Disco Scratch - Digging 4 Victory

As with my previous post about new stuff going on at Disco Scratch this is a little piece about LG's fantastic Digging 4 Victory project which incorporates a podcast once a month (initially via DSR).

The ideology of Digging 4 Victory (explained here) is simple - to re-use music, to give new life to discarded vinyl and place it in a new context or even just a new owner. Participants are encouraged to go 'digging' in record shops, charity shops, car boots, recycling centres....anywhere where you might find old records and produce a compilation or 'mixtape' which their new-found treasure.
These results will then be the basis of the D4V Podcast.

Have a look at LG's previous Podcasts (here's Show #2 for example) and you'll see a wonderful visual example of what a typical playlist is like. Having said that, each show's playlist is not made in stone as by the very nature of digging you never know quite what you'll unearth. However you should expect to hear funk, jazz and hip hop.
The topics of the different sources of finding music ranges from 'Digging In The Pockets' (paid-for stuff), 'Digging In The Crates' (songs inspired by watching Red Bull Academy videos), 'Cheap As Chips' (Discogs finds) as well as internet-searching ('Digging Through The Net').

So far the Podcasts have been the fruits of LG's own searching so anyone else wanting to get involve is certainly more than welcome.

Get involved!
