Quick Hitlist

…Here’s some of the songs I’ve been listening to of late, especially while sorting through boxes of old LPs and cassettes. As every home DJ knows, you can’t so much as look at a cassette without conjuring up a mix tap – so while the following compilation exists only on paper, I hope you’ll have as much fun imagining it as I did programming it. Spot the segues, think of the themes and, should any of these choices prove inspirational, offer your opinions. You can post a comment by clicking on the ‘comments’ link below.
