Hello this is Jaen Paniagua, I wanna share with you guys my life long, top 10 home listening records, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do…
José José – Una Mañana (1969)
To start I’ll do it as I normally would. The mornings without the voice of the prince of the song would be like a morning without coffee. This piece is without a doubt the best breakfast for anyone. The best voice in Mexico in my opinion.
Lisa Stansfield – All Around the World
Perfect for a romantic date or a party 80’s or Nudisco style. I played this a lot from 2011 to 2013. It was many times my favorite closing track.
Youssou N’Dour – 7 Seconds ft. Neneh Cherry
I remember my sister’s boyfriend loved this track and I put it on every time he went home to visit her, when I was little, around 95′. I keep this for life, every time I want to hear something different or relax, Seven Seconds is the best option.
Sade – The Sweetest Taboo
Sade’s voice is special to anyone and The Sweetest Taboo is the song of a siren on earth.
Soda Stereo – In the City of Fury
Gustavo Cerati is one of the most iconic argentinian geniuses, without any complexity his music is a masterpiece.
Joe Arroyo – yamulemao
Salsa is one of my favorite styles, instilled by the neighborhood in which I was not born but which always adopted me. The musical richness of its pieces make the rhythm and harmonies give flavor and happiness to life. The lyrics are his special touch.
Celeda, Danny Tenaglia – Music Is The Answer
And yes, what can I say … Music is the Answer.
Radio Slave – Screaming Hands (Original Mix)
I remember around 2006 I was playing this track a lot. Without a doubt one of my favorites in All Time.
Moby – In This World
Moby made the perfect mix of electronic music and pop without spoiling it. I like this very much.
The Doors – The End
I love the music of The Doors, as a child I only listened to The Doors for hours on end and so, it’s good to finish this top 10 with something from them and what better than The End to close.
Jaen Paniagua – Orion EP (Superfreq)
Jaen has recorded on vital labels like Get Physical, Mexa and Zoo:Technique in the past building a solid following for his take on House music. The Mexican tastemaker builds real tension and suspense in his tracks and has a seductive take on bass that always
draws you in and has made him one of his native scene’s most vital names. His superb title track ‘Orion’ kicks off with solid drums and a tense string that sets an absorbing mood. Things then build with whispered vocals, bass tones and synth splashes until the hook spins you out and makes its mark. Next comes ‘Splash,’ which starts with vast rubbery kicks, enveloping bass and warm chord stabs that slowly build
to an infectious groove. Synth stabs work around the chords and hold you in a beautiful sense of suspense.
Keeping up the excellence is ‘Orbita,’ which starts with a shuffling tribal rhythm. Pulsating bass is designed to lock in the whole club as it perfectly interplays with wavy tones before bleeps, a deep melody and an acid underscore are finished with intense vocal samples to complete this delicious slice of tech. Last up is the perfectly named ‘Sublime,’ with its well-crafted and solid rhythms, rolling bass and delightfully tonal pad work. The track builds with chord stabs and a hook that you’ll have trouble shaking from your head and make this a big tune.
