Welcome to Volume 15 of our all 45s mix series, this one by Tom Showtime.

Tom Showtime is a man of many guises: DJ. Producer. Remixer. Dad. Saxophonist. 45 Enthusiast. Pizza guy. Co-founder of Easy Now Recordings and band member of ZEDSIX. That’s just how he rolls…

Tom had this to say about his mix:

'This live mixtape is a pretty good example of me in ‘full flight’ using our beloved small format. Recorded at a packed GoGo Bar in Melbourne it travels across Funk, Rap, Beats, Soul, Afrobeat, Cumbia, Latin and then lands smoothly in jazzy Hip Hop territory. Expect to hear cutting, scratching and as always some serious delay. I hope you dig the sounds and have a very pleasant journey on Flight 45...'

This mix, this page and The Forty Five Kings are all about the 45 format and for us the 45 reigns supreme, there is no musical format greater!
