➡ Shout out to those that made it down to the last party with Job Sifre – the recording of that party sounds absolutely amazing so hopefully we can do something with it through our Subcity platform! Next up for us we have Mafalda of Melodies International: coming through to bless our basement with her collection of sun-soaked, smile-instigating records.
➡ Portugese born, now London based – Mafalda has been making waves in both the world of disco/soul reissuing and deejaying: firstly through Melodies International – the label she co-runs with Floating Points; & secondly through her slot on NTS and further spreading gig schedule.
➡ The label itself has been responsible for re-releasing some beautiful and previously almost impossible to own records - from groups like Aged in Harmony, Tomorrow’s People and Maurice Moore & Family Affair Band.
“We might go to America and knock on doors to find someone and then exchange letters with them – licensing can be tricky and unfair sometimes but it can also be very romantic."
➡ Her passion for the label's output also translates to her passion behind the decks - something clearly noticeable in any of her published recordings; and further verified in her bookings this summer for a multitude of festivals ie Dimensions & Dekmantel.
➡ Door tax for this one is as light and breezy as the records themselves - £5 before 12, and £8 after - we hope to see you all there!
