28/06/2020 // Episode 159: A Love Letter To House Music

Lava Lava is back on the airwaves after a month-long hiatus with a special 3 hour broadcast.

Our show has always focused on House Music and the celebration of racial and sexual diversity that comes with it. The European club culture we have right now would not be anything like what it is today if it wasn’t for those pioneering artists, producers, DJ’s, vocalists and clubbers who created House Music.

Today is a love letter to house music, the black American artists who made it what it is today and those who continue to push the boundaries.
