Dig Deep Tracklisting: Friday Night/Saturday Morning May 28 2011 1am-3am PST on KBCS Bellevue-Seattle 91.3FM & www.kbcs.fm

Another big UK beats and bass music show to start Memorial Day Weekend right!

This igloo is some NEXT HYPE.

No doubt we deep dug. The Beatles and the Chems set things off with their two remarkably similar songs (my money’s on the Chems getting there first), and we also saw new music from Benji Boko ft Maxi Jazz (ex-Faithless), Brownswood beathead Letherette, Cornershop, Buck UK, Hackman, Om Unit, and BNJMN. Jst wndrfl.

Plus our PRODUCER IN THE SPOTLIGHT this week was Simon Green aka Bonobo aka his new DJ guise Barakas (look out for him at Sasquatch! Festival at The Gorge, WA this weekend), our NIGHT DRIVE TUNE was those 2 Bears bringing the nocturnal club riddims to Toddla T’s and Benjamin Zephaniah’s ‘Rebel’, and our FIVE MINUTES OF CHILL was provided by Space Raiders.
