So the 45th 45 Sessions is this friday, December 20th, and i’m at a loss for words really. I can remember where my head was at when we started this thing (first Enki and I, then E Da Boss joined shortly thereafter). The intention was so simple — I had never had a home to play all these damn 45s I had been collecting for so long. Why not start a party?

Little did I know it would turn into what it has. The Sessions has hosted some of the most amazing DJs and collectors from around the world, and we’ve barely scratched the surface. We’ve made some friends, succeeded and failed, collaborated in some truly unique and wild ways from locations to making socks, played a shit load of 45s, danced and laughed, & continue to dig for more. But the main thing we’ve done is help build a community of truly thoughtful and appreciative lovers of this here culture, in the Bay Area and beyond — and for that, we salute you.

There’s so many people to thank — I wouldn’t even know where to start. Those of you have helped out in the biggest and smallest ways through the years know who you are. It’s because of you that this brand has grown to be what it is. Pat yourself on the back for that one. Real spit.
Join us on December 20th for the 45th 45 Sessions, 3 away from our 4 year anniversary. We’ve got some amazing things in store, and we can’t wait to share it with y’all!
Honored & humbled — DJ Platurn
