Conversations @ Dublab

Love Injection: Conversations is the sonic extension of the print fanzine out of New York. Paul Raffaele & Barbie Bertisch host roundtable discussions, interviews and invite friends to discuss music and the culture surrounding it. It’s pre-recorded at Red Bull Studios in New York and aired the third Saturday of the month from 10am-12pm PST (1pm-3pm EST) on Dublab. These are the resulting recordings.

Justin Strauss

Two hours of conversation with Justin Strauss, one of NYC’s most important DJs and producers. From his teenage years at Milk n Cookies to DJing the city’s best to a massive list of remixing and original productions that speaks volumes, it’s hard to keep conversation to a 2-hour limit. He’s an influence to many and a dear friend who continues to inspire us through words and music. Listen.

Bruce Forest
