Carhartt WIP Radio Oktober 2020

Dego 2000BLACK Radio Show



This month Carhartt WIP Radio welcomes Dennis „Dego“ McFarlane and his genre-defying label 2000BLACK. The British music producer and DJ is best known as one-half of influential duo 4hero in unity with producer Mark "Marc Mac" Clair. He was also part of the seminal jungle and hardcore label Reinforced – a platform where Dego released solo works as Tek 9 or again together with Marc Mac as the prolific breakbeat and hardcore pro-ject Tom And Jerry.

Today Dego is fully dedicated to his 1998 launched label 2000BLACK, that had a major in-fluence on the London based Broken beat scene. Until today he runs 2000BLACK ceaseless under the guidance of the Roy Ayers words „Think about the future, think about change’, releasing peerless music rooted in funk, soul, jazz, hip hop, house and beyond.

For Carhartt WIP Radio, Dego dipped deep into the 2000BLACK label catalogue, to expand our listeners palette. So get ready for some broken grooves, deeper shades of soul and lots of funk out of the 2000Black universe!

As always, we also sat down with this month’s host in order to gain a deeper understanding of his ramified creative cosmos.
