Dig Deep on Cowbell Radio #25 with Paul Thornton (Itch / Dig Deep)


This month we continue to bring you all that's good in the world of music. No special guest this time around, so you can expect 3 hours of hand selected gems covering old school jazz to new school techno and everything in between...

We start out with the newer disco and house stuff before digging deep in the funk & soul crates and rounding things off with a section of chilled beauties.

Dig Deep Recommends: Tom Boogizm - Pariah-Caste (Vol. 2)


So Tom Boogizm's new tape is out and it's one of those that makes you sit back and listen. It's called 'I Can't Sleep Because My Mind Won't Switch Off' and as you would expect it's beautifully murky, subterranean and downright odd music that stinks of late night sessions - I love it!

Perfect for those disenchanted souls that feel the music scene is ready for something fresh, to my ears this sit's somewhere between Burial, Flying Lotus, and the LPs by LNRDCROY and Linkwood on Firecracker in terms of landmark material that will stand the test of time.

This 2nd volume in the series is limited to 50 copies and is only available via BoomkatPiccadilly Records and Discogs. Check the review of Volume 1 that came out last year here. Surely it won't be too long before someone picks these up for a vinyl release.

Cream Of The Crop - Summer Grooves Vinyl Chart


New vinyl chart with an arm full of gems from the last couple of month's plus some forthcoming must haves.

The Number 1 slot goes to the essential Amerika 7" from Kai Alce. Limited to 300 copies this is already as rare as hens teeth. Respect to the Jelly Roll Soul DJs for putting me on that!

Number 2 sees Esa dropping an afro-disco bomb straight out of Kenya on the Highlife World Series. Whilst Number 3 goes to a previous 'Dig Deep New Producer Of The Month' - it's Love Drop Edits debut 12" on Disco Deviance and you may have heard me playing  B Side track The Buzz on the show... Bomb.

We have a rare re-entry at Number 4 in the guise of Maalem Mahmoud Guina, Floating Points and James Holden's forthcoming 12" on Eglo. I have heard there was a pressing issue so the release date was put back. Number 5 goes to Deetron for his slamming The Believer track. Right place, right time, this will go off.

Soul heads head straight for Number 6 for the cripplingly good Gimme A Little Action by Sam Dees on a Kent 7" reissue. The repress of Rahaan Edits vol 3 flew out of Juno in a day but now have them back in stock. Piccadilly Records have listed it with a later release date so let's hope there will be a few to go around - the first pressing is now £50 on Discogs!!

Hip Hop heads will not be disappointed by the new Slum Village Yes! LP. Harvey Sutherland is back with another winner, this time on MCDE. And we round off the Top 10 with PTA aka Pittsburgh Track Authority Edits #3 who have delivered instant winner versions of Step By Step's 'I Always Wanted To Be In A Band' and Joe Thomas's version of  'Lowdown'.

And that's just the Top 10. There are another 20 more gems to go at. Start the player or follow the links for the full Top 30.
