This Week's Guest Mix

If we were to make a list of some musical innovators in the UK underground over the last couple decades, Dego would make the cut every time. Working with Marc Mac under monikers like 4Hero, Manix and Tom N Jerry, he ventured into jungle and hardcore. Tek 9 brought out his hip-hop side, while his own label 2000 Black catalysed the birth of the West London broken beat scene.

Recently, his output has focussed more on collaborations with Kaidi Tatham on Eglo Records, but this year also sees the release of his first solo LP since 2011. To mark the milestone, Dego has put together a 30 minute mix of global rhythms, soul, disco and broken beat. Essential listening from one of London’s greats.

More Things Stay The Same LP is out now on 2000 Black and available from Bandcamp. Catch Dego at Dimensions Festival 2015. Photo credit: Lewis Khan.
