The Dan Digs Show 055: New Olivier St Louis, Mo Kolours, Tei Shi, DJ Mitsu the Beats, Max Graef & Glenn Astro – Special Guests: Fat Freddy’s Drop & Sylvan Esso’s Nick Sanborn aka Made of Oak (Live Set)
Show number 55!
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 welcomed Joe “Hopepa” Lindsay and Mark Williams aka MC Slave aka the Loggcabin from eight-piece New Zealand dub reggae-soul band Fat Freddy’s Drop to the studio!
We talked about filming music videos in fish and chip shops, Depeche Mode, Glastonbury, songs inspired by Maori soup recipes, and their amazing new album. BAYS!
As if that wasn’t enough, we also welcomed one of my favorite musicians, Sylvan Esso’s Nick Sanborn aka Made of Oak to the studio to play us a live set!
We discussed Low End Theory, the Durham, North Carolina music scene, his awesome new Penumbra EP, and how to make music that feels human.
