Dig Deep with Dave D'Master Merritt (No Name) #2 181012

With this month's guest mix, the Dig Deep Chicago Family take a little break from dropping recent house cuts and sure fire disco killers that worked the scene back in the day to bring us a straight up mix of 80's classic House bombs from legendary producer and DJ Dave D'Master Merritt.

Dave has been producing tracks since the late 80s, and his group 'No Name' was at the forefront of house from the off.  If you are not already in the know, a quick gander at the write up for the show back in July 2012 featuring Dave's first mix will give you a crash course in the gems he has worked on to date.

I am particularly honored this time around as Dave has put together this mix exclusively for the Dig Deep Radio Show in the UK.  It's fair to say Dave's 2nd mix for the show isn't one of those tired and tested 'back to the old school' type things, this is a celebration of the early sounds of House that changed the world forever...

Dave has dedicated the mix to the Letsgoback Wayback club night up in Glasgow, and to all the fans that love classic early House Music.

On 13th October Dave Merritt is DJing at The biggest house music concert and dance party Chicago has ever seen - History Of House Music.  The line up features 25 top notch DJs and live acts including Frankie Knuckles, Kenny Jamin Jason, CZR, Fast Eddie, Keith Nunnally aka JM Silk, Mike Dunn and Terry Hunter to name just a few - check the flyer at the top of this post for the full line up.

Trainspotters, tapers, house veterans and disco divas be ready, this show will not be repeated!

As always PT will be dropping an hours worth of cuts old and new - freshly dug from the Dig Deep crates.  Big up as always to DJ Izrail head of the Dig Deep Chicago family for the hook up.
