The Dan Digs Show 050: New Flying Lotus, Thundercat, Kaytranada, Moonchild, Strange Faith – Special Guests: Hiatus Kaiyote & Different Sleep
Show number 50! Whoa!
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 DashRadio.com.
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 spoke with one of my very favorite bands, Hiatus Kaiyote, on the floor of the El Rey Theatre right after their soundcheck. We talked about the origin story of how the group came together, why so many great bands come out of Melbourne, Australia, and the meaning behind “By Fire,” my favorite song on their new album, Choose Your Weapon.
See more pictures and videos from Hiatus Kaiyote’s show at the El Rey over at my Instagram here.
We also welcomed Different Sleep to the studio to talk about his music, the perfect soundtrack to riding public transportation late at night while living in Chicago, and why we need both two-step and trance revivals.
He then graced us with a live set full of unreleased edits and remixes!
