Brooklyn artist Scott Campbell is a typical New York creative in that he’s passionate about his eclectic tastes and interests. One of his loves is a Monday night radio show on East Village Radio by the hilariously named Chances With Wolves (DJs Justin Cox and Kenan Juska). The musical duo excavate some of the most obscure, funkiest, and freakiest soul and R&B records you can imagine, and their beats, Campbell says, are great because “they never play the obvious.”
Chances With Wolves posts their playlist and program on their blog and reading the names are like looking into a portal you never knew was there.
“I really like the idea that there are these people that didn’t know how beautiful their records were for some reason,” Justin Cox explains in this latest video from The Avant Garde Diaries
It’s nice to know that every Monday night there’s a little tribe that follows the beats and aural musings of some forgotten artists who deserve another listen. It really does sound pretty avant garde.
