Show number 20!
As always, the latest in my favorite new leftfield beats and electronic soul, plus interviews with my favorite artists, for your listening pleasure every Sunday night on Dash One at DashRadio.com.
This week we welcomed New Orleans hip-hop artist Pell to the studio to take us through the #SixSongScenario, where artists, DJs, and music aficionados tell the story behind their favorite tracks and explain what these songs mean to them.
We talked about hurricane parties, touring with Kindness, working at the dollar store while writing music, and the importance of positivity.
