Ethiopian psych, Turkish funk, UK boogie and more.
With quarantines and lockdowns due to the Coronavirus pandemic ongoing around the world, artists are finding new ways to connect with people worldwide.
In VF Live, our favourite collectors take you inside their homes and record shops for intimate selects and mixes.
For Sarah Evans’ second set, the radio present and producer traverses from Ethiopian psych to Turkish funk, UK boogie and beyond.
Watch and listen to Sarah’s set above, find out more about it and check out the tracklist below.
My set is being recorded at Soul Proprietors – a specialist record shop in Brixton, London, that everyone should check out when they can.
I’m using two Technics 1210s and a Vestax PMC 05pro mixer, with a 3.5mm stereo jack plug to 2 RCA Phono Plugs running from the mixer output into my 2004 MacBook and recording line in on QuickTime. The microphone is a late ’60s/’70s RESLOSOUND LTD Ribbon microphone 30/50 ohms (made in England).
Each set so far has been comprised of new and old records that I’ve acquired from over a decade. My collection consists of funk, disco, jazz, house, highlife, afrobeat, techno, electro, psychedelic and hip-hop.
I have a two hour radio show coming up on Tuesday 5th May at 3pm BST.’
