This time it’s very relaxed here. The music selection is set between Downtempo, Chillout and Easy Listening moods, between new and classic stuff:

  • with songs released in 2013 by The Manic Street Preachers, Peter Gabriel, Emika, Goldfrapp and Tricky,

  • with classic tunes by Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone, Dusty Springfield, Bill Plummer and Ananda Shankar which have been accompanied by some Celtic tracks by Emer Kenny, Mouth Music, Afro Celt Sound System, Iarla Ó Lionáird, Paul Mounsey, and Martyn Bennett,

  • with some all time favourites of mine by Shawn Lee, Black Star Liner, Thievery Corporation (feat. Emiliana Torrini), Badmarsh & Shri and Dreadzone,

  • with relaxed tracks by Johnny Cash, Lou Reed (R.I.P.), Pressure Drop, Jon Kennedy, Modaji and The Stereophonics.

Lay back and relax!
