The Dan Digs Show 057: New Van Hunt, Mr Carmack, Money Mark, Ra Ra Riot & Rostam, Eryn Allen Kane – Special Guests: Ta-ku & Benjamin Yellowitz (Live Set)
Show number 57!
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!
Ta-ku and I talked about Dilla, Eric Clapton, and the importance of a good cheese platter. He then chose the completely incredible song “Can’t Find My Way Home” by Blind Faith to close the interview—hear it below!
Birmingham, UK’s Benjamin Yellowitz then swung by the Dash Radio studios for a chat and an amazing live acoustic set. We discussed Laura Mvula teaching him music, the music scenes of Berlin and Brum, and heavy metal riffage.
