Dig Deep with DJ Izrail (Chicago / Tradition) #4 300513

We have some exciting bits and pieces on this week's show plus another special guest from Chicago.

Expect the first play of a new track from Simba, a TK Disco classic, some deepness from Marcellus Pittman, a gem from Jorge Ben, a bomb from Donnie, house to die for from Terry Hunter, newness from Soundstream, plus DJ Izrail Dizko returns to Dig Deep in the mini-mix.

Head of the Chicago Dig Deep Family, it's Izrail's 4th mix for the show and we're really starting to hear his trademark vibe and sound now as he cuts through those rare tracks that make you jack and always leave you wanting that bit more...

Dig Deep on Cowbell Radio # 2 with Fraser (Trailer Trash / Vinyl Miners)

This coming Saturday evening I'm back at Cowbell Radio with special guest DJ Fraser aka Fraser Funk (Trailer Trash / Vinyl Miners / Bamboleo) in the mini-mix.

An all round record guru, what Fraser doesn't know about music isn't worth knowing and he has rustled up one of his exclusive killer sets for us. 

I'll have a wedge of my favourite tracks from the crates of funk hip hop brazilian disco reggae soul afrobeat boogie deep house and techno.

In the studio I'll be joined by a fellow Cowbell presenter, John Tree (The Perfumed Garden), who will be digging in his playlist to give us a flavour of his show.

Around 9.30pm I'll play The Listeners Choice - this month it's A Tribe Called Quest special. You can vote for your fave Tribe classic on the Dig Deep on Cowbell Radio Facebook page.

Dig Deep with K Alexi Shelby #2 (K Klassik / Transmat / DJ International) 160513


We are truly honored to post this podcast featuring Chicago House Legend K'Alexi Shelby in the mix for one hour dropping exclusives back to back!

It's K's 2nd time on the Dig Deep Radio Show and he is easily one of our all time favourite DJ's to come out of Chicago. To say K is prolific is an understatement and we are always in awe of his past and current output. This guy IS house and his sets epitomize the real sound of house music. A true inspiration.

Kicking things off is our man PT with a pile of new vinyl - tracks include a new summer anthem from Watson and that Stripped and Chewed bomb from Chris Grant aka Simba!

Check the post here for K's first appearance for a raft of information on the man.
