is the easy listening/sleazetronica project by Joel Martin and Matt Edwards (aka Radioslave). Also known as Maxi & Zeus, the two London-based producers and record hunters fabricate mellow and mesmerizing soundtracks for films yet to be made.
The stuff he did after he moved to Europe. But normally Radio 3, their late night program where they play Classical music interspersed with readings. Well, the best thing though is the «BBC Shipping Forecast» – where you hear a ten minute report about the state of the sea.
A great easy listening compilation.
Sounds a bit up-my-own-arese though.
They always disturb me! So I need to play something really crazy like «Pressure». It’s a classic Sheffield bleep record, although it’s not from Sheffield. It’s up there with LFO, but they bass is really, really low.
I have no car for two years now which is annoying. But when I used to have one, I had these two cassettes with John Carpenter classics. Ultimate late night driving music.
There’s too much which would fit. Let’s say «Cinema Paradiso».
Some years ago I made a CD with one and a half hours of quiet storm music to get down to. So, for example something by The Mystic Moods Orchestra. Quite cheesy, but does the job.
Silence. I need full concentration.
I think every parent in our generation had this record.
Jazz is quite nice on a plane. I once heard «Mr. Magic» on the inflight program and was amazed how good it worked.
I can’t listen to music in bed. Only if I had my iPod on, which would be really sad. But if I could listen to music, I’d go for: Bobby Womack - The Poet. Probably my favorite soul album of all time.
It’s hard to think of something that fits. I could come up with a song that is related to the question but that would be corny. I’ll go for the Versions album. It’s a favorite of me and Matt.
That really depends on the mood I’m in. Generally I need to get late in the day to get sort of going. But the best thing I ever heard was in Japanese hotel. They had this radio station in thee room and they played taditional Japanese instrumental versions of Western pop songs, with the added bonus of birds singing over it. I went down to the lobby and asked them what it is, but they just laughed at me.
