Press Play #52 - Lel Palfrey

Lel Palfrey hails from Edinburgh, he's addicted to vinyl and nurturing a craving for rotary mixers too (apparently 3 is not enough). If you live in the area you've heard him in local Bars and Clubs and you'll have already witnessed his passion for Soul, Funk, Boogie, Disco and House. Lel rides the wave between digger and party dj with a focus on much loved underground classics like Arthur Adams' 'You've got The Floor' and Skye's 'Ain't No Need'. You'll find his mix has a good blend of new bits, old stuff and lesser known gems, mixed up with the dexterity of a well seasoned dj. If you know our Press Play series well, then you'll also know we attempt to mix well known dj's with lesser known selectors, but with a strict eye on quality and scenes we dig. Lel delivers a top class, late night, groovin' basement mix for the heads, you'll be off the couch in no time.

You can catch the man playing a similar vibe - bar the Housey numbers - in a sweaty basement in Edinburgh during the Fringe Festival at Ultragroove on Saturday 20th August at Cabaret Voltaire (not much notice I know), alongside Julio Bashmore and Gareth Sommerville, who runs, promotes and plays at the party. Or keep em peeled for upcoming gigs, this man knows his onions... Thanks Lel for dropping by, the rest of you get downloading. Big!!

Lovely mix so far, but why does "Did It Again" sound like it was run through a cheese grater? Warping casualty?
