Walt Dickerson - This Is

After a bit of time off, we’re back in the saddle with more Dig A Little mixes and first up we have a little hour of killer Jazz sounds from London’s DJ Harv. Host of the Feeling Good Show on PointBlank.FM. as well as in demand DJ around town (and further afield – he’s just come back from Montenegro!), Harv blessed us with a guest set at our last Camden Dig at The Forge, Camden. A lovely selection (if we do say so ourselves), it featured music from Walt Dickerson, Lamont Johnson, Woody Shaw, Stafford James and Tito Puente to name but a few. He certainly had the bar rocking on the night and now you can (re)discover it by the wonders of Mixcloud.

As for us, we’re back at The Forge this Sunday with more live Jazz from Jessica Lauren and friends, as well as a guest DJ set from Adrian Magrys of Lanquidity Records. Pop down if you’re in town!
