The best chillout record?
M – Fleetwood Mac. Rumours or Tango In The Night. Perfect for chilling to or after a heavy night when you need something with heart after all the chaos.
P – Laura Marling – Alas I Cannot Swim. I saw Laura Marling very early in her career in Leeds and was captivated by how honest her lyrics were. Her debut album is still on regular rotation when I get home from a gig and need to not hear anything too drum-centric.
The record everyone loves but you hate?
M – Probably one of our tunes! Ha, joking. A friend of mine (I won’t name who but you know who you are) played an electro mix of a track from The Lion King on a boat party. Everyone loved it… I hated it!
P – Really can’t think of any music I hate. Anything that comes with its own dance routine would probably qualify though. Excluding ‘Oops Upside Your Head’.
The best record for a family party?
M – Massive house anthems always go down. Alison Limerick – ‘Where Love Lives’ would be a good one.
P – Luther Vandross – ‘Never Too Much’. Though, I’d play it at a rave if the time was right!
The soundtrack to a lazy Sunday afternoon?
P – Fat Freddy’s Drop – Based On A True Story. Incredible LP. Whether you’re hungover or just wanting to relax this record is the perfect accompaniment.
The worst record you’ve ever heard?
M – PJ & Duncan – ‘Let’s Get Ready To Rhumble’. Utter rubbish. TV stars do not make good pop stars, though I quite like them on the box.
P – I don’t like to slag off music really, but this track is a combination of the worst and possibly best things I have ever heard.
The future classic?
M&P – Four Tet – Beautiful Rewind. One of the most exciting records we’ve ever heard.
