The Dan Digs Show 025: New Pete Rock, Kelela, The Seshen, Eric Lau, Jean Tonique – Special Guest: Tim Parker (You’ll Soon Know/NTS Radio London)
Show number 25!
As always, the latest in my favorite new leftfield beats and electronic soul, plus interviews with my favorite artists, DJs, and musicians, for your listening pleasure every Sunday night on Dash 1 at DashRadio.com.
This week we welcomed Tim Parker from You’ll Soon Know on NTS Radio in East London 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 the ethos behind NTS, what the sound of You’ll Soon Know sounds like, life in London, mysterious producers from Ipswich, rappers who give TED talks, and the rampant genius of Photek.
