VF Live: Eliza Rose #7

Soul and disco records from India.

In VF Live, artists take you inside their homes, record shops, and studios for intimate selects and mixes.

Londoner Eliza Rose has spent over a decade working at her local record shop Flashback, acquiring a formidable collection along the way – sourced from the racks and beyond.

In Rose’s latest VF Live set, she plays records from a trip to India, before lockdowns began.
