Podcast: Backstage (At Home) with Dan Digs – Episode 6: Brijean
Come backstage and meet Brijean!
The Oakland duo and I talked about their very favorite venue to play, how they first met, hip-hop trivia nights, opening for Channel Tres, Salami Rose Joe Louis DJing their first show, their jazz backgrounds, Brijean nudging Doug into disco music, dancing all night at house nights in Madison, Wisconsin, texting Chaz from Toro Y Moi about great house music, the supportive musical community of Oakland, writing their amazing track “Moody” in just 20 minutes, being inspired by Timbaland’s productions, the story behind their music video for “Wifi Beach,” Karen Carpenter drums solos, a forthcoming Brijean remix by a house music legend (they wouldn’t tell me who!), future collaborations, and their brand new album Feelings out now on Ghostly.
Plus we played music from Moodymann, Candido, and Mejiwahn.
Brijean also played my new feature FIVE GEMS, where I ask artists five rapid-fire questions about five of the best things in life.
Listen to hear them talk about their picks for:
1 – A GEM OF A SONG
2 – A GEM OF AN ALBUM
3 – A GEM OF A LIVE SHOW
4 – A GEM OF A FILM
5 – A GEM OF A PIECE OF ADVICE
