Johan Fredrik Lavik is a legendary Norwegian record collector, dj and publisher who lives outside Helsinki in Finland. He runs the labels Afro7 and Jazzagression. In 2010, Lavik bought an enormous record collection, consisting of approximately 25.000 East African vinyl records. Since then, he has kept himself busy by cleaning, playing and sorting through them. Lavik has been a dj for 20 years, and he has played his East African singles over the entire world – but it is rare we actually get to hear him in Oslo. Don’t miss out!
