Featured music

Title track of Funkadelic’s ‘Maggot Brain’, released in 1971


I’m an 80s kid who’s been there and done that.

Music came to me from various medium such as radio, cassette, vinyl, CD, MP3, PC video games, cinema and television.

I vividly remember waiting for Paint It Black to play on the radio in order to tape it, my father’s small vinyl collection, my first CD, Nirvana: MTV Unplugged in New York, the early days of the Internet, MP3s and my first digital audio player, Diamond’s Rio MP3 player.

In terms of genres, you’ll have to rewind a few decades as I have strong leanings towards 1960s and 1970s Blues, Folk, Jazz, Rock ‘n’ roll and, of course, Soul.
