Launched in February 2015, ‘Love Injection’ is a labor-of-love, monthly print fanzine distributed free via a network of independent record stores nationally and internationally. Co-edited by Paul Raffaele and Barbie Bertisch, ‘Love Injection’ has quickly established itself as a critical platform for celebrating the constantly shifting cultures of dance music. Featuring in-depth interviews with DJs, musicians, artists, and promoters; profiles on record labels, record stores, and nightclubs; alongside record reviews and DJ charts, ‘Love Injection’ is an essential monthly read for anyone interested in dance music and dance-floor culture in all its manifestations, past and present. Love Injection on The Lot Radio serves as the zine's sonic equivalent, airing Saturdays 10am-12pm EST at thelotradio.com. The two also produce the NYC chapter of Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy's global Classic Album Sundays communal listening sessions monthly, currently held at Magick City in Greenpoint. Paul also runs the Most Excellent Unlimited record label.

Coming off an incredible weekend and excited for a big night in February! 🚨 Thrilled to be sharing the decks with Colleen Cosmo Murphy, who is bringing her Cosmodelica party to the US for the first time. She’s a beloved NY figure now living in London with an amazing resume, pure class and grace—DJ, radio host, writer, founder of Classic Album Sundays, part of Lucky Cloud, and student of some of the greatest to ever do it. She’s also a wonderful friend and mentor and we are over the moon to welcome her, on Valentine’s Day no less, at @publicrecordsnyc for this one. We can’t wait! ♥️ advance tix up for grabs now.

WOW.

During the compilation of our 30 year memories Dave Bongo unearthed a dusty VHS tape and discovered something very special… unseen footage of the Masters At Work at their NYC studio in the 90s!

In 1996 we had the privilege of commissioning remixes for Amtosfear’s anthemic ‘Dancin’ In Outer Space’. We called upon the legendary MAW and Dave was lucky enough to drop in on some of the sessions at Dungeon Tape (Brooklyn), and the Battery Studios NYC.

He captured some of the studio vibes during the making of what would become a classic in its own right.

Hard to believe we’re coming up on Issue 50 of @loveinjection.nyc. It’s far from perfect, but it was never meant to be. Landing somewhere between a xerox zine and a glossy mag, our intention is to create a time capsule of NYC music and culture. We’re delighted to have been featured with a short Q&A on The Stack, Monocle’s podcast on printed media, over the weekend. It is so flattering to be in great company. Here’s a throwback of our first and only box set (so far) prototype from 2 years ago. Thank you @feapfeap for the feature! (link is in bio)

The Legacy of Judy Russell (RIP) - Love Injection - Medium

Very thankful for the short but sweet time we spent with Judy Russell, who was brought into our lives by Ben Scribe Goldfarb. Here she is, in a joyful state, reunited with old friends. Around the time of this campaign, Ben compiled a series of interviews with her and so gracefully allowed us to publish it. You can read it on medium if you wish to learn more about this humorous, behind-the-scenes underrated force and fierce supporter of the nightclub figures that went on to make history. Thankful for all your contributions. “Weekend” and “Hi Judy” plays forever on loop for you. #judyrussell

Interview by Ben Goldfarb for Love Injection Issue #35 in February 2018. Transcribed by Nik Mercer.
