Dan Digs on WNXP – Special Guest: Sampha – April 28, 2024

Welcome to my brand new two-hour live mix show on WNXP!

Every Sunday 5p-7p CT I spin a curated blend of electronic soul, leftfield indie, experimental beats, uptempo house grooves, and global sounds live from the studio.

Tune in each week for a special hand-picked mix of brand new music, classic deep cuts, guest DJ sets live in studio, and in-depth interviews with the world’s most innovative musicians.

For episode 1, we welcomed none other than Sampha to the show.

Originally recorded backstage a few weeks ago at Brooklyn Bowl Nashville before his performance, we talked about Sampha’s dad’s secret CD stash in his footstool, playing covers of Air, Stevie Wonder, Al Green (and Semisonic!), what he looks for in a collaboration, the theme of flying on his latest album LAHAI, connecting with people, who he’s listening to right now, how you can hear the weather in music, and the first thing he’s going to do when he gets back home to London.
