Had a fantastic Saturday night, pool-side set. Beautiful vibes all around. I am at my level best @ this kind of gig.
Actually hanging up the solo electronic/ acoustic spurs for a bit to concentrate on these DJ sets.
Gives me a greater opportunity to share music I love, keeps me so current — searching for new cuts, and I can mix in my own electronic stuff (that fits).
Walking on the Moon – The Police
A classic, ushering in the right feel.
All I Want to Do – UB40
Deep cut from my favorite album of theirs. Such a great groove. Amazing drum machine and bass (machine) too.
Natty Dread – Bob Marley
All time favorite Bob track. So chill.
T’aint What You Do – Fun Boy 3
So weird and great.
Non Stop – Kraftwerk
One of the greats. This is a newer remix. Absolutely love the mood here.
Verona – Lastlings
Nice, close song. I think I heard it in passing on Apple Music.
Rat in Mi Kitchen – UB40
Couldn’t help myself. Had to go back to the well.
Fems Pay Douces – Raphael Toiné
Heard this via Paris’ Le Mellotron. Shows up in a lot of folks sets. How could you not love this guy?
I Fell it Coming – The Weekend/ Daft Punk
Such a jam. Chorus is repeated a lot. Not sure the kids know what he’s talking about, luckily.
Sentimental Street – Night Ranger
Again, I can not help myself sometimes with the 80’s.
Paradise (live) – Sade
Thee deepest of grooves. Love this whole record too.
Wouldn’t it Be Good – Danny Hutton Hitters
A classic. Good break-the-sounds-up song. A bit cheesy, version-wise.
A Message to You Rudy – The Specials
Perfect pool-side music. Drunken horns on a Saturday after noon are perfection.
Down Under – Men at Work
Always sounds great loud. You wouldn’t think, but it’s true.
Brother’s Cup – Red Hot Chili Peppers
Wasn’t sure about this one. Kept waiting for an errant blue word. Never came!
Matadjem Yinmixan – Tinarwian
I love this song so much. Perfect chill afternoon vibe.
Cruel Summer – Bananarama
Ditto. Love this too. Sounds so wooly and perfectly of its time.
Where Angels Fear to Tread – Disclosure
Amazing. The whole thing; every facet. Made me a fan of these guys.
Meditate – INXS
Weird, but it worked. Forget how it even got on the playlist.
Oguo – Lakou Mizik & Joseph Ray
I almost misted-up when this started. Such amazing work here combining the rural, very real island life with the modern. Breathtaking. Watch the video. Reminds you what an amazing world we live in.
Secrets – The Weekend
The most modern way to cover songs ever. Genius.
Adventure of a Lifetime – Coldplay
No apologies for loving theses guys. This record changed the course of my life.
Crazy – Gnarls Barkley
Classic. Everybody loves it. Period.
Bad Dream – Cannons
How cool is this? Love these guys.
Love is Not Enough – Above & Beyond ft. Zoë Johnson
Beautiful remix. And that voice. Wow.
Chameleon – Panu
Happiest song ever? I could listen to it over-and-over-and-over.
Warning Signs – Alan Fitzpatrick & Lawrence Hart
This has been playing in the car a lot. Like a lot.
One More Time – Daft Punk
I can still remember the first time I heard this. Fell right in love.
Sailing – Chicane
Cool idea and execution. Prefect for the Country Club afternoon set. Tailor made.
Beyond Beliefs – Ben Böhmer
The summer song of 2021. For sure.
The Telephone Call – Kraftwerk
Yes! Current favorite Kraftwerk song.
SuperJumper – MadMixMustang
