30 Mar 2018
A bank holiday pop-up curated by NTS DJ Jon Rust with a vinyl sale and practical synth workshop .
For two days, Libreria bookshop will be transformed into a treasure trove of rare vinyl, with a specially-curated mix of Detroit house, UKG, disco funk and other rarities from the private collections of Jon and other NTS DJs up for grabs. There will also be Bloody Marys all morning, so get down early!
Meanwhile, downstairs FKA Twigs collaborator Cy An will be running practical workshops to demystify the use of synthesisers in making music for beginners and more experienced practitioners. You'll leave with a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of synthesis, together with hands-on experience of using hardware and software to compose sounds – and a recording of your own work to take home.
Vinyl Store is open Friday – Saturday, 11am – 7pm
Workshops run from 12pm – 4:30pm each day.
