The Vinyl Countdown
Extras / Listening to an album on vinyl can be downright addictive. That feeling of anxiety as you thumb through sleeves at a record shop; the moment your eyes fall upon the beautiful cover art of your favorite band’s best album; the frustration of hitting every red light on your way home so that you can hear that needle finally get into the record’s groove–there’s nothing quite like it.
That’s why DJ Nocturna and Lana Saldania, a duo that has thrown extravagant parties for five years, present Share Your Own Vinyl Night [SYOVN]. Saldania’s vision for a night of intimate vinyl-listening was conceived when she wandered through the former home of piano composer Martin Denny, located in Black Point, during the Sony Open. “I wanted to know who lived there because I felt like it was a musician . . . I just got this cool vibe. When I found out it was Martin Denny’s, I got goosebumps,” Saldania says. Days later, she discovered a Martin Denny record in her parents’ garage.
“I want to recreate the feeling and energy of being in his home,” Saldania says. “[SYOVN is] about sharing your favorite song. And we’ll play it. If you want to talk about it, even better.”
