Here's a YouTube playlist of these songs for continuous listening
NICOLETTE – Waking up (Remix) [Shut Up And Dance Records, 1992]
Oldschool breakbeat flavors with a cheeky vocal and catchy melody.
C.K. & TIMEMAN - Øjenkontakt Blues [Regelbau, 2016]
Nice variations and playful effects on the percussive elements along with tropical pads and cosmic synths make this track one that never gets boring for me.
SHADES OF RHYTHM – Lonely Days, Lonely Nights [ZTT, 1992]
A good friend of mine played this track (twice!!) on a radio show a couple of months ago. I only just received my copy but until now it’s been playing on my headphones every day as I ride my motorcycle on the metro, wishing I was hearing it on a car stereo.
TONY PLAKOVIC – True To Yourself [Peoples Potential Unlimited, 2014]
Here’s a true gem from the 80’s. Improvised sounding guitar recordings and constantly shifting intensity and rhythms. Layers upon layers of synths. What a journey. What a re-press.
SQUAREPUSHER – Beep Street [Warp Records, 1997]
Jungle infected IDM with these soothing and timeless melodies that just make you want you to hit the road and drive forever.
PROJECT PABLO – Follow It Up (Dadana mix) [1080p, 2015]
I love everything about 1080p. It was a hard task choosing as I knew I had to include a track from this world class label. This one is really easy to approach and captures the feeling of this playlist perfect with its dreamy pads and catchy melodies.
CLEVELAND - Pandora [Batti Batti, 2013]
A relatively monotone groove filled with a sample rich pad and a cheesy, almost provocative synth.
HATCHBACK – White Diamond [Thisisnotanexit, 2009]
Night Rider meets Stranger Things. Reminiscent of a low rolling and synth heavy 80’s tune. This style is not normally my cup of tea however track is something special.
