In the coming months we shall be transmitting live from the DAILY DIGGERS record dungeon. We aim to bring you the funkiest, most raw Hip Hop sounds, together with a selection of killer breaks & beats - possibly the hardest to ever hit your eardrums!
From now on, you will be able to take a step inside the DIGGERS' world - find out who these guys really are, hear their beat-digging tips, learn how they make their beats, dwell on some hip hop history, plus other hip hop related paraphenalia.
The DAILY DIGGERS - the name says it all. Always out on the hunt for another fix of dope (beats) on vinyl. Two 30-something dudes, both crazy hip hop fools on the same hip hop mission...to be the freshest and to have the freshest! You may have seen these cats lurking at your local record store or charity shop - sneaker freak and golden era addict KID DYNOMITE, and the ever-dusty BEAT DETECTIVE, king of the bargain-bin breakbeat! These veterans of the Hip Hop game are London based record fiends and beatmakers, and have travelled the world in pursuit of the hip hop culture, and on the unt for the holy grails. Attending Rocksteady Crew Anniversaries in NY through the 90's, Battle-of-the-Year breaking championships in Europe, & hosting various radio shows over the years, as well as making up the numbers at real Hip Hop jams across the globe. To say they got it bad is an understatement!
Their obsessive nature has lead to a mountain of wax being visible for miles across the East London skyline, and the Diggers now live under it's shadow with just an MPC and SP1200 for company. If it's hip hop related then they are down for it.
So here it is - the DAILY DIGGERS blog. We're gonna give you an overdose on some seriously fresh Hip Hop vinyl, let you watch the DIGGERS make some RAW beats, & maybe even take a trip through breakland with the Beat Detective on some serious kick & snare business. There will be some hints on digging for cheap beats, and maybe a peek at some crazy sneaker collections whilst we are at it. Hold on tight it's gonna be a bumpy ride!
All in the name of HIP HOP y'all!!
So shall we let the fun begin...?
