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.

Dan Digs & COMBAT!


To celebrate 100 episodes of the #DanDigsShow on Dash Radio, hour one saw a mix of previous guests’ choices for the category “Song With the Best Beat,” an impossible question, but one that every #DanDigsShow aims to answer.

We also welcomed COMBAT! and Tall Black Guy to the #DanDigsShow in hour two.



COMBAT! and I talked about being inspired to make music by traveling around the world, Parisian subway stops, the genius of Brian Eno, Balinese orchestras, Akira, and his amazing new album COMBAT! out now on Friends of Friends.



Tall Black Guy and I then talked about DJ Premier, living in the UK, Jazzy Jeff’s Playlist Retreat, collaborating with Moonchild, and his incredible new album, Let’s Take a Trip, out October 28 on First Word Records.



Plus the show saw brand new music from Hiatus Kaiyote, Shlohmo, Linafornia, Ras G, and Leisure.
