With Drop The Needle’s First Birthday approaching this Friday, we asked DTN residents Sanjay and Milan to pick their highlights from the last year…
Milan: I remember having so much fun at our last party that I forgot about my record bag at the end of the night and had trace my steps back the next day, including a visit to the Ali Baba kebab shop – fortunately my bag was still behind the decks at Superstore!
Sanjay: One of my highlights was when we had Rory Phillips play a special 7” only post-punk set for our record store day party!
Milan: It’s always a nice sign when you start to recognise the regulars who come to many of the parties – nice to know the quality of music is consistent and people enjoy coming back. It’s always nice when Kenny Campbell comes down to party with us!
Sanjay: It was also amazing sharing the bill with our heroes Optimo Espacio this year. I also remember that night having to lend them my own turntables as the pitch on theirs had broken. Having my own turntables christened by JD Twitch and JG Wilkes was a bit special for me.
Sanjay & Milan: Our roadblock DTN launch party last year was pretty insane! I have still never seen a queue there bigger than it was that night! We have invited Simon Rigg who headlined our launch party back to play our 1st birthday! Don’t miss it this Friday!
