Launched in February 2015, ‘Love Injection’ is a labor-of-love, monthly print fanzine distributed free via a network of independent record stores nationally and internationally.
Co-edited by Paul Raffaele and Barbie Bertisch, ‘Love Injection’ has quickly established itself as a critical platform for celebrating the constantly shifting cultures of dance music. Featuring in-depth interviews with DJs, musicians, artists, and promoters; profiles on record labels, record stores, and nightclubs; alongside record reviews and DJ charts, ‘Love Injection’ is an essential monthly read for anyone interested in dance music and dance-floor culture in all its manifestations, past and present.
Love Injection on The Lot Radio serves as the zine’s sonic equivalent, airing Saturdays 10am-12pm EST at thelotradio.com. The two also produce the NYC chapter of Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy’s global Classic Album Sundays communal listening sessions monthly, currently held at Magick City in Greenpoint. Paul also runs the Most Excellent Unlimited record label and Barbie plays in Seedy Films, a New York punk band under the new Manono Records imprint.
