18/09/11 w/ Charles Bals

Back in 2009 Lovefingers hosted Beach Freaks Don’t Like Secrets, a seminal mix of 70s coastal funky hippies that was pieced together by Düsseldorf digger Charles Bals. Most of the obscure tracks came from rare Italian and French 7″s that were available through online store Cosmic Dudes. The shop specialises in the hardest to find cosmic disco and electronic avant garde that Charles and likeminded full-time record excavator Mitch have salvaged from the far reaches of Europe. Years on, Beach Freaks still holds up as one of our favourite ever sets of psych grooves and we’re totally flipped to be hosting it’s equally exciting sequel. While the tracklisting for the original mix remains sacred, Charles throws a cat amongst the pigeons and divulges one for it’s companion. Bring the banana lounge, shades and beach ball and follow us to the endless summer!

* We’re taking a two week break from broadcasting while we fossick around Japan (mainly Tokyo and Osaka). Locals – feel free to get in touch. Depending on how many DJ friendly records I resurrect, I’ll be playing a few gigs there. Flyers below for what has been confirmed so far. Hope to see some familiar faces : )
