  • Radio HOT PACIFIC: Shiro Schwarz

  • HOT PACIFIC::: Jonny Nash, Lovefingers 11/13

    TOP TIER Quality Sounds This Thursday in Venice....


    Jonny Nash 
    "began Djing and producing when living in Japan as part of Tokyo’s Discossession collective, where he recorded on Crue-L records alongside artists such as Cornelius and Love Tambourines. Promoting one of the first “leftfield disco” parties in Japan he Dj’ed with Danny Wang, Todd Terje, Prins Thomas and many more over a three year period..."


    "Andrew Hogge—whom you might know better as Lovefingers—is a member of this rare breed. the few rulers of the taste-making craft who outlast the hype and sit respectfully amongst their crate-digging peers. "
