Dig Deep with Fraser (Trailer Trash) 030512
On this week's show we welcome back semi-regular guest and all round dusty crate digging supremo Fraser aka Fraser Funk.
Lovingly described by the Trailer Trash crew as their secret weapon, Fraser is also a resident at Country Club, one of the Vinyl Miners, and a musician in his own right. As well as having djed at Leeds clubs The Wardrobe and Sela bar, and recently working with the Best Joined Up Crew, Fraser has played every year at the mighty Beat-Herder Festival.
An oracle on world music, Fraser has been collecting funk, soul, jazz, afro, latin and library music for two and a half decades, amassing an amazing musical knowledge over the years, and comes with a pedigree that can only be rivalled by the likes of good friend Sean P...
Fraser has played alongside the likes of Giles Peterson, DJ Spinna, Andy Smith, DJ Format and Madlib, as well as supporting acts such as Marlena Shaw, Quantic Soul Orchestra & Alice Russell, Azymuth and Roy Ayers - regularly dropping tunes that make these highly respected DJs and artists stop and ask 'what is this record?'.
We are always in awe of Fraser's killer selections and this week we have him live in the studio for a chat and a root through his 45s box, before he takes to the decks for this weeks mini-mix. Tapers be ready, do not miss this extra special and exclusive set!!!
