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 we welcomed singer Niia and producer Robin Hannibal to the studio!



We talked about Niia’s fantastic Generation Blue EP (produced by Robin), her dad’s suggestions for album titles, Jai Paul’s thoughts on her “BTSTU” cover, making timeless music, and East Coast meatballs.
