guests, great fun. So of course we’re gonna go big for #45 and bring in the capos of other 45s parties: Danny Holloway of LA’s Blazing 45s, and Natasha Diggs, the visionary behind NYC’s Mobile Mondays (and who you should also remember from the Valentine’s Day edition of the 45 Sessions last year). Gonna be big things with little records–you know we’ll turn it out right. So come celebrate with us on Friday the 20th!

OK, so we went a little off-calendar with this one due to SXSW, but we’re making up for it by going big! As the best damn party in the East Bay relocates to the brand-new Legionnaire Saloon (2272 Telegraph Ave. in Oakland, corner of Telegraph and Grand), we’re bringing a lot of our friends to the kick-off party. Besides your residents, DJ Platurn, E Da Boss, and DJ Enki, we’ve got Mr. E, Proof, Rascue, J-Boogie, and Centipede putting it down. So don’t miss out.

Programming note: Yes, this is the 4th Friday of the month, but after this installment, the 45 Sessions goes back to happening on the 3rd Friday of the month. Got it? Good. See you there!
