Dego (London/NYC) on the Main Ingredient 6/28!

Very glad to be a part of the many things going on surrounding the release of Dego‘s A Wha’ Him Deh Pon? album this week.

If you are in NYC, be sure to stop by the album release party tonight at the SubMercer.

Also be sure to download the “It’s All Over the Place” mixtape, mixed by (past Main Ingredient guest) DJ Brainchild showcasing music from across Dego’s impressive career.

And last but definitely not least, Dego will join me Monday night in the East Village Radio studio to talk about his new album and share a guest DJ set as well.

About Dego:

Dego is an award-winning producer, a widely recognized artist and one half of the internationally acclaimed 4hero. After years of boundary-pushing work during which his restless musical vision heavily influenced the evolution of underground electronica and electro soul, Dego is name checked as the pioneer of drum ‘n’ bass and the prophet of the nu-soul/jazz movement. He has worked with the likes of Jill Scott, MadLib, Goldie, Georgia Anne Muldrow, J*Davey, Ursula Rucker, Digable Planets and jazz legends Roy Ayers and Larry Mizell.

Considered a cornerstone and revered by many to be one of London’s most progressive musical visionaries all the while heavily influencing the evolution of dance music. Dego has recorded in almost every musical style imaginable, pushing the boundaries steadily from the past to future.

He is also a songwriter, musician, DJ and founder of the 2000black label and equally named music group 2000black. Other artists on the label’s roster include DKD and Silhouette Brown, who have toured worldwide. The label’s latest release includes Dego’s highly anticipated debut solo LP “A Wha’ Him De Pon?,” a collection of songs reflecting his range of musical loves from hip-hop and techno to dub and jazz.

In addition Dego is also known as Mr. GoodGood, he founded the club night Co-op with his partners I.G. Culture, Mark Force, Phil Asher and Demus in 2000. Co-op quickly became home to sounds of progressive soulful and bass music while dominating London’s nightlife for five years.

Today, Dego lives in New York and continues to be at the forefront, producing forward-thinking music unrestrained by genres and tempos while exploring all realms of music. He widens in almost every style imaginable blurring genres to create innovative and compelling new musical amalgams. Whether drawing on jazz, electronica, or soul, Dego’s music always has a common thread: an irresistible groove.

Mar (Amsterdam) on The Main Ingredient 6/21!

Mar is in town this week making his NYC debut at Rockwood Music Hall on June 26th @ 3pm. He will also return to EVR studio tonight to perform a song or two live as well as talk to DJ Eko (who will be covering for me) about his Mar Variations project, his forthcoming projects with Full Crate and FS Green and his debut solo EP coming later this year.
