Listen/Download this Week’s DIG DEEP Radio Show with Dan Digs: Beats, Bass & Electronic Soul on KBCS 91.3FM Seattle – July 21, 2012 Tracklisting – The Sound-Off! with Special Guest Vox Mod

The Dig Deep radio show welcomes experimental electronic beats and bass producer Vox Mod to the KBCS studio tonight for the Sound-off!

6 rounds, 6 musical categories, 12 songs, 2 music aficionados, and a busload of beats, basslines, and that quality music talk talk.

Plus tunes from Q-Tip, Plantlife, Poolside, Alexis Davis, and, yes, the Spice Girls.

 

 

Here’s how it was dropped like it was hotter than July.

FIRST TRACK SLOWS DOWN THE SPICE GIRLS TILL THEY SOUND LIKE A RARE 70s DISCO-SOUL RECORD WITH AN EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD AND WHINY CLASSIC G-FUNK INTRO. WHO KNEW?
0:01 Spice Girls – “Say You’ll Be There” (Dan Digs’ Screwed But Not Chopped Mix)

0:06 Plantlife – “Sun Shines Through Your Love”
0:09 Jay & Jaar (Jay-Z vs Nicolas Jaar) – “Encore” (Buzz-T Mashup)

TENDJIZ FUSES CLASSIC HIP-HOP ALBUMS WITH SOVIET SOUL AND JAZZ SAMPLES. THE RESULTS ARE REMARKABLE AND WORTHY OF SEVERAL CURIOUS EYEBROW RAISES. CHECK OUT HIS OTHER MASHUP LPs “DE LA SOULVIET” (ZING!) AND (COMMON & NAS BLEND) “COMMONASM” (ZANG!)
0:15 Q-Tip & TenDJiz – “1nce Again”

3 DJs AND 1 MC FROM SAN FRANCISCO, CLEVELAND, AND LONDON MET ON THE INTERNET AND DECIDED TO SWAP FILES AND CUT SOME HIP-HOP CUTS
0:20 Alexis Davis – “3”

THIS CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND MUSICIAN MAKES BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL FOLK-SOUL. THE BEST PART IS THE SUBTLE JAZZ BEAT THAT UNSUSPECTINGLY DRIFTS IN AT THE 44 SECOND MARK.
0:26 Lawrence Arabia – “Early Kneecapping”

0:30 Poolside – “Why You Wanna”
0:33 Vox Mod – “Embers & Snow”

***THE SOUND-OFF! with special guest Vox Mod***

ROUND 1: SOUNDS LIKE YOUR FAVORITE SUMMER JAM
(ALL ENTRANTS ARE LEGALLY PROHIBITED FROM PLAYING DJ JAZZY JEFF AND THE FRESH PRINCE’S “SUMMERTIME” AS THERE IS OFFICIALLY NO BETTER SUMMER JAM IN THIS KNOWN UNIVERSE AND TO DO SO WOULD GIVE A DECISIVELY UNFAIR COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE)
VM: Pink Floyd – “Learning to Fly”
DD: Frank Ocean – “Sweet Life”

ROUND 2: SOUNDS LIKE MUSIC TO WAKE UP TO
VM: Caro5el – “Glissss”
DD: The xx – “Angels” (Andrea Remix)

ROUND 3: SOUNDS LIKE SEATTLE
VM: Macros the Black – “Untitled Track”
DD: Erik Blood – “Today’s Lover”

ROUND 4: SOUNDS LIKE A COMPLETE EARWORM OF A TUNE THAT GETS STUCK IN YOUR HEAD AND JUST WON’T LEAVE
VM: Future Sound of London – “We Have Explosive”
DD: Allen Stone – “Say So”

ROUND 5: SOUNDS LIKE THE SONG THAT GOT YOU INTO ELECTRONIC MUSIC
VM: Geinoh Yamashirogumi – “Exodus from the Underground Fortress”
DD: DJ Zinc – “Super Sharp Shooter”

ROUND 6: SOUNDS LIKE YOU
VM: Kyle Michael Porter – “You Don’t Know Me”
DD: Dan Digs – “3am”

LAST TRACK BRINGS THAT FUTURE DISCO STOMP BOOGIE TO KEEP YOU DANCING DANCING DANCING DANCING
1:57 Black Strobe – “Boogie in Zero Gravity” (Hot Toddy Remix)
