Dig Deep with Mikey D.O.N #2 040413




On this show we are proud as to welcome back Mikey D.O.N. into the studio for the 2nd time.

Mikey aka Microphone D.O.N, key player in the original Chorley based crew Krispy aka Krispy 3, and a formidable DJ in his own right has amassed a superb record collection full of rare and sought after gems.

With more appearances at clubs and festivals across the UK than we can list here, Mikey is ever in demand as people want to experience one of the North West's chief selectas in action.

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.

Mikey's 1st appearance on the Dig Deep Radio Show was back in October 2011 when he challenged PT to a 1 on 1 soundclash... and won!  So this time we are going to let the man with more records than most loose on the decks for a 45 minute mini-mix....

Dig Deep with Walter Jones (Under The Shade / Permanent Vacation / DFA)


On this week's show we are honoured to Dig Deep with DJ and producer Walter Merlin Jones.

Roots
Born on July 16th, 1968 in Shreveport, Louisiana. Walter's musical background goes as far back as three generations. Both of Walter's grandfathers played as a session musician for famous acts.  His Father is an accomplished guitarist and his Mother is a classically trained vocalist.

During the 1970's Walters Father worked for a Public Relations firm where he learnt about editing Ads on reels as well as early production techniques. In 1978 walter bought his first record - Electric Light Orchestra "Out of the Blue". Disco was his favorite music at the time.

During the 1980's Walter visited New York for the first time and in 1982 he was exposed to Break dancing and Hip Hop culture. "I got into everything from New Wave to No Wave (like the group Gong) to Industrial to Euro-pop to New Romantic to Boogie Down Bronx style Hip Hop to Soulful Synth Funk in the early 80's"

Cream Of The Crop - March 2013 Chart part 2


From the startlingly fresh techno of Martyn's 'What is Room 101' to the sweet laid back soulful funk of The Rugged Nuggets 7"... this chart features a wedge of new releases from disco to dubstep, hip hop to jazz, and garage to afrobeat, topped with some deep twisted house.
