We are big big fans of Havana meets Kingston and normally play at least one of their tracks during our DJ sets. Last week 25ThC had the privilege of seeing them live at the amazing Albert Hall in London. It was atmospheric, unique and totally spellbinding to watch these super talented musicians perform live. Better yet you can now relive the gig on the BBC iPlayer. Don’t snooze as this won’t be available for long.
Following last years successful private view event – we were asked back to play at the Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne for the launch party of the Sussex Open 2018. With great art from local artists, delicious Italian food from Amare Street Food, a late bar and good vibes all round we had a brilliant time.
25ThC caught up with Smoove and Turrell during their current tour to discuss 45s, their stunning new album Mount Pleasant and more.
This time around 25ThC has dug deep in his crates to produce an all 45s 7″ vinyl heavy Funk mix. Featuring tracks from Tolbert Family Singers, Osaka Monaural, Skull Snaps, Sweet Linda Divine, Ikebe Shakedown, The Allergies, and Pearl Dowell. First played on the Premium Blend Show on Hailsham FM.
Our good friends and fellow hip hop lovers Get It Together have just released their 4 Elements Documentary. A film about the love of Hip Hop, made for the love of hip hop.
It features footage from The 4 Elements Hip Hop Exhibition in Worthing and a series of insightful interviews with DJ Format, Remark, Haynesy, Dan Flanagan and more. It also documents the emerging and vibrant Hip-Hop scene in Worthing accompanied by a great soundtrack.
25ThC is back with the next instalment of his 7×7 mix series. This time he has selected some classic and new dubs featuring Lee Scratch Perry, Chronic, Hollie Cook, Protoje and more. It ends on one of our favourite record store day releases – Prince Fatty – Sunshine featuring Omar and Fatlip.
The mix was played exclusively first on the Premium Blend Radio Show on 15 May 2018.
We love our collection of 45s adaptors and as we play just 45s many of which are dinked records this means they are a vital tool of our trade. 45 Live have put together a handy guide to some of the best adaptors out there. We love our Syd Def Jan adaptors so can attest to how good these are.
