We discovered The Forty Five Kings after being recommended by our friend you might know simply as Mojaxx. We were blown away by the vibe of the group and the family atmosphere that DJ Mr Lob created. Here’s what its all about:
The Forty Five Kings Collective is a homage to the 45 and is not meant to be confused with the original and great ’45 King’ who we admire immensely.
The group is a place to post your digs, your finds, links to 45s on Sale, information about labels and upcoming releases, links to 45s only mixtapes new and old, pics of collections and digs, posting fliers and links to 45s based parties and to discuss 45s culture generally.
They are not solely a group of 45 Purists who only discuss OGs and rare 45s. They’re about the 45 format, which includes original pressings, rarities, reissues, mashups, bootlegs and dub plates.
They aren’t interested in how much you paid for your 45s (unless asked or they were a bargain find!) but in their sound and imagery and the digging stories related to them as you found them out in the wild.
They ask that members be involved and contribute to their website but most of all that you support your fellow member’s mixes and streams where possible!
