A soul 45s special.
In VF Live, DJs take you inside their homes, record stores, and studios for intimate sets and mixes.
London DJ Scarlett O’Malley returns for her monthly VF Live residency with a soul 45s special – spanning northern soul, crossover, r’n’b, and sweet soul.
“This set is round two of my soul 45s special, taking in traditional soul alongside lots of Northern Soul, some sweet slow ones, and quite a bit of Jackie Wilson. He’s my favourite artist of all-time, and I am currently working on a documentary about him. I love listening to these records that I have had for years, and reminding myself of why I am doing what I am doing. This is also the first genre of music I really began to study academically and learn the history about so it is more than just records for me.”
I start this show with my most listened to track of 2021 – Dee Edwards’ ‘I Can Deal With That’ – and I am still not tired of listening to it, so so so good!
