This show was 2nd in the global interview chart, 5th in the global indie chart, 10th in the global beats chart, 20th in the global soul chart and 24th in the global electronica chart.
LOOPS + DOTS is my brand new leftfield beats, electronic soul, and experimental sounds show broadcast on the first Tuesday of the month at 10am PT via http://dublab.com and archived along with all my other shows at http://mixcloud.com/dandigs.
The tenth installment of my Loops + Dots radio show on Dublab aired brand new hotness from Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard, math-rock-prog-jazz-band-of-the-moment Black Midi, the winning combo of Michael Kiwanuka & Tom Misch, and Brighton four-piece Yakul.
This week we also welcomed London-via-New Zealand artist, musician, and Kiwi D'Angelo Jordan Rakei to the show.
I caught up with Jordan for a chat backstage before his recent Hollywood Forever show in LA. We talked about the pho vs. ramen debate, getting recognition from Elton John, his house music alias Dan Kye, his kind-of-secret other music alias Frank Liin, and explaining the idea behind the cover art of his amazing new album, Origin.
