The Dan Digs Show 092: New Swindle, Kenny Dope, DJ Premier, Roots Manuva, Kerri Chandler – Special Guest: Jeff Parker (Tortoise)
Show number 92!
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 Chicago jazz experimentalist and Tortoise member Jeff Parker to the #DanDigsShow.
Jeff and I talked about Madlib, Tortoise, playing Fuji Rock Festival in Japan just before this interview, Rotary Connection, making music with his daughter, what makes a great live show, Willie Bobo, his dad taking him to see Duke Ellington and Gil-Scott Heron, and his fantastic new release The New Breed out now on International Anthem.
Plus the show saw brand new music from Swindle, Kenny Dope, DJ Premier, Roots Manuva, Kerri Chandler, and a previously unreleased song from Jeff!
