The Dan Digs Show 104: New Solange x Kaytranada, Azymuth, Jay Daniel, All the People, Dead Horse Beats – Special Guests: Mura Masa & Linafornia
Show number 104!
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 Mura Masa and Linafornia to the #DanDigsShow.
Alex and I talked about recording with A$AP Rocky at Abbey Road, the genius of James Blake, airhorns, meeting Damon Albarn, his label Anchor Point, playing in punk bands, David Rodigan, growing up on an island in the English Channel, Bonzai, and his upcoming US and European tours.
Lina and I talked about Madlib, playing Low End Theory, Flying Lotus’ rap alter-ego Captain Murphy, the SP-404, Adult Swim, and her fantastic album, YUNG.
Plus the show saw brand new music from Kaytranada, Azymuth, Jay Daniel, All the People, and Dead Horse Beats.
