° Scooter Island – “Wavy (What U Gotta Do)” °

Ooooohweeee. The music supervisor for our favorite TV show Broad City is putting out original music under the moniker Scooter Island and it is smooth as all get out. That’s only to be expected though as it was produced by our longtime DID love Obey City. Scooter Island’s self described brand of “rooftop music” will find its final form in a full length album due out next spring. It may be chilly around these parts, but we’re definitely dreaming of the day we can take these rooftop vibes outside where they belong.

° Fall ’14 Update °

Fall Update

Life keeps on moving for Chief and Danger. Here’s what they’ve been up to this Fall.

Danger – Life has been crazy. As far as projects go, I’ve been curating a monthly playlist of my favorite new music which you can subscribe to or stream here. I’ve also been throwing a brunch party in Brooklyn called Freshly Squeezed at Baby’s All Right that’s been a chill daytime thing with a mix of hip hop/dance/rnb. There are no shows planned in the immediate future but I’ll be sure to let you know if you happen to follow me on Twitter.

Also not quite a project, but I’m now working for Converse’s recording studio in Brooklyn managing all of their editorial content! Pretty exciting!

Chief – Life has been very busy for me as well. I’ve toned down blogging/DJing to produce a new musical project called Midnight + Mustafa with Minneapolis-based vocalist Adriana Rimpel of Malamanya and Vandaam. Our first two singles should be out within the next couple of weeks, and we’ve also just dropped a mix to let you know what we’ve been listening to this Fall. You can follow us on Soundcloud/Facebook if you’d like to stay up to date.

Doja Cat – Beautiful (prod. Iman Omari)
Tink feat. Jeremih – Don’t Tell Nobody
Jon B – They Don’t Know
SZA – HiiiJack
Bok Bok feat. Kelela – Melba’s Call

Ships – “Space Inside”
Ships - "Space Inside"

John from Solar Bears was kind enough to let us know about this smooth jam from labelmates Ships. The Irish duo’s latest single feels as if it time traveled to us from a land of space funk, so naturally we’re obsessed. “Space Inside” is undeniably addictive, and we’re sure to have this on repeat for weeks. The 7″ is out now via Stratosfear Recordings, snag it here.

Interview: Sylvan Esso
Interview: Sylvan Esso

We had the chance to sit down with Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn of Sylvan Esso to ask them a few questions before their show at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, NY. Why the name Sylvan Esso? Nick: Well, it’s kind of an in-joke. But, really, it’s just impossible to name your band anymore. Have you seen all of these dudes just adding a letter to a normal word… Amelia: […]

WHO WE ARE

Dipped in Dollars (D.I.D.) is the brainchild of Chief and Danger. While attending a crazy liberal arts college in Vermont, we realized our mutual love of righteous dance music, art, and the people behind them. D.I.D. exists to share this love with you and hopefully turn you on to something new.

This site exists to promote artists, if you hear something you like, think about throwing the artist(s) a few dollars, buy an album, go to a concert, show them you care. If any artists or official people want us to take any of our links down, just shoot us an email and we'll take care of it.

If you wish to contact the team, send mail to did@dippedindollars.com or for individual addresses, check here. (But please not both, duplicates are a drag)
