The second mixtape for G’Old Vinyl Korea has been online for a couple of weeks, although the celebratory party is happening this Friday night at Exit. G’Old Vinyl, short for ‘Good Old Korea Vinyl’, is a website which creates and curates online playlists using records gathered from Hongdae bar Gopchang Jeongol, a basement haven for funky Korean language music from the 60′s to the 90′s.
The first mixtape gained international recognition from prestigious media such as VICE, Dazed & Confused UK and The Creator’s Project, while the initial launch at Strange Fruit (Hongdae) was an excellent private after-party to the January’s Toro Y Moi and Vinyl Williams gig.
The upcoming event has a retro fancy dress theme and will be an aural treat for anyone interested in Korean music from the peace-and-love decade onwards.
Exit is near Hongdae playground. For directions and more info on the party see here.
