smoking_cigarettes_&_writing_something_nasty_on_the_wall

Playing tracks by

Donovan, Stevie Wonder, Generation X, Cabaret Voltaire, NEU! and more.

Having been invited as a guest DJ at Red Market over the last two summers, I thought I would give some thought to the guiding instincts behind my selections.
There is the shared experience with the recollection of music, but dig deeper, and the associations become personal - great tunes become wicked.
A set of tunes which may, on a casual listening may appear nostalgic - or worse still ‘eclectic’ - are linked by an imperceptible thread of association. Resonating through time and space, familiar tunes recall euphoric times past, and juxtaposed in the moment, with less familiar music, new associations are born. Here are six of my touchstones.

I think of my little record player, smoking on the roof, the supercool posters on your wall and how proud I was of you! Still am love x
