Dig Deep on Cowbell #5 with Marcel Vogel Aka Em Vee (Lumber Jacks In Hell / Intimate Friends)


For the 5th Dig Deep on Cowbell Radio we continue with our series of exclusive sets from the best DJs around the world.

Hot on the heels of John Morales, Boo Williams, Diesler and Fraser, for September's show I'm truly honoured to have Amsterdam based DJ and Producer Marcel Vogel aka Em Vee in the mix.

Marcel's exclusive mix for Dig Deep on Cowbell Radio cuts across disco, boogie, house and afro and proves why he is up there with the most in demand DJs out there.

As head honcho at Lumberjacks in Hell he's just released the massive Chicago Service EP featuring tracks from Rahaan Rah, Boogie Nite, DJ Cratebug, Jamie 3:26 and Mr Gene Hunt.



The Lumberjacks sister label, Intimate Friends, is due to release some proper twisted deepness from NY AK in the vein of Theo Parrish on September 30th. The first 500 copies come with limited and beautiful screen printed cover.

Dig Deep with Dave Prentice 190913 (Infektus)




On this week's show we are pleased to welcome some local Preston based talent into the studio.

Dave Prentice is a DJ and Producer with a vast taste for most forms of music. When Djing the vibe is usually both deep and dark be it Nu-Disco, House or Techno.

Dave has been collecting music for at least 20 years and started producing in the mid nineties with the use of old analogue synths, groove-boxes and drum machines.

He bought his first set of CDJs at the turn of the new century (having caught the bug of mixing some 5 years earlier from his good friend Darren Lucas aka Keyfun) before eventually going on to purchase his first set of Technics vinyl turntables 10 years later.

Clearly the original pioneers from Detroit have heavily influenced Dave's style, as have his close friends Darren Lucas aka Keyfun and Paul Cottam aka Cottam.

The Contact EP on the Spanish techno label Infektus is on the horizon with a release date very soon. Expect a taster during the show.

We will be getting to know a bit more about Dave in the first hour whilst PT digs deep in the house and techno boxes. At 9pm Dave takes over on the decks for an hour long DJ set of all things deep and dark.

We can't wait to hear what this learned gentleman of the underground dance world will pull out of the bag when we let him loose on the Dig Deep turntables.

Dig Deep with DJ Izrail (Chicago / Tradition) #5 050913


On this week's show we welcome back head of the Chicago Dig Deep Family and Tradition resident DJ Izrail Dizko.

Respected selector and all round DJ booth wrecker, Izrail has dropped another jacking one hour long set that would rip the roof off any discerning house loving club.

The exclusive mix represents the true underground sound of the Windy city as Izrail roots through his collection and plays from the heart.  Full of his now trademark vibes, but this time on an old school tip, he has dedicated this 5th Dig Deep mix to our friends at Lets go back in Glasgow.

Crafting his turntable skills since 1985, at the age of 15 DJ Izrail was opening parties for Dave D'Master Merritt & Vinny Divine in various Chicago based clubs.  Part of the house scene ever since, he's recently played alongside Roy Davis jr, Paul Johnson and Rahaan to name a few.

Currently a resident at Tradition, Izrail is putting on some great looking nights and is back behind the decks this Friday 7th September at the Underground Wonder Bar in Chicago.  The line up also features house veteran Glenn Underground, Boogie Nite and legendary vocalist Curtis Harman aka Cei Bei.  Check the event on Facebook for more info.

After that Tradition presents the 'Message In Our Music' night on 5th October featuring special guests Craig Alexander and Lady D.  Keep an eye on this guy, there's much more to come...
