Cerrone – Supernature
This is the track I like to listen to when I get back from the club and I’m still in those groovy hypnotic vibes. I think Cerrone is a mastermind and with “Supernature” he has clearly proven that.

America – A Horse With No Name
The flow of this track truly takes me through the whole journey of the lyrics. I imagine myself riding a horse in the desert with this track playing in the background.

Kings of Leon – Cold Desert
I think lead singer Caleb Followill really sang true emotions when recording this track. I love the whole feel of this gem and it communicates with my soul in a special way.
The Doors – Riders On The Storm
Jim Morrison fascinates me in every single way and if I close my eyes and listen to this track, it truly takes me back to his time. Chillin’ somewhere with a bunch of hippies playing music and enjoying the simplicity of life.

Daft Punk – Face To Face
This was my favorite track when the “Discovery” album came out in 2001. This was the year that I got into DJing and this masterpiece is the perfect memory of that time.

Lana Del Rey – Video Games
I remember I was at my friend’s place around 11 years ago when I heard this triumphant song on the TV for the first time. I instantly fell in love with her and her music and have been ever since feeling like she’s singing her songs to me. I know that’s not true obviously.…just my vast and wild imagination.

The Alan Parsons Project – Eye In The Sky
My manager Cheryl was the person who introduced me to this beautiful piece amongst many others. So, this reminds me of her and of the good times we had travelling the world on tour together.

Post Malone – White Iverson
Anyone that knows me well will tell you that I’m always playing this track in my car after a great night out. Post is incredibly gifted and what makes me like him even more is his down-to-earth humility.
Post Malone - White Iverson
Fleetwood Mac – Dreams
I really don’t think that there is a music lover on this planet that does not love this treasure of a song. This track is a perfect example of how beautiful simplicity can be. Fleetwood Mac are amongst the legends that will live forever.
Fleetwood Mac - Dreams [with lyrics]
Bruce Springsteen – Dancing In The Dark
For me Bruce Springsteen reminds me of that all-American image that we used to see on the TV when we were kids. So, I always love to blast this timeless masterpiece of a feel-good classic whenever I’m touring the US.
