The Dan Digs Show 067: Black Peaches, Illum Sphere, Different Sleep, Robert Glasper, Typesun – Special Guest: Saul Williams
Show number 67!
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 the mighty Saul Williams to the #DanDigsShow!
We talked about the first song that made him want to write rhymes, his love for the sound of Bristol, UK, the majesty of drum ‘n’ bass, playing records at his house for Yasiin Bey, the progression of hip-hop, the alchemy of collaboration, and his fantastic new album, MartyrLoserKing.
Plus the show saw brand new music from Black Peaches, Illum Sphere, Different Sleep, Robert Glasper, and Typesun.
