The Dan Digs Show 089: New BadBadNotGood, FKJ, Florian Kupfer, MNDSGN, Pedestrian – Special Guests: Stro Elliot (Live Set) & New Zealand Music Update with Martyn Pepperell
Show number 89!
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.
Stro and I talked about the art of the edit, his eclectic musical taste, and the supremely high quality horn samples to be found in the works of the band Chicago before he launched into an incredible live beat set full of edits and remixes. Later in hour two of the show Martyn and I discussed his favorite music of 2016 so far and played tracks he brought to the studio from three New Zealand artists that people should know.
Plus the show saw brand new music from BadBadNotGood, FKJ, Florian Kupfer, MNDSGN, Pedestrian, and Blaze.
