LITO FORD (Real Eyes)

Full time mama of sassy twins, part time disco dancing record collector, Lito Ford enjoys every opportunity to provide music for her friends.
From making mix tapes with her mum’s record collection as a child, to browsing record stores through her teens, to inheriting a life changing record collection and discovering the internet (read: discogs), there has seldom been a time in her 33 years when records are far from reach.
Over the last 20 years of listening to electronic music, one of the most highly influential discoveries arrived with the 2004 release of Morgan Geist’s ‘Unclassics’ album: the introduction of Italo Disco to Lito Ford. The instant love prompted a musical journey that continues to grow to this day.
When asked to explain the difference between mainstream disco and her much preferred underplayed gems of the late 70’s and early 80’s, her response is simple: “There’s disco, and there’s disco. I play disco”.
