Second Sundays July 2015: I Love Vinyl



Boogie down to excellent funky beats presented by Ben Goldfarb (AKA DJ Scribe) and Shawn Dub of I Love Vinyl, recorded at Pioneer Works as part of the July 12th, 2015 Second Sundays open house events. Bonus: the duo discusses I Love Vinyl's place in the evolving Manhattan and Brooklyn cultural scenes.

I Love Vinyl was founded in the summer of 2009 by six 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 include DJ Scribe, Amir Abdullah, Jon Oliver, OP!, and Shawn Dub. The organic history of this vinyl loving crew revolves around their fabulous grassroots parties and their innovations in radio using Mixcloud in a terrestrial-influenced, free-form style. For their shows, which have spread from Brooklyn to Amsterdam, they invite taste-makers including seasoned DJ's, crate diggers, musicians, and artists who share a passion for spinning. They are champions of vinyl in the digital age.

Clocktower Exhibits is home to interviews with and performances by its exhibitions' participating artists and curators over these many years.

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.
