The West Coast’s premiere all 45 RPM outlet. ‘The 45 Sessions’ was started by DJ Platurn in February of 2010. Having traveled all over the world, worked with Red Bull, Amoeba Records, Puma, SXSW, and many more, the 45 Sessions has proven to be much larger than its 7″ circumference. Little records, big sound!
