State of Rhythm: Danilo Plessow (Motor City Drum Ensemble) with Craig Moerer, David Haffner, Brad Hales, Keith Worthy, and Tim Sweeney


Danilo Plessow AKA Motor City Drum Ensemble is on a constant mission to discover new sounds.

Drawing from an impressive record collection, the celebrated DJ and producer shares some of the music that inspires him every month here on Worldwide FM.

Danilo shares music found during his 3 week North American tour:

“I’ve been travelling the United States of America with my fellow record nerd Diggin’ Dave for the past 3 weeks, playing a couple of great shows and in the spare time going through record shops, locker units, warehouses, basements, mold-infested houses and more. On the way, i caught up with a couple of new and old friends, recording them on my little tascam portable.

I made the whole thing into some kind of tour diary podcast, playing records that i found there and in between those i put little snippets i recorded. You ll hear Craig Moerer & Records by Mail / David Haffner from Portland, Brad Hales (Peoples Records Detroit) & my old buddy Keith Worthy (Aesthetic Audio, Detroit) as well as mister Tim Sweeney (Beats in Space, New York) talking about politics, nightlife, record dealing etc.. And in the last third, Diggin Dave takes over for a Guest mix.”
