I Love Vinyl with Grandwizzard Theodore



Clocktower Radio joined in the December 2014 Pioneer Works open house festivities by contributing to the day's performance roster with hip hop DJ legend Grandwizzard Theodore and the I Love Vinyl crew DJ'ing live in our studios with Theodore as their special guest. This program documents that session.

Grandwizzard Theodore is a legendary hip hop DJ and widely credited as the inventor of scratching and needle drop techniques. Awarded the title “Grandwizzard” by his DJ peers, Theodore was featured in the Scratch documentary and the motion picture Wild Style, as a character and contributor to the film’s soundtrack. In addition to his current passion teaching at the Scratch Academy, he continues to hold down spots across the city and work on albums, such as Hip Hop Headz.

I Love Vinyl was founded in the Summer of 2009 by Ben Goldfarb aka DJ Scribe and five other seasoned DJs hailing from NYC, Chicago, Baltimore, and beyond. With over 100 years of spinning, and over 100,000 records between them, the I Love Vinyl all-stars now include DJ Scribe, Amir Abdullah, Jon Oliver, OP!, and Shawn Dub. The organic history of this vinyl-loving crew revolves around their underground Brooklyn dance party and their forays in radio as early users of Mixcloud as a platform for their free-form style. For their decidedly un-mixed radio show, they invite guest vinyl selectors, from seasoned DJ's and collectors to musicians and visual artists, as much for the records they bring as for the stories they have to tell about them.

I Love Vinyl

RADIO SERIES

I Love Vinyl is a collective of world-class djs and record collectors based in New York City who are dedicated to the preservation and promotion of authentic vinyl dance music djing and club culture. For their decidedly un-mixed radio show, they invite guest vinyl selectors from seasoned DJ’s and collectors to musicians and non-musical artists, not only for the records but for the stories that accompany them. The group was founded in 2009 by NYC-native Ben Goldfarb, aka DJ Scribe, with a veritable Dream Team of resident vinyl romantics, hailing from NYC, Chicago, Baltimore, and beyond. They present legendary monthly parties in Brooklyn (with a sister party in Amsterdam), collaborate with arts and cultural institutions and organizations, design and implement educational programs, and engage in pro bono work with social causes organizations. The current all-star lineup, with a brain-numbing 100+ years of combined dj experience, and 100K+ records between them, consists of Amir Abdullah, OP!, Jon Oliver, Shawn Dub and Scribe.
