Greetings all.
Just a quick note to say that the Asbury Park 45 Sessions were once again banging, the perfect accompaniment to a warm summer night. I joined DJ Prestige, DJ Bluewater, M-Fasis, DJ Prime Mundo and special guest selector Pat James Longo for an evening of funk, soul, disco, latin and all manner of grooves.
There were several heavy sets, and Mr Longo brought the heat, dropping a number of incredible 45s, including one by Stark Reality that moved right to the top of my want list.
We also managed to buy and trade some cool vinyl amongst ourselves, including a couple of new residents for my record box (which I am digitizing as I type this).
Hopefully we’ll be doing this again in a couple of months, and as I always say, if you’re in the area, you simply must drop by.
