Geraldo Oliveira (GeraH) is an inquisitive Brazilian record collector now based in London.

Having played at a good deal of underground clubs and parties in São Paulo, he also created Laca Negra, tapping into multiple facets of soul, jazz and R&B at different bars.

In 2019 GeraH co-founded Dublab Brazil (Brazilian branch of Los Angeles station Dublab) with DJ Zinco and the journalist Monica Herculano.

He will be going b2b with fellow compatriot Plinio from the Ondo Onda Collective

Plinio is a selector and guitarrist. Born and raised on the west side of Sao Paulo, Brazil, he has experienced and absorbed all of the cultural manifestations that a vibrant megalopolis can offer. Curious about the folkloric and the traditional, his music is a reflection of the places he has been and of times that are long gone but thankfully recorded on vinyl.

Based in London for the past 6 years, he plays guitar with Los Pussatas Fritas and is part of the cultural collective Ondo Onda, which holds a monthly show at Netil Radio and promotes parties in east London.

Expect South American rhythms, forgotten dances, tropical flavours and good old jazz.

Discs of Fun and Love is a label run by Miche and Frederika. Both of them spread their time between London musical institutions such as Spiritland, NTS and Worldwide FM.

In their spare time they continue to dig for the next essential record to add to their ever growing collections.

The label itself shines a light on forgotten music and focuses on bringing lost, soulful treasures to the dance floor once more. Affordable, remastered and beautifully packaged, no aspect is forgotten in their quest to re-release a product the artist can be proud of sharing once again.

The label's releases can be found across the globe and their first two releases from Rochelle Rabouin & Sweet Mixture earned a wave of support from Gilles Peterson, Hunee, John Gomez, Mafalda and many more

As well as the records, they know how to throw a party. 2019 saw Friday late night sessions in a King's Cross basement, to lazy Sunday sessions on some of London's best sound systems.
