You Should Listen to Our Indie Hip-Hop Countdown Show on Dash Radio


When DJ Skee launched his online radio network, Dash Radio, he wanted to create a place that could play music major radio stations wouldn't touch. As he said, “Radio was the first social network, the first time people really listened together. And we want to bring that feeling back, but with more freedom than what FM and satellite can offer."

What kind of music is he talking about? about the best in new, truly independent hip-hop? That's exactly why Dash and their lndependent Grind channel have teamed up with The DJBooth to bring our Top 10 Indie Hip-Hop Countdown to the radio. Here's what that really means: every other week, I'll talk about how awesome my beard is, and also play the best-of-the-best selections from our Indie Hip-Hop chart. It's going down Wendesdays at 2 EST, along with a reprise show on Fridays at 2 EST. 

You should listen, unless you're wack, in which case don't even bother. And to if you need to cop the Dash Radio app for iPhone or Android, just click on those linky-links.
