Sampa the Great is great.

For the fourth episode of Backstage with Dan Digs, the rogue offshoot of my regular Dublab radio show where we go behind the scenes at the world's best live music venues and have a chat with my favorite artists before their performances, I had a chat with Sampa while sitting on the stage before her recent show at Gold Diggers in LA.

We talked about the first song she ever wrote, her memories of her parents playing folk tapes from Zambia, her first time listening to 2Pac, listening to South Sudan rapper Krown while on tour, and the profound concept behind her new album, The Return, out next month via Ninja Tune and available as a red and green vinyl package in honor of the Zambian flag.

[This was previously broadcast as part of my regular Dublab show - Loops + Dots - episode 11. Listen to the full show with music at http://mixcloud.com/dandigs.]

I love me a good Origin story.

For the third episode of Backstage with Dan Digs, the rogue offshoot of my regular Dublab radio show where we go behind the scenes at the world's best live music venues and have a chat with my favorite artists before their performances, I caught up with London-via-New Zealand artist, musician, and Kiwi D’Angelo Jordan Rakei for a chat backstage before his recent Hollywood Forever show in LA.

We talked about playing the Troubadour two years ago, the pho vs. ramen debate, strong pho puns, getting recognition from Elton John, Quincy Jones, and Nile Rodgers, his house music alias Dan Kye, his kind-of-secret other music alias Frank Liin, making music on the MPC, his love of musical theater, golf, the rise of artificial intelligence, the best thing about London, and explaining the idea behind the cover art of his amazing new album, Origin, out now via Ninja Tune.

Thanks for tuning in! If you'd like to hear the version of this episode that includes the songs Jordan picked, just head to http://mixcloud.com/dandigs.

Nothing short of glorious.

For the second episode of Backstage with Dan Digs, the rogue offshoot of my regular Dublab radio show where we go behind the scenes at the world's best live music venues and have a chat with my favorite artists before their performances, I caught up with one of 2019's fastest rising stars: Slowthai.

Ty and I talked about LA, anticipating trying In-N-Out for the first time, his show rider, how surreal it is to release an album into the world, his singular voice, working with Mura Masa, writing "Doorman" in two hours on one hour of sleep, collaborating with Slaves, keeping his future releases a mystery, seeing Odd Future in Birmingham and then a few years later working with Tyler, the Creator, believing in the universe, thinking things into existence, and never putting boundaries on music.

Somewhere in space, this may all be happening right now.

Backstage with Dan Digs is a new music-centric interview series set in green rooms and iconic concert venues across the nation.

Our first episode (originally recorded in 2017) has me sitting down with none other than James Lavelle to talk about his UNKLE album The Road Pt 1, the legacy of Mo’ Wax, DJing around the world, and Phil Collins.

You can listen to this episode’s playlist of all the music mentioned in our conversation by searching for "Backstage with Dan Digs" on Spotify. You can also watch the video of our conversation at http://dandigs.com/tv.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
