Jack Garratt & Dan Digs

 

This week we welcomed Jack Garratt to the #DanDigsShow!

We talked about his favorite beatmakers, the genius of Stevie Wonder, the lyrical meaning of his songs, dropping out of university after a term and a day, having a Plan A over a Plan B, and what exactly is that beguiling vocal sample at the start of his breakout track, “The Love You’re Given,” which was number 22 in my Top 100 Tracks of 2014!
