I Love Vinyl: Erika Elliot

SummerStage’s longest standing curator in its 30 year history, Erika Elliott, is in the studio with the I Love Vinyl crew to play some vinyl from her personal collection and a chat for October’s Second Sundays in-studio sessions. Elliot has worked with the City Parks Foundation since 2004, and was named Artistic Director in 2010, during the festival’s 25th Anniversary season when the series expanded its brand to include CityParks Concerts. Landmark bookings in her tenure include M.I.A, Vampire Weekend, Feist, Seu Jorge, Blood Orange, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, St. Vincent, Esperanza Spaulding, Alabama Shakes, Miguel, The xx, Gary Clark Jr. and Janelle Monae to name a few. Prior to City Parks Foundation, Elliott was the Talent Buyer at Sounds of Brazil (S.O.B’s) club.

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


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.
