Get ready for Diggin Dave!
He's the man! But only complete with his lovely wife Klaartje. And when he is able to play bicycle race on a computer as much as he can.
When I first saw the amazing sales lists from Diggin’ Dave on Soul-Source I thought he is an old cool good-looking black guy cause of his avatar picture. First time I saw him in reality was a bit deflating cause he turned out to be young, white and good-looking. After a little chit-chat emotions ran free and there was time for love. What a great guy!
Now to something completely different, namely the records: When he moved to Ghent to study he passed a record store, was mysteriously drawn in and was immediately hooked. So badly in fact that he had to start selling some records to fund his expensive habit.
He likes all music styles from delta blues to ghetto tech and within the broad Soul spectrum. He tries to find the good things in all genres instead of specialising in one thing. He tries to make it as fluent as possible but there might be some Boogaloo, Funk, Latin, Modern, Crossover, Disco, Northern and everything in between. He doesn't care too much about rarity, as long as it gets the feet moving he's a happy man. To get him really excited just give him a Julientje (with a Glennie burger on the side).
I think nearly everybody bought records from him in the past but not many saw him DJing although he already played at Bilbao Weekender, Filthy Soul, Movin’ On, some local things and of course their own Sweet! Alldayer.
His current Top 5 are (in no particular order):
Mr. Lucky - Born to Love You
Black Exotics - I Hate Hate
Popcorn - Song for You
Johnny Raymond Quintet - Malagueña
The Soul Injection - Stay off The Moon
