Way back when Groovement started on Unity Radio in 2007, I asked Diesler, then a recently added resident of Manc institution Roots Before Branches, to drop into the studio for an interview and guest selection as I’d dug his funk on Tru Thoughts and Freestyle. It’s a pleasure to welcome him back.
In 2012 he was exec producer on the Hannah and the Tastemakers album on Record Kicks, plus pushed his own Monster Sneaker project. Most recently he’s remixed Sheffield’s Renegade Brass Band and put out a limited 45 on Buried Treasure. Somehow, he’s found the time to squeeze a little Groovement mix in for us. Enjoy.
(While you’re here, check out last week’s podcast from Wah Wah 45s’ Neil Bopperson. A suitable accompaniment.)
