Today’s guest is often cited as one of the originators of hip-hop as we know it today. Having developed drum sampling for the genre, his unique production style has become synonymous with classic hip-hop.
This season finale features the oldest interview in the Diggin’ The Crates collection which was recorded in 2015. But as this is the last episode of the season, we wanted to end with a special interview. The interview in this form has never been heard until now.
We hope you have enjoyed Season 1 of DTC with Chali 2na, Romesh Ranganathan, Damu The Fudgemunk, Grieves, Eothen Alapatt b.k.a. Egon, and Marley Marl. We will be back in the autumn with Season 2, which is already in the making.
