Turntabalist, Blend King & Total Cheeseball DJ Platurn Runs Us Through Some Of His Fave Love Tunes

I recently featured a nice little love themed blend with video to match by DJ Platurn of the world famous Oakland Faders and then thought to myself why not get him to come through and let us know some of his fave love jams and artists that create them by answering the Themes For Young Lovers questions and he was down for the cause! and it goes a little somethin' like this...

Name DJ Platurn

A/S/L – 34, manly Oaklander - California

Name 3 songs that would be no-brainers to put on a mixtape for that special someone you were trying to woo

Rude Boys – Written All Over Your Face
Aaron Neville – Tell It Like It Is
Mint Condition - Breakin' My Heart (Pretty Brown Eyes)

You've turned the lights down low, lit the candles and poured the dom perignon, what LP goes on the stereo?

What is your fave romantic film of all time?
Lots of ‘em, but currently ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’. Next runner up would have to be ‘Scarface’.

You've just had your heart broken, what's the song or LP that you play to ease the pain and get you through? Sigur Ros – Agaetis Byrjun

What song was/or would be your pick to be played during the first dance at your wedding? Emily King – U & I... love you Mich ;)

If you had to pick one artist or group, who’s music do you think has played the biggest part in helping increase the world’s population over the years?

My generation Jodeci


70’sAl Green


and finally What's your fave guilty pleasure/cheesiest love song? Too many to name, but if I had to pick... Joe Satriani – Always With Me, Always With You

It's a little known fact, i’m a total cheeseball and not afraid to admit it. Mixtape Evidence

Here are a few Platurn bits & pieces to check out, starting off with a tidy little pissed off lover themed Janet Jackson bootleg with the 7" out now on Bstrd Boots. Cop it here

and lets pretend this is the male response to Janet's track! Platurn teams up with fellow Oakland Fader DJ Enki to form The Blend Kings and lay down this beats & breaks remix of the classic Hall & Oates joint I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)
