Chill Tuesdays Playlist: 6-7-2011
This is a sample of the music I played last Tuesday.
1. Mysterons by Portishead: Classic trip-hop from the album Dummy. Beth Gibbens sings over a haunting groove reminiscent of fifties to early sixties sci-fi movies.
2.Witness Dub by Roots Manuva: Mostly known as a British rapper, Roots delivers head-nodding dub.
3. The Forgotten People by Thievery Corporation: A cool song sounding as if it came straight from Bombay. Actually, it’s by a group based in Washington DC.
4. Of Course,This Way Madame by Forbidden Ensemble: From the album Porno Soundtracks Volume One, this funky instrumental takes you back to seventies porn . Incidentally, seventies porn music partly inspired my chill nights.
5. Eple by Royksopp: A space-age instrumental where one can either chill or dance to.
6. 6 Underground by Sneaker Pimps: Another trip-hop classic with Kellie Dayton (now Kelli Ali) beautifully singing.
7. Christiansands by Tricky: From the king of trip-hop, another elegant funky number including the beautiful vocals of Martina Topley-Bird.
