Fresh Soup 036: DJ Simm, J Dilla Special
Season 1, Ep. 36
James Dewitt Yancey—better known as J Dilla, or Jay Dee—was a quiet genius taken to soon, dying of a cardiac arrest after a long illness with a rare blood disease. He had just turned 32. Described as "jazz's latest great innovator" and 'the Mozart of hip-hop', among other plaudits, and hailed by the biggest names in the scene, Yancey himself remained humble and shunned the spotlight.With production credits for all from De La Soul to Erykah Badu, his solo work remained unheralded in his lifetime; posthumously he is now regarded as hip hop's greatest ever beat-maker. In a Fresh Soup special, DJ Simm pays homage to a modern musical magician.

Fresh Soup 029: Steve Mayo
Season 1, Ep. 29
As the head of sound at London's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Steve Mayo is more used to creating sound effects like angry dogs barking stage left than taking the sonic limelight himself. Putting his craft to use for something a little different, Steve makes his Fresh Soup debut with an eclectic mash up of electro that tips its hat to '90s indie and the great Mr Weatherall. Bravo.
