Danny Krivit’s ten most-wanted 45s
by Andrew Mason
Over the summer, legendary New York City spinner Danny Krivit played an epic set celebrating his forty-five years of DJing. Filled with soulful dance classics and sprinkled throughout with clever asides (Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five”!), the performance was notable in the fact that it was comprised entirely of 7-inch singles. Forty-five years, 45RPM, get it? The full list of what he played (along with images of the diminutive records themselves) can be found on Danny’s website, but for those who want to get a closer look, he’ll be reprising the occasion on Thursday. Tickets are available here.
As a special treat for Wax Poetics readers, Danny has dropped us a want-list of rare 7-inches that he doesn’t have. Here’s ten that you won’t be hearing on Thursday, unless you bring a copy for Mr. K!
