Backyard Listening with fatik

Every Friday and Saturday night at Nowadays, we invite one of our favorite vinyl selectors down to pull out their dream backyard barbecue set to make the vibe right while you have a drink, grab a bite, play ping pong, lie in the grass or all of the above.

Tonight we welcome Federico Rojas-Lavado, a New York native who DJs as fatik and is the man behind one of Bushwick’s newest wax havens, Second Hand Records. Prior to opening the shop last fall, Federico handled new music buying for Downtown 304. His knowledge of dance music runs deep, but his collection swings wide: catch him dropping the needle on disco, funk, jazz and soul regularly on the Lot Radio. We’re looking forward to a wide-ranging set that gives shine to indispensable gems of the past, present and future.
