12PM - Samira Winter
Samira Winter celebrates her band's new Record Store Day EP, Infinite Summer, with a DJ set at Amoeba Hollywood! Purchase your copy on 4/13 to get your copy signed after her set. It's a playful, bilingual spin on Winter's nostalgic '80s sound. Winter is the project of songwriter Samira Winter, whose love for guitar music and nostalgic imagery inspired the dream pop/indie rock four piece. Samira grew up in Curitiba, Brazil listening to her American father's punk records, and her Brazilian mother's MPB (Brazilian Popular Music) tunes. While living in Boston during her college years she found a love for shoegaze which led to her collaboration with Nolan Eley who recorded and produced Winter's first EP Daydreaming and LP Supreme Blue Dream. In 2013 Samira relocated to Los Angeles where the band currently resides working on their upcoming album Ethereality. Winter aspires to connect people to their inner child by making blissful, beautiful, dream pop.


2PM - Gaby Moreno

Guatemalan singer-songwriter and guitarist Gaby Moreno returns to Amoeba to share another rousing DJ set of her favorite tunes and influences. Her music ranges from blues, jazz, soul, to R&B. Moreno sings in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese. Watch for her new album with Van Dyke Parks – coming soon from Nonesuch Records!

The West Coast’s premiere all 7″ vinyl monthly event! The 45 Sessions was started by DJ Platurn of the Oakland Faders in February of 2010. Having traveled all over and worked with Red Bull, Amoeba Music, Puma, and many more, the Sessions has proven to be much larger than its 7″ circumference. Little records, big sound — all 45s, all night! Come see what the hype is all about.

The 45 Sessions is DJs Platurn, E Da Boss, Enki, Delgado, Mr. E, & Shortkut.

He is a numerous West Coast/USA DMC title holder and is responsible for creating some of the most influential DJ routines of all time, literally bringing new techniques to the genre.


A 24-year veteran of the music industry, Platurn has traveled the world bringing phenomenal music to multiple corners of the globe, building a reputation as a tastemaker with vision and a sense of community and in turn preserving crucial aspects of DJ and music culture. Founder of the Oakland Faders and The 45 Sessions.


E Da Boss 
DJ E Da Boss has been in the game since 1983, when as a youngster in Newark, NJ, he tried to emulate local hero DJ Cheese on a Realistic mixer with no crossfader. A few years later, a friend introduced him to legendary DJ and producer Mark the 45 King, whose mixtapes inspired E to get into digging for old records and breakbeats. From there, E worked on expanding his record collection and his DJ skills.


Born and raised in Oakland, California, Delgado had his first gig in 1991. He moved to Los Angeles in 1994 and began working at radio station KSPC where he hosted the most listened-to Reggae show in Los Angeles for five years, still keeping on top of Hip Hop by hosting a well-known weekly open mic night.
