Zane Lowe | The Strombo Show

January 12, 2016 at 10:43 am  •  Posted in RADIO by

The Strombo Show runs the gamut this Sunday night, keeping the spirit of radio alive by delivering the best records in the best order. It’s a show for music lovers by music lovers, ranging over three hours of commercial-free music to honour both old and new.

George Stroumboulopoulos will visit Apple Music’s Beats 1 studios in Los Angeles to dig through musical crates of the mind with Zane Lowe. We’ll also share an intimate performance from Toronto noisemakers Dilly Dally, delivering a full band performance in the House of Strombo.

Zane Lowe is heralded as special creative and lead anchor of Beats 1’s 24-hour radio station. In a very special on-location conversation, George visits Lowe’s Los Angeles studio to explore Lowe’s musical journey as a boy in Auckland, New Zealand, to finding his influential voice on BBC Radio 1, where he championed emerging artists like Arctic Monkeys, Jake Bugg and interviewed everyone from U2 to Daft Punk.

Dilly Dally arguably crafted the best rock record of 2015. Founded by Katie Monks and Liz Ball in high school — bonding over the music of the Pixies and the sorrow of Kurt Cobain — they’ve earned immediate acclaim from the blogosphere for both their heavily melodic debut album, Sore, and their high-octane live performances. In the House, Dilly Dally will crank several tracks from that album and cover Drake’s “Know Yourself” in our loudest, sweatiest session yet.

We’ll also drop an exclusive worldwide premiere off Saul Williams’supcoming album: Martyr Loser King. He is the poet laureate of hip-hop, known for his blend of poetry and music, emerging through the scene in the 1998 film Slam. Since earning the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance that year, he released six albums that have featured production by Rick Rubin and Trent Reznor, five books of poetry and has starred in the Broadway musical Holler If You Hear Me, based on the life and poetry of 2Pac.
