is deeply rooted in the Scando-Med scene. The Norwegian releases on Prins Thomas Full Pupp label and makes electrically-charged Balearic house music.
Are you crazy? Old man here. If I manage to stay up that late, I will be sleeping within minutes upon my return home.
As balearic as it gets. Finally managed to grab a copy of the LP earlier this year (yay!)
For many years, this was always the last tune to be played before I left the house to go out.
Corn and craziness screams Arthur Russell.
A fairly mean dubstep re-do of Sabbath from about 5 years ago. Should shake them out of their beds AND scare them witless.
Provided I'm alone. Makes me wanna buy more synths.
The whole album («Loud Planes Fly Low») is ace. Melodic pop music at it's best. Usually also accepted fairly well by other family members, which is a plus.
Worst cover art in the history of man as an added bonus.
Fitting, but not scary enough to make me completely loose my mind.
Still in the balearic vein, but with a slight melancholy twist.
Big Wham! fan when I was a kid. I remember me and my best friend miming to this in front of my class at some point. Sterling performance, no doubt.
At this years SXSW festival in Austin, TX. I rarely get blown away by live performances, but that was a truly spectacular performance.
Famously sampled by Erot on «Song For Annie». Always makes me wanna jump up and down like a mad man, hug everyone crazy enough to come close to me and sing along (even though it has no lyrics).
Coldplay. All their stuff. And not in a good way either. Whining bastards the lot of them...
This is a spot reserved for tunes I seriously love, which also has a certain factor of silliness. I've probably played this too many times as a closing tune as it is, but I promise to play it many more.
Don't do guilty pleasures anymore, I just claim it's balearic.
At the times I've been there (which is now luckily in a fairly distant past) I've alway made a conscious effort not to listen to music. If not, that music would be ruined for life for me. Sort of like eating something that once made you sick (almonds - yuck...).
I was 9 when it came out, so I believe it must've been one of the first at least.
I'd like to tap into Nile Rodgers catalogue any day. If I have to choose one, let's go with «Good Times».
