Going back to a DJ's? Here's what might be on the stereo, if DMC's 'Back2Mine' series is anything to go by:Ashley Beedle: Sun Ra - Sleeping Beauty (Saturn)One of the legendary Sun Ra's more accessible productions. You just lie back and let it wash over you. Stunning.Marc Romboy: Jan Gabarek "Red wind"If you are interested in new jazz which is accessable you should   listen to this guy. "Red wind" is only one of 20 songs I could   mention. The soundtrack for aspiration and love for sure.Lee Coomb...

01) "River" - Terry Reid.The title track from a flawless album by this American folk artist. I don't know much about him but a dear friend of mine put me onto this many years ago. Cherished it ever since.02) "How Can I Love You" - Eleanore Mills.An absolutely outstanding soul record, possibly my favourite by a female vocalist. Her voice just gets to you. You can hear the heartbreak in her voice. Stunning.03) "Say" - Cat Power.This is a very personal one for me and my other half: it was what we w...

1. "Gonna Make U Sweat" C & C Music Factory ft Freedom WilliamsFor one it's a song I had the pleasure of being a significant part of and its iconic. It also reminds me of perseverance. I was essentially homeless when I wrote it to a candle at night. And it blew up. Hey maybe it's the candle! 2. "My Melody" by Eric B and RakimIt was the record that changed the rap game and the way I think about rhymes for ever. Peace to the God.3. "Papa Damnballah" Toto BissaintheWell Toto is an iconic Haitia...

Manu Chao ‘Minha Galera’This is one of my all time favorite songs. I always said that I will someday dance with my future wife (whoever she may end up being) to this song at my wedding on a beach in South America. I know, I am a sap. But to me this song evokes strong feelings of love. This is the best song off of my favorite Manu Chao album - in my opinion, and I love every song on this album.The Smiths ‘There Is A Light That Never Goes Out’ I am a huge Smiths fan. Their music is just full on po...

Well, this was always going to be hard. I have a collection of 20,000 records and CD's and I love music from Opera to Punk, from 19th century Music Hall to Cajun, from Industrial to Alternative and every permutation of Soul, Funk, Jazz and Latin - everything! OK, so, absolutely right now if you came over to mine: The Danleers - One Summer NightA Doo Wop ballad. This is just one of thousands I could choose though. As a music-style, it's my first love and I could easily just listen to it on it's o...
