45 Live returns to the Shortstop for our 3rd edition in Los Angeles!

Angel City Records Super Soul Session
Mark Morales
DJ Bywell
Andy Cobb
Farley Gardner

Saturday 23rd July
1455 Sunset Blvd
Los Angeles
CA 90026
Entry is free before 10pm, $5 after

45 Live is proud to present a guest session takeover by one of LA's hardest working labels bringing the sound of then bang up to date with the now!

Your DJ's for the Angel City Records Super Soul review, features native Angelino and the bossman of the whole shabang, Mr Mark Morales. Mark's been a dedicated and hard working collector of tough reggae and hard-to-find original soul 45's for years, and is at the forefront of the LA underground scene. DJ Bywell is a born and bred Leeds UK man, and brings his wealth of knowledge and envious collection to the table. His passion for rare soul goes as far back as regular visits to the Wigan Casino, so believe it when we say, his typical set is a proper nostalgia trip! Andy Cobb is a returning 45 Live DJ, and straddles the musical fence between hard funk and raw soul, bringing that injection of super dynamite dance infused tunes.

Expect nothing but the heat! And Mr Farley Gardner is a resident DJ for the Angel City Soul Club, holding it down for the label that brings such artists as Jackie Mendez, Xavier Lynch Xiantoni Ari, and a slew of reggaeton acts to towns near you. Check out their schedule of releases as well as plans of various tours winding through 2016 and 2017. Original 45 rpm pressings. All the time. Primo....like that.

45 Live is back in Los Angeles!

Eli 'Paperboy' Reed
Greg Belson
Pete Isaac
Dan Walters

Saturday 23rd April
1455 Sunset Blvd
Los Angeles
CA 90026
Entry is free before 10pm, $5 after

After the huge success of the inaugural night of 45 Live on Sunset Blvd in beautiful Los Angeles, the crew are at it again with an outstanding line-up of 7” vinyl hoarders, spinners and players.

We’re back at the Shortstop, with a hard hitting cast…..hailing from Boston Massachusetts and currently promoting his stone cold killer new LP ‘My way home’, is Mr Eli ‘Paperboy’ Reed. As a DJ, Eli specializes in hard hitting soul and sixties funk, particularly from the town he calls home on the East Coast….not only is he one of the best vocal frontmen in the business, but he can slay a turntable too.

Flying in from the UK to get down with the LA crowd is 45 Live co-CEO, Pete Isaac…..he’s been a back bone of the funk, soul and jazz scenes in the UK for well over 20 years, with his wonderfully branded Jelly Jazz promotions. Gigs that have seen him work alongside the cream of the crop from Quantic, to Sharon Jones and the Dapkings.

Also making the trek from Brighton UK, Dan Walters from the Over Easy DJ’s clique, will be rollin’ out the selections and keepin’ the floor flowing

Returning resident, host of the 45 Live and The Divine Chord Radio Show’s Greg Belson, will be packing the hard hitting rarities you might not have heard before. Searing hot cuts aimed to heat up the dancefloor….from unknown cover versions to crunchin’ drumbreak business. We mean nasty.

Stiff drinks, great specials, hard tunes.

Claim your space on the floor.

We’re gonna go to work!
