Dazzle Ships: Beppe Loda

This get-together—named for either an Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark album or the actual vessels themselves, we can’t figure out which—sails back into East Village bar Heathers, where Dan Selzer, Tropical Jeremy and Ben Gebhardt spin an array of astonishing aurals. Tonight's guest is the Italian veteran Beppe Loda, the man who forged the Afro sound—a mélange of synth music, funk and disco, Brazilian jazz and African Rhythms—at Italy's fabled Typhoon club in the ’80s.
