Music is a big thing in my life. Now and then I love to DJ, sometimes under the name Floppy Disco. Spinning tunes and moving between afrobeat, Brazilian rhythms, jazz, tropical curiosities, soul, funk, disco and reggae. I also love bass, beats, deep house and techno.
During quieter times, I’m interested in folk, gospel, spiritual jazz and highlife. For a selection of this sort of thing, I’ve recently curated a series of Late Night Radio Hours with friends. These are musical voyages for late night listening, compiled very infrequently.
Here’s a bunch of Spotify playlists featuring music I’ve been enjoying over the years.
Box of Treasures Volumes 1 – 6.
These are literally boxes of great music that I’m discovering or re-discovering again. Once I’ve had enough, I move onto a new box. Volume 6 is still under construction.
Box of winners. Here’s a sample of the variety of tunes that I like to throw into DJ sets.
Hip Hop Foundations. I have a lot of love for hip-hop and discovering the incredible soul, jazz and funk music that are sampled in the tunes. Here’s a playlist I’ve been putting together around that.
And finally, a selection of reggae. You gotta love reggae.
