Our new Chill 1 playlist straight from the Chillout area. Slow sexy little numbers from…
THE HERBALISER, WAX TAYLOR,RODNEY HUNTER and NIGHTMARES ON WAX.. they are all so good, I love them. Some gorgeous voices too.
It reminds me of a lay on the grass in the sun with friends sort of music. Or sitting by the pool on holiday. Or even just getting ready for a night out with friends.
What does this remind you of, or make you feel?
As always with my stuff even if it doesn’t sound like your kind of thing, I would say give it a chance. Hopefully then you will understand why each and every song is there and you never know what you next best most favourite thing is going to be unless you try it.
For me there are only two types of music….
Good and Bad, apart from that anything goes really. No rules and I find it better that way. Why limit yourself?
My only rule if you can call it that-ish, is it has to make me feel. Something, surely ? In the same way that all Art has to move me…. to something.
Or conversely it makes me FEEL like getting up and changing the song. Either/Or 🤣
The first album I ever had was Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland. I was when I was only 7 years old and what I know now was probably the beginning of my passion for music.
The reason I say had, is because I do mean had. Previously my big brother actually HAD it… and then he didn’t and I had somehow liberated it from him ; ). Though if he had been bothered i’m sure he would have fought me for it. It wasn’t as if he didn’t hear me playing it from then on constantly.
As soon as I heard it I was hooked. It felt like he was expressing it all for me.
Have you ever felt that when you hear music or a band that just feels like you/me? As though it were a part of you already? A known quantity, that just needed to come home. That when you hear it it makes perfect sense, like somehow they speak for you? Or is it just me?
There are many, many incredible guitarists that I also love with a passion in their own way, each brilliant, each unique. But still no one plays it like Jimi. x
What was the first album you had?…. and bought yourself? lol
The first 2 that i bought for myself after Jimi, with my own money that is, was Randy Crawford and Michael Jackson,Off the Wall
And a lovely light reggae version that i have only just found…x
