Dig Deep with Mikey D.O.N 201011

This weeks show features a a very special Dig Deep sound-clash with Mikey D.O.N (Krispy 3 / Night Of The Living Dread).

Mikey aka Microphone D.O.N was a key player in the original Chorley based crew Krispy aka Krispy 3 - arguably one of the best, and least acknowledged, British rap groups of all time.

The crew consisting of Mikey D.O.N and Mr Wiz came via their father's sound system, Mellow Tone, and went on to release records packed with wit and charisma on Kold Sweat and US indie Bomb.

As well demonstrating his MCing skills with Jinx In Dub, Mikey is a formidable DJ in his own right and has amassed a superb record collection full of rare and sought after gems.

(Fast forward to 2013 and Mikey's 'Night Of The Living Dread' night has been filling the Band On The Wall in Manchester for time. The night that promises Dub to Dancehall, Roots Rockers to Ragga via Lovers Rock went monthly as of March 2013.)

Well known for not taking any prisoners in the DJ booth, Mikey laid down the challenge to one of his infamous sound-clashes and we agreed the arena would be set on reggae funk soul jazz disco afro vibes...

Dig Deep with Nick the Greek (Zunday Zocial) 061011

This weeks show features Blackpool based soul enthusiast Nick Street aka Nick the Greek.  Big friends with legendary New York DJ and disco producer John Morales, Nick knows a thing or too about music with soul.

In his spare time away from running his own DJ Agency and holding down a DJ residency at Zunday Zocial (Bar 137), Nick balances his time between Freelance Journalism and digging for sought after soul, disco and boogie records.  Very much an enthusiast as much as a DJ, what Nick doesn't know about the roots of quality music isn't worth knowing.
