Music

The music policy at Coffee and Turntables is fairly broad. We want sunny good-time tunes to put a smile on people’s faces as they enjoy their weekend. We play lots of soul, funk, old-skool R&B 60s and 70s, Brazilian music, with dashes of electronica, 90s, and anything groovy.

Besides regulars Ivan and Pete, some of our events have a guest DJ, carefully selected for variety and the top tunes they will bring. It may be hip-hop, jazz, disco, movie themes, electro, dance, rock ‘n’ roll, country, reggae, indie or outright pop!

Remember we play all our tunes from vinyl records – we’re not the digital dukebox of your phone, but we think we have impeccable taste 😉 The music we play is hand-picked from our record collections and intended to bring good vibes to each café and liven up your lunchtime!

To get you in the mood, here’s a little sample of the sort of stuff we play.

Spotify Playlists

During the lockdowns of 2020 and 2021 we produced a series of bespoke playlists for some of our regular haunts, for times when cafés were open but we couldn’t run events. Later we produced a bunch of public playlists, usually based around a theme, as a way to connect C&T regulars during challenging times.

A lot of cafes around the city use our playlists now, so there’s a good chance you’ve heard our handiwork even if you’ve never been to a C&T event! Drop us a message if you hear any of our classic tunes anywhere. 🙂

Breakfast Beats with Good Morning

In 2021 we partnered with Good Morning (part of Good Liverpool) to provide bespoke playlists to accompany their delicious pastry delivery service. Customers simply scanned the QR code inside the croissant box and BOOM they were listening to the perfect accompaniment to their weekend. Breakfast + Beats. The partnership lead to a us DJing at the Good Markets “the ever rotating home of Liverpool’s best and brightest independents”.

You can still check out Good Morning on Instagram to whet your appetite, but for the moment the Good team are focusing on the markets.
