Dig Deep with Chris Da Mentalist (Edit / Jaegerossa) # 2 281113

Chris Da Mentalist, one half of Jaegerossa, will be joining me for this Thursday's Dig Deep On Preston FM for the second time.

With launch of  The Edit with Phil Rose & Chris Da Mentalist Radio Show, the Edit at The Imperial and Baku Lounge events that have had CJ Mackintosh, Graeme Park and Grant Nelson as headliners, and with remixes in the bag for the likes of Lenny Fontana, Lisa Millet on Musol, and Dave RedSoul's Playmore label, 2013 has been a busy year for the Preston based DJ / Producer / Presenter.

During the first hour Chris will be telling us more about what he has been up to, airing a couple of his own productions and chatting about the forthcoming events he is involved with featuring Joey Negro, Greg Wilson and K-Klass.

Around 9pm Chris will be taking over the decks for an hour long mini-mix featuring some Hacienda classics, a Jaegerossa edit or two and some newish tracks from this year.

Dig Deep on Cowbell Radio #7 with Boogie Nite (Lumberjacks In Hell / Glenview Records Inc)

On November's show on Cowbell Radio I'm made up to be able to bring you another exclusive mix from Chicago based DJ and Producer Boogie Nite.

We aired Boogie Nite's first Dig Deep mix back in December 2012 and was blown away with his selections of pure discofunk killers.  Little did we know at the time that the man was working away in the studio producing his own edits of those rare and sought after gems.

Less than two years later Boogie Nite has had a series of excellent releases on two of the world's hottest record labels in 2013.  Check our review of the Chicago Service EP or follow the links below for more info.

As a warm up for the Preston based Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club event, PT will be dropping Funk & Soul classics throughout the show.  Between 8.30pm and 9pm we will be airing an exclusive preview of the forthcoming Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show LP Vol 2. 9 tracks, back to back, all selected by the man.

Part 1 of Boogie Nite's Cowbell Mix goes out at 9pm, with Part 2 going out at 10pm. That leaves us just enough time for a couple of roll calls and the Global Gig Guide between the mixes.  As usual I will line up a few more Dig Deep selections to take us through to 11pm. So another packed show then...
