Five songs that rotate heavily on my sound system:
1. Count Indigo: Trinity
"If you missed Curtis Mayfield this is your second chance. Well composed soul music that would have made the late Barry White cry with joy. I recommend listening once a day."
2. Grandmaster Flash: The Message (Roots Manuva Mix)
"Mostly known for raps and guest appearances, Roots Manuva switched it up and produced a bumpy remix that reinvents the original."
3. Jemini & Danger Mouse: Ghetto Pop Life
"Take the street, put it on a platter and serve it up to a vicious boom-bap-beat. The whole album has the genuine rap music feel."
4. Mat the Alien: UFO
"This joint is moody, deep and was conceived in our own Whistler backyard."
5. Scissor Sisters: Take Your Mama (Hot Chip Remix)
"Can acoustic guitars, electro-drums and Elton John drunk on cheap Champagne fit together? You be the judge."
