VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Midcoast Records
Our Music Director, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
Today, Ben sat down with some folks from Midcoast Collective – Dahlia, DJ Megadon, .Wav and DizzyRandoms – to talk about their newly formed record label, Midcoast Records. Dahlia’s album “Sounds Of My Soul” dropped last summer. DJ Megadon’s latest mix “A Mix For The Groovy Children” dropped last month. .Wav’s new album “Ruminate” dropped two days after Christmas. DizzyRandoms’ latest EP “Dyskinesia” dropped in October. Each of them is on the record label as well. Everyone went around to chat about how they got into making music, their latest projects, what they’re working on now, Midcoast’s model of putting art and social justice in one space, and their goals with the label to come.
