During lockdown, Tony has kindly agreed to curate a weekly playlist of Coffee Time Picks for the Manchester Cares community- as well as sharing anecdotes and info' about his picks.
This weeks selection features songs, which take a journey into sound:
Pablo – Record Shop
Pablo successfully manages to fuse an array of sounds, breaks, beats and samples together with great talent. Personally, I like listening to records. I get the new records as soon as they’re in. Records are my weakness.
The Architect – L’Usine A Disques
Bonjour mesdames, bonjour mesdemoiselles, bonjour messieurs. C’est aujourd’hui et par le miracle de la technique que nous allons desceler a l’oreille la plus legere imperfection sur ce premier disque qui va etre enregistrer en haute fidelitee “new-orthophonique”.
(C’est formidable) des plus precieux serviteurs du disque qui vont oeuvrer maintenant pour la joie de tout le amateurs de micro-sillons.
Et maintenant, a vous. This is a journey into sounds remixing Duke Ellington & Louis Armstrong.
Dubamix (ft Kyam) – Pour Qui Sonne Le Dub
This is militant dub – not music you can easily compartmentalise. The style is influenced by roots reggae and bass music with added political samples and musical samples resonating past struggles and current resistance.
Christine and The Queens – Saint Claude
Heloise Adelaide Letissier, professionally known as Christine and The Queens is a French singer, songwriter and producer. In 2017, Forbes ranked her as one of the most influential and talented people under 30 in the world.
Mr Herbert Quain – On Narcissism
Mr Herbert Quain comes from "... a state where we will remember the future and we will ignore, or hardly have a presentiment of, the past.”
