Show number 38!


As always, the latest and greatest in leftfield beats and electronic soul, plus interviews with my favorite artists for your listening pleasure every Sunday night on Dash 1 at


We never play the same song twice on this show, so consider it your weekly update of all things new and good in soulful and beat-driven music!




This week we welcomed the extremely talented composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Adrian Younge to the studio!



We talked about the perfect imperfections of the human element in music, the importance of story, the now-shelved album he produced for Snoop Dogg, hunting for rare vinyl, his label Linear Labs, how his record store The Artform Studio is like a Parisian bookshop, why he plays 7-inch records, and the brilliant brand new album he produced for Ghostface Killah, 12 Reasons to Die II.
