Mixcloud are pleased to announce our involvement with 24 Hours of Vinyl!

Next Event: 24 Hours Of Vinyl #10 – PARIS April 26 & 27th
Live on www.24hoursofvinyl.com

Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1474464722783594/

As a bunch of self confessed vinyl junkies, we couldn’t be happier to support the day long non-profit event with a crowd of awesome DJs relaying vinyl only records. The event started out in 2011 by the folks over at Music is My Sanctuary, with the event moving from city to city and also being broadcast online for those who can’t make it in person.

So far the likes of Kid Koala, Jacques Greene, Rahaan, Amir, Moonstarr, Eddie C, Lexis, Ohmega Watts, Poirier and more have lent a hand to muck in, to work towards the common goal of sharing and discovering awesome music.

Don’t just take our word for it, check out their demo reel…

Straight from the play box..

In the spirit of Mixcloud community, we wanted to position the looking glass over Kieran Lockyear and his project ‘Straight from the play box’, which has brought together DJs from all over the world to create a virtual festival of vinyl 45s shared from their own collections.

There are alot of great djs and collectors world wide who have some very rare (original) Soul/Funk 45s in there collection that you cant hear unless you happen to go to an event… so I asked a couple of djs if they would send me a mix of just ten 45s from there play box and they were kind enough to oblige, so I asked a few more, were at 60+ now and still more to come” Kieran.

The series has gained notoriety across the world as more and more DJs get involved and is quite possibly one of the best selections of soul & funk vinyls on the net today.
