Another live podcast of Discovery 2 live performances finally released! You’ll hear live performances and interviews from Cold Fever who play a new style of reggae and alternative urban from J. Appiah and his band. We also have interviews and some album tracks from Swiss singer and multi-instrumentalist Heidi Happy, and alternative pop/folk/jazz artist Helene Greenwood.
A big thanks to our woman-on-the-ground for this event Alex Marini – she did a wonderful job filling in for Claire while she was away and we’d have her back in a minute!More about the artists Cold Fever
Producer/songwriter/rapper, Bhumeet Kala-Lee was fed on a musical diet of reggae, jazz and soul by his Jamaican father and Indian mother. His imagination was harnessed by hip-hop and UK grime, drawing the young radical to a fondness for storytelling through rhyming couplets. ‘Desi Reggae’ was born through fusing, mixing, and synergizing the tones of his musical influences.
He’s shared stages with Example, Wretch 32, Skepta, Lawson, The Wanted and Olly Murs. He has also collaborated with artists such as Beenie Man, Aswad, Freddie McGregor, The PropheC, and Jenna Garcia (songwriter for Britney Spears, Cassie, Ja-Rule and Lloyd) to name a few.J.Appiah
Hailing from Hackney East London, J.Appiah is a fast-rising, urban alternative, singer/songwriter who is truly making an impact on the UK scene with his nonchalant musicality, understated intelligent lyricism and touching vocals.

Longtime CCMixter user Ashwan, originally from Liverpool, says he recently was “seduced by fellow CCMixter Ditto Ditto’s remix of Snowflakes ‘The Light'” when he put together today’s featured Daily Dose track. Conjoined with this epiphany in track creation, he says that he was also “inspired by the anniversary of the Berlin wall coming down recently and how that can function as a metaphor for the groundbreaking work that everyone involved in the music site ccmixter is doing.”
In addition to mixing the music you are hearing here today, Ashwan is a visual and multimedia artist with works in private and corporate collections worldwide. The sample here that accompanies the track is entitled ‘Electric Relaxation’ and you can find much more on his artist website below. The user profiles for both Ashwan and Ditto Ditto at CCMixter are also included if you’d like to see what projects they’ve worked on.Download Mauerspechte (the light) ditto ditto HypeMachine
A Roadhouse Rewind awaits: #264 from 2010. I'll be back next week with a new hour of the finest blues you've never heard.
The 264th Roadhouse provides an escape hatch from the world. It provides a means to move away from trouble and difficulty and into a far better state of mind. Toni Lynn Washington, Wayne Baker Brooks, Coco Montoya, Teresa James, and Johnnie Bassett open the door to that comfortable world and keep the tough stuff at bay. Pass through the escape hatch for another hour of the finest blues you've never heard - the 264th Roadhouse.
Today’s feature on the Dose comes from the group’s collaborative effort on BFW Records ‘Lakewaves Vol. 2‘, the second half to its counterpart, Pt.1, building and expanding on its own musical ideas.
Lakewaves Vol. 2 is a brilliant fusion of scratchy tape loops, guitars and smooth synthesizers set to jazzy, downtempo rhythms.Download Rundown HypeMachine

Since the late 2014 release of Arizona, Doster’s first solo album in 18 years, the record has established a substantial foothold in his home base of Austin.
The recognition has been a long time coming for this songwriter, producer, and guitarist, whose musical story starts in 1982, when he was a young man on top of the world, recording his debut album with James Honeyman-Scott of The Pretenders producing it.

How long has it been since this happened? Hmm? Two podcasts in one week! All this listening to my podcasts from 10 years ago got me thinking about doing more… so I did!!
No live podcast tonight I’m afraid. But there is this one… this one was recorded last night. Dr Nic was out last night and Edinburgh Man Junior seemed to be rather soundly asleep, so I thought I’d record the podcast 24 hours early. It also seems like Dr Nic and I haven’t had a night in for ages, so if I did a pre-record then we’d have Thursday evening to ourselves. I realise that sounds romantic, but to be quite honest those episodes of House of Cards aren’t going to watch themselves.

10 years of podcasting… i’m still here! This episode I reflect on the first episode, and how it’s been over the last 10 years!! thank you for listening
It’s happening. I’m getting addicted to coffee again. Look! I’ve got a full card of stamps from Artisan Roast so the next one is free! This is how they get you…
Earlier on this week the soundtrack to my morning coffee in Artisan was Django Reinhardt, and as a result I felt compelled to play some on the podcast. If you’re not aware of the “78rpm and Cylinder Music Collection” at archive.org I suggest you check it out. There’s a goldmine of the most incredible music from the first half of the 20th century. Apart from the crackles and somewhat lo-fi recording they still sound fresh to this day. I could get lost in there…

Sally Crosby, a 22 year-old independent singer-songwriter from Powys, Wales has just released her debut EP ‘Bucket of Leaves’ in August of 2014. Today’s featured acoustic folk-pop influenced track ‘Comet’ is from the new release and is a beautiful track, honest and raw, a promise of great things to come.
Sally’s musical background started off at an early age, a violin and piano student since the age of 5, eventually picking up other instruments like clarinet, harp, and guitar. Later in life she studied music and creative writing at university around North Wales, graduating in 2013. It was here she played violin for North Wales based folk-rock band, The Rambling Pilgrims.
2014 was a big year for the developing talent, seeing her touring around the UK festival scene as an up and coming act and the release of the first EP. Last year also saw her playing the same festival with high profile British artists like Tom Odell, Frank Turner, Razorlight, and John Newman.Download Comet HypeMachine
Today’s Dose is from that EP, and Dog Named Bart features contributions from John Vanderslice, Debbie Neigher and Magik*Magik Orchestra.
