Podcast 139: Doc Daneeka
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Okay, we'll admit it. In the past few months, XLR8R has gone mad for Welsh producer Doc Daneeka. He's been profiled in our Bubblin' section, his Deadly Rhythm EP kicked off new Ramp sub-label PTN in style, and his own Ten Thousand Yen imprint is bringing even more high-quality, percussion-heavy funky to the table. Don't believe us? Check out our preview of the label's first release. At this rate, we're going to crown Doc Daneeka the King of Wales by year's end. As part of the ongoing coronation, the young artist has been selected to put together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast series, and, as expected, he's delivered a true scorcher stuffed with rattling drums and punchy low end, not to mention a number of new and unreleased tunes. Give it a listen and then mark your calendars for June 4, as we've invited Doc Daneeka to make his first US appearance at our monthly TURRBOTAX® party alongside Trouble & Bass' Star Eyes and incredible Brooklyn outfit Blondes. See? We told you that we loved this guy.
