Thankfully, I’m not badly afflicted with the asthma; my inhalers remain for the most part stowed away until my lungs start to disintegrate in winter. I blame the bout of pneumonia I got when I was a tot. Memorable because it was my only stay in hospital and my aunt gave me a magazine about Abba. See, I was into them waaaay before you…
Back on topic. It was 22°C today and yesterday in London and this is not only welcome and amazing for many, many reasons, it reminded me that I need to have a soundtrack for those sunshine chores such as watering the plants and monitoring the park behind the apartment for sunbathers.
The title track of this selection is by cocknbullkid, a lass from Hackney, so a neighbour of sorts, whose delightful tune here is a love song to London which she seems loyal to even though it provokes her asthma. I’m sure it’s deeper than that. It could also be about a person called ‘London’. It doesn’t matter; it grooves.
Apart from that, it’s back to swingy Wendy House courtesy of Freemasons (doing their fast bit-slow bit-fast bit trick with Yasmin); Scandinavian ladies Oh Land and Loreen, who inexplicably didn’t make the Swedish national Eurovision finals with her track; and the return of Sharam, who’s perversely named ‘Fun’ will be the final track I use if I ever give up mixage. You will blub!
Oh, if you are a dance music producer in the light trance style, I reckon there are quite enough dreamy songs called ‘Falling’ at this stage now, cheers!
