Dig Deep Mix Series - #6 Shaun Funkyginger Foran (Regrooved)

We continue the Dig Deep Mix Series with an exclusive mix from crate digger Shaun 'Funkyginger' Foran. Shaun knows a thing or two about sought after 45s from funk and soul music's rich history. His musical knowledge is the kind that can only be gained through years of experience routing through dusty shelves, and his trusted box of 7"s is home to both classic breaks and little heard gems.

Ever keen to share his love for the music, Shaun has played at the likes of Beatherder, Solfest, The Vintage Festival, North Lancs Soul Festival, and Reboot at Night and Day in Manchester. Shaun is co-host of Regrooved which takes place at The Golden Lion in Lancaster which takes place on the last Saturday of every month.

Dig Deep Mix Series - #5 John Tree (The Perfumed Garden)

We continue the Dig Deep Mix Series with an exclusive mix from DJ, percussionist, and occasional producer, John Tree. One of the chief weeders in The Perfumed Garden at The Beat-Herder Festival, John has been involved since the early days of 2007.

Each year The Perfumed Garden's perfectly formed dome plays host to some of the best acts and packs in the revelers until sunrise. Both big names and hand picked up'n comers rub shoulders throughout the weekend, and the vibe that is created is a testament to John and his cohorts programming skills.

Over the year's John has been a guest many times on the Dig Deep Radio Show. His eclectic mixes always come in from the leftfield and introduce me to something new. This time John picks through brazilian jazz, deep house, techno and electronica via indie dance and nu disco. Never one to conform to the norm, this is possibly the freshest mix up you'll hear all year.
