Beats, beers & books? NTS DJ Jon Rust and FKA Twigs collaborator Cy An joined us over Easter for our first Analog Weekender at Libreria.
Jon curated a vinyl sale with a mixture of Detroit house, UKG, disco funk and other rarities from his personal collection. When chatting with Jon about his reasons for selling some classic records he said ‘It’s part of an ongoing process – records are a great way to acquaint yourself with the music, but having too many possessions will weigh you down. Some records I will cherish, others I’m happy to send off to a good home once I’ve absorbed what they hold – it’s a bit like pruning your garden, in order to promote growth you need to cut back and I am all for that.’
It wasn’t all about the vinyl though – Cy An took over the basement for a series of practical synth workshops. We decided to get our hands dirty and learnt all about fundamentals of synthesisers and how to make sounds from software (we even took home a recording that we made ourselves!).
We can’t wait to host more events celebrating analog culture at Libreria. Watch this space!
