Recommended Gem: Phil Taggart Talks to MJ Cole (Podcast)
A recommended gem of a podcast.
Northern Irish DJ and broadcaster Phil Taggart hosts the Slacker podcast, a deep dive into musical history and journey of the UK’s biggest artists and bands.
In this episode he interviews the garage legend that is MJ Cole, creator of one of my all-time favorite albums.
(I mean, I don’t think there’s a better combination of classical piano ripples over UK garage beat toughness than “Introduction.”)
(And don’t get me started on the beauty of “Sincere,” the “Inner City Life” of UKG.)
Come for the chat about how MJ Cole became a piano maestro at a young age, stay for the airing of the original demo version of “Crazy Love.”
