Apparently, 45’s are in again. Not that we ever stopped collecting them. But the amount of DJ’s and collectors instagramming pics of their new 7” discoveries has skyrocketed in the last few years. Not to mention the countless 45-only parties popping up all over the world.
We kick off our 3rd annual ode to the 7” with a bang. A banger, to be precise. The Action 13’s “More Bread to the People” is hands down one of my most prized 45’s. Small-hole Nigerian psychedelic funkiness at it’s finest. Kae follows suit with Italian combo Duke of Burlington’s classic “Flash”. And Serious wraps up our first round with Jean-Pierre Massiera’s rare Canadian-only Sex Convention 45.
I was fortunate enough to grab a copy of Darondo’s “Didn’t I” from record mecca Groove Merchant during my stay in San Francisco earlier this year. We all know it’s basically some fake Al Green shit, but goddamn. It’s a beautiful record. Prince Jazzbo’s “Crabwalking” is a Kaewonder selection from the land where the 7” is king: Jamaica. And DJ Serious ends things off with a sweet soul special from the Gibson Brothers band.
The 45 may be back. But we’re not hopping on the bandwagon. If anything, we were already driving it.

    getting hella sick of all these old-school DJs who sold off their vinyl a few years back only to be turning into 45 junkies in 2012. finally realizing they sold their culture out and trying to reclaim that “the reason why i even got into this shit in the first place” feeling again. biters. good luck!@#$%!!! secret message for the heads (who already know this): music is what matters, not the (trendy ass) format!@#$%!!! next topic… cassettes.
