Live from his Malibu pool house.
The Beastie Boys’ Mike D is the latest host to join Beats 1 radio with a new bi-weekly show titled The Echo Chamber. The first episode aired on Friday July 15 and featured Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend as its guest.
According to an interview in Rolling Stone, The Echo Chamber will be a freeform program with Mike and his guests talking about music and records they love. The show is recorded in his Malibu pool house.
You can stream two extracts from the conversation between Mike and Ezra in the first show, including whether Serge Gainsbourg’s ‘Je T’Aime’ is too horny and record store nostalgia.
Future guests on the show will include Cassius, with whom Mike D has been collaborating, Slaves, and Blood Orange. As for the show title, Mike told Rolling Stone it was inspired by dub music and its echo chamber effect.
