Old Rope also likes to play vinyl records, in sequence, to other people at reasonable volumes whilst also feeling like he is doing something very special or clever when he is 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.

Some (semi) regular things I’m involved with include:

Plastique Fantastique
Spinnin’ garage, punk, soul, funk, hip hop and mucho mas.
At Craft Taproom (Liverpool), first Friday of the month.

Soul y Vida
Soul y Vida is a solidarity party for Leeds No Borders, playing Soul, funk, disco and house.
Previously at The Fenton and New Moorside (Leeds) bi-monthly.

Coffee and Turntables
Summer vibes, DJs playing vinyl… and coffee!
Previously at The Baltic Roastery/92 Degrees Coffee (Liverpool) every Saturday through summer.
Autumn/winter programme coming soon.

Follow Old Rope on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see where I pop up DJing.
