Old Rope also likes to play vinyl records in sequence to other people, all at reasonable volumes. This makes me feel like I am doing something very clever, when I am demonstrably not. That may be how you discovered Old Rope. Come over and say hi if you are about and happen upon me spinning tunes.
To book me to DJ at an event contact me here.
Some (semi) regular things I’m involved with include:
Spinnin’ garage, punk, soul, funk, hip hop and mucho mas.
At Craft Taproom (Liverpool), last Friday of the month. Check Facebook for details.
Soul y Vida
