10 tracks that take Lovefingers back to the first time he played Greece in 2007.
Having honed his craft playing in punk bands across the US, developing his love for house, techno and Disco at LA’s Blackdisco parties, and building his profile curating obscure vinyl rips with his site Lovefingers.org – from which he took his namesake – Lovefingers’ extensive knowledge of music has led him to become a truly distinguished tastemaker.
In collaboration with the world famous Cariocas beach bar, the inaugural Odyssia festival will be taking place at the idyllic fishing village of Schinos, and with a line up featuring DJ Harvey, Benji B, Jeremy Underground among others, the festival is set to be one of Greece’s most exciting parties of 2016.
In anticipation of Odyssia’s seven days of sun drenched sounds, Lovefingers has shared a collection of throwback tracks, focused around his first ever performance in Greece at 2007’s Black Athena Party: “I’ve put them in a sequence as they may have been heard over the span of a night… but by no means do I have any accurate memory of the party. They’re more-or-less personal classics”.
