The Forty Five Kings are a collective of Djs, Record Labels, Record Collectors and Record Resellers whose mission is to spread the word about the greatest musical format in the world, the 45!
Started 12 months ago by Dj Mr Lob from Australia with Dj Marky Newby from the UK, the idea is to share our deep love of 45s culture.
In the last 15 months we have grown to over 650 Members on Facebook, released over 50 strictly 45s mixtapes to our Mixcloud page and hosted a multitude of Live Stream Dj Sets including our ‘24 Hour Live Stream Special‘ featuring 24 Djs from all around the world, a 12 Hour German Dj Special, the 45 Queens and 45 Kids live stream shows as well as the weekly Coffee & Donuts and Hump Day 45s shows and the monthly Reggae Fire Show amongst so many others, all on our twitch.tv/fortyfivekings page.
We have featured some of the world’s biggest 45s djs, turntablists and collectors on our streams such as Marc Hype, Dj Robert Smith, Dj Misbehaviour, Dom Search from The Nextmen, Chrome, Dj Mathmatics, Naughty NMX and Fonki Chef amongst so many other great djs from all around the world.
You can check out all the Stream videos on our Videos page!
We have a weekly Saturday Live Stream Show hosted by Dj Mr Lob and 25THC on Twitch and monthly extended Live Streams that are well worth checking out and following our Twitch page for.
We also release a weekly all 45s Mix to our Mixcloud page featuring a Guest Member every week.
We also have a range of Merchandise such as Tshirts, Stickers and Slipmats which we produce every now and again that is worth watching out for on our Instagram page for as they are Strictly Limited!
We aim to keep bringing you great content, as well as interviews and a blog!
Thanks for your time.
