Last week on One World, I aired a special interview with Argentine-based ZZK Records label head El G aka Grant C. Dull. He'd been playing gigs in SF and LA and we were lucky enough to have him come through the Jazz 88.3 studios for a chat. The short 10 minute interviewed covered a little bit of everything regarding ZZK, their sound and what's to come in 2013 for them. It was definitely a cool interview! ZZK was kind enough to post the interview on their Soundcloud. (By the way: They posted the interview using my DJ alias!)
