Living Live: I Love Vinyl: Interview & DJ Session



Clocktower Radio's Jeannie Hopper hosts the I Love Vinyl crew at Red Bull Studios New York as part of our summer long 2014 Living Live streamcast and viewing party produced in partnership with artist Peter Coffin. The group shares from their vast musical collection and discusses new media radio innovation.

Listener's Note: This program is posted in three parts: the interview, and then two extended DJ sets. You can use the media player to jump between these sections.

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.
