This week we welcomed Van Hunt to the studio to take us through the #SixSongScenario, where musicians, DJs, and music aficionados tell the story behind their favorite tracks and explain what these songs mean to them.

 

We talked about laying down rhythms on his phone, starting his own label, his latest album The Fun Rises, The Fun Sets, how if you like No I.D. you should listen to Waylon Jennings’ kick drums, and how aliens taught him to play music in Dayton, Ohio.
