Top 10 DJ Charts January – OG45ers

We’ve been having a lot of fun seeing what our fellow DJ’s across the globe have been working into their sets and what records are becoming staples in their scene. Our next guests flying in from across the pond representing the UK’s Sunshine Coast and setting up dance floors is the duo of The Original Forty Fivers. Having formed two years ago and focusing on the art of spinning 45’s, the pair have DJ’ed across the South East of the UK in Brighton, Lewes, Eastbourne and Hastings at cafes, bars, restaurants, art galleries and festivals playing a variety of reggae, funk, soul, Latin, hip hop, re-edits, cool covers and mash-ups. When not in the mix standing in the booth, you can catch their online mixes that they put out a regular basis and in particular 25ThC’s 7×7 series which feature seven 7″ singles in a particular genre.
