Listen Back to Loops + Dots Episode 4 – New Music from Anderson .Paak ft André 3000, Flying Lotus ft Little Dragon, Nate Mercereau ft Terrace Martin, Linafornia, Falty DL – Special Guest: Benji B
Show number 4!
The fourth installment of my Loops + Dots radio show on Dublab aired brand new hot heat from Anderson .Paak ft André 3000, Flying Lotus ft Little Dragon, Nate Mercereau ft Terrace Martin, Linafornia remixing Salami Rose Joe Louis, and Falty DL.
This week we also welcomed one of the world’s best DJs and UK radio royalty Benji B to the studio to take us through the #SixSongScenario, where artists, DJs, and music aficionados tell the story behind their favorite tracks and explain what these songs mean to them.
Benji and I talked about his first music memories, starting out in radio, his BBC Radio 1 show, Masters at Work, the genius of Dilla, the myriad of sounds that make up London music in 2019, the wedding DJ set, taking risks and dropping Radiohead at peak time in a New York club, gqom, and the beauty of Fleetwood Mac.
