2020 Playlist. A mix for that year that was...

2020 . The pandemic . It was always going to be a year where different music became the norm - because we all had different environment, needs, stressors and experiences. It appears I needed a lot of downtempo and deep house to get me through. Add that to the experience of playing Death Stranding (probably the best game sound track ever created) during the worst of lockdowns - and you get this eclectic mix.  Every year, I put together a "DJ" mix of songs - wanted to share them here. There is only one rule: the music has to be released or discovered by me in that year. That leaves it open to new music and a couple of old favourites that slip under everyone's radar.  In addition, the playlist is designed in "DJ order". It's meant to be an experience. So start at the beginning - and play through in order. If you're playing on the Apple Music Mac App, set the crossfade to 12 seconds.  Here's the 2020 journey.  Moody Electronica Deep House Folk Country I

2019 Playlist. A mix for that year that was...

Music is something of a hobby. From playing it, to cataloguing it (oh how the days of MP3's fed the OCD soul) to collecting it.  Apple Music and Spotify have made this a bit harder, with the sheer overwhelming amount of choice. But with great power, comes great playlists. I hope.  Every year, I put together a "DJ" mix of songs - wanted to share them here.
