The Dan Digs Show 064: RJD2, Chairlift, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Essaie Pas – Special Guest: Moonchild

 

Show number 64!

 

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 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 one of my favorite groups, the “tape-delay soul” (my new favorite genre!) trio Moonchild to the studio!

We talked about how they came up with their name while stargazing, meeting Stevie Wonder, playing at Jazzy Jeff’s house, and their six favorite records (hear them during our talk!).

 

Plus we play brand new music from RJD2, Chairlift, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and Essaie Pas!
