Track of the Week
Roman Flügel – “Wilkie” (2014)I like it – I like it a lot! A nightclub in the 80s springs to mind – a crowd dancing in pelvis-clutching jeans, big hair dos and tight t-shirts. Bonnie Tyler is probably dancing in the corner under a spotlight in front of a fan. There is a definite feel of Kraftwerk here too. The track starts with throbbing bass chords and a spacey high-hat which slowly transforms into mesmerising arpeggios. A beautiful melody interludes the arpeggios that has lush reverb – giving a beautiful ambience rest between them. This track is dreamy – it’s a beauty of a late night jam! “Save me because I am lonely. I thought you were happy”
Best Track You’ve Never Heard
John Barry & His Orchestra – “The Knack” (1965)This track sums up everything about the swinging sixties in London! The intro is slow but as soon as that bass line takes over it transforms into a beauty that sweeps me onto my feet dancing. Female vocals are laid throughout. It gradually builds over the 3 minutes to a fantastic dramatic finale! John Barry at his best!
