1. Relative – Soul Searching (Flexi Cuts01)
The first track i published on vinyl, and still my favourite… I use this one like a business music card.
2. William Devaugh – Be Thankful For What You Got
I regularly play this gorgeous track as an aperitif, at beach parties, local outskirts, small places … for the opening or the closing … and dancers are always satisfied!
3. Crazy P – Never Gonna Reach Me
I love this band, their live approach is formidable and their records are marvellous! Jazz and funk and disco and house for fine ears!
4. Todd Terje – Snooze For Love
Absolutely the tracks I use most for closing moments. A masterpiece.
5. Zanzibar Chanel – Killer
I don’t know if this Australian duo is still making music, but I know that this record is always in my bag. A hypnotic dance-floor bomb!
6. Kink – Express
I’ve been a huge fan of KiNK since the beginning… I think that his way of making music and performing it live is truly unique. I have almost all his releases … this is one those … and i jealously guard it! It’s a trip!
7. Crystal Waters – Gipsy Woman (She’s Homeless)
A house track anthem, the roland drums, the m1 organ, the 4/4 breaks and then the soul vocals on the top. And the people dancing and singing… just beautiful!
8. Guru Featuring Dee C. Lee — No Time To Play
I discovered my “acid jazz inspiration digging at Flexi’s second-had section. I lost myself among many quality records that blended jazz and hip-hop and house in the mid 1990s.
9. Massive Attack – Protection
I guess it’s damn right to put this one in the playlist. This is one of my favorite Massive Attack songs, perhaps because it’s sang by Tracey Thorn?
10. Lucio Dalla – Washington
One of my favorite Italian songs, I think that the musical search by some “old – classic” Italian songwriters is unreachable even today. A true school of music and life.
