Welcome to the latest installment of an ongoing mixtape series in which I highlight some of my favorite voices online and beyond. This week we catch up with Adam Weatherhead; London DJ, crate digger and the man behind Diddywah, a blog I have been following since 2005. Covering all things vintage, from rock&roll to soul and r&b, Diddywah specializes in rare 45 vinyl-rips scoured from his digging trips around the globe. Be sure to bookmark the site and should you find yourself is his neighborhood, catch one of his regular DJ gigs in East London.

Diddywah will be guest hosting the second hour of my satellite radio show, on SIRIUS/XMU, this Friday. Mixtape download and details after the jump…
