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 week he has chosen 'a fantastic sound vibration selection...'

Listen Here


Aisha – I Am Not Perfect

Aisha, true to her roots, is a high priestess, daughter of Zion and first lady of dub. (See what I did there?) She is not perfect, but then who is?

Pablo – Autumn Leaves For Outer Space

This is tightly produced down-tempo jazz to chill out to. Pablo is also known as Michael Hunter or The Butch Cassidy Sound System, but his music is very different for each persona.

Bobby Ellis & Val Bennett – The Arabian Sound of Reggae

This horns cut is a lush storming romp on the same rhythm as Johnny Clarke’s “None Shall Escape The Judgement”. It’s a reggae classic from 1975.


Rudimental (ft John Newman & Alex Clare) – Not Giving In

I heard this track recently on television (maybe an advertisement?)  It was the second single from the debut album “Home” by Rudimental. “Home” was a number one album and was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and three MTV awards. It also won the MOBO award for best album.
