The Dan Digs Show 046: New Kelela, Kwabs, Astronauts Etc, Lone, Tirzah, MeLo-X – Dan in the DJ Mix with a Darker Than Wax Triple Play


Show number 46!


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 (or almost 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 saw a two-hour mix of brand new music from Kelela, Kwabs, Astronauts Etc, Lone, Tirzah, and MeLo-X!



Our Track of the Week this week was courtesy of London-via-Liverpool producer SG Lewis with “Shivers” featuring the vocal talents of JP Cooper.



Also! Our Blast from the Past was the very deserving “Ode To Billie Joe” by Lou Donaldson, highlighting the drum break that has been sampled by everyone from A Tribe Called Quest (“Clap Your Hands”) to Kanye West (“Jesus Walks”).



Plus! My brand new track “Love You I Do” gets an airing! It samples one of my favorite bands in the galaxy, Hiatus Kaiyote, and fuses them with some Japanese jazz keys and a boom-bap beat.
