Mo bubbles, mo candles, warm water, champagne in the bath!
Well, since I spend so much time in clubs, when I’m free I don’t tend to go to many clubs. More like shows. If I go to a club it’s to see something special. Maybe go to Keb Darge’s Deep Funk nights, go to see Lil Louis Vega play house, Quantic play latin, Daz-I-Kue or Bugz In The Attic play broken. Perhaps Co-Op at Plastic People. If it’s one song, then «Don’t Stop The Music».
I would have to be crazy to do that.
M.O.P. make me angry and want to jump, while out and smash stuff. That’s why I got to be carefull where I play their records, cos I don’t want to smash my own shit up.
Just grimey and loud and angry drum n bass. Enougth to annoy anyone you don’t like.
Something to get me to my destination.
For all love occasions one of the greatest singers of all time.
Got to keep my spots secret, right? Don’t want any Tom, Dick or Harry digging up all my gems!
Something that makes me relaxed and not panic (no M.O.P. on planes!!!).
Got to have the bass, the snare and the vocals.
Well I try not too, but if I had to then something that would make the ghosts happy. Since ghosts are trapped souls of people who died unhappily, in a bad way or didn’t complete their mission, then something to appease them could be «From The Love Side».
A bit like a late nite drive. Hiphop, ragga, soul. It depends. Right now I choose: «The Takeover».
All are really anthems for getting up rite. Something to get me going, get me up, but not too crazy that i get a headache.
I love Eurythmics. So sick in the production and Annie Lennox is a great singer. I bought a lot of their stuff and listening to their stuff now reminds me of how it was as a 16 year old.
My favourite album of all time.
I remember hearing this when I was like 11 years old and been blown away.
What a beuatiful love song. «I will always be around, I feel like this is the begining». I would want my death to be a celebration of life and not a depressing affair. The most important thing in life is love. To have and give love. And we should all hang on to that.
It came out in summer of 89 and I was doing graf, DJing, break dancing, drinking under age, smoking and loving it all.
They are legends. Totally created a new music and inspired a whole generation of producers from Daft Punk to Basement Jaxx amd J Dilla. I can’t choose just one song.
What a lyric! Taken in part from a speech by Ethiopian president Haile Selassie in the 50’s. So pertinent today.
One of the ultimate hiphop anthems ever.
Classic rap record.
Anthem for any city really.
Ultimate sunday song!
What amazing lyrics. He was a genius and The Beatles are perhaps the greatest band of all time. Followed by Bob Marley.
