Playing tracks by
DJ Skratch Bastid, Davy Jones, David Robert Jones, David Bowie, Major Tom and more.
This mix is a tribute to David Bowie, selecting some of his fast music from the 1980s and after, especially his forays into drum & bass, which debuted dramatically on Earthling (1997) but didn’t end there. Despite their common tempo in this mix (about 169 bpm), the musical diversity of these tracks demonstrates the extraordinary breadth and depth of Bowie's creativity.
The resulting mix is an eclectic, uptempo trip through a vastly eclectic oeuvre.
And it's a modest way to say: thank you for the changes, and safe travels among the stars.
As a friend remarked, Bowie “taught a few generations how to break norms, dream, just dance, sing out one’s fantasies and imagine a better world. … I think our world will not be the same without him but it is different because of him and maybe this is all one can ask for.“
