Dig A Little E7 (July 2015) – Digger Dan

Black Blowing Flowers - Human Glow

As we approach this weekend’s Dig A Little event in Camden at The Forge, we continue to look back at last month’s mixes from Forest Gate. Next up we have resident selector diggerdan who dropped a suitably nice set late on in the day. Flitting between the rare psychedelic funk of Black Blowing Flowers, the languid soul of Ned Doheny and the Latin Jazz fusion of Sail-Joia, Dan kicked things off sweetly before easing into some perennial Saturday afternoon favourites. Thanks for listening.

Kool & The Gang - Wild & Peaceful

Dig A Little NW1 (June 2015) – Mr Boogie…

Tito Rodriguez - Live At Birdland

Latin specialist and all round excellent DJ Mr Boogie AKA The Vinyl Junkie of meltingpot fame joined us at our Camden session at the end of June, and he certainly didn’t disappoint setting the Forge alight with a tough and dance floor friendly mix of hardcore Latin rhythms. Dipping into the explosive sounds of early 60’s New York and beyond, his set perfectly articulated the point where Latin music meets Jazz, blending tunes from the likes of Tito Rodriguez, Machito, José Mangual Jr, Beny More and the Alegre All Stars, while even finding time to include a pair of traces from French vocal jazz troupe Le Double Six. In fact we loved it so much, we invited him back this Sunday for more of the same, as he drops some tunes before, after and in-between the live band sets. We hope you enjoy the music and thank you for listening!

TRACKLIST
1. Tito Rodriguez – Summertime
2. Beny Moré – Maracaibo
3. Arsenio Rodriguez – Hang On Sloopy
4. Machito – El Guardia Con El Tolete
