Diggin’ This: Dijon – “Big Mike’s” (Dark Green, Dark Green Records/R&R Digital) (Official Video)

 

Chaotic, spontaneous, and beautiful.

Recorded at his house with Mk.gee on guitar, the freeform Americana-R&B jam “Big Mike’s” by Los Angeles-via-Maryland musician Dijon carries shades of D’Angelo and Frank Ocean and fully captures the joy of creating music in real time in a boomy living room crowded with friends, not necessarily knowing, but trusting, where to go next.

 

 

It’s a song that’s not really a song that might just be one of my favorite songs of 2021.
