1. What’s your favorite tune to cruise at night?
Henry Mancini – “Butterfly” (1975)
Crusing at night is a very relaxing experience for me. It’s a time where I like to let my mind travel as I take in the L.A backdrop.This beautiful symphonic rendition of Herbie Hancock’s “Butterfly” with its spacious strings and laid-back electric piano is the perfect soundtrack.
2. What’s your favorite tune to chill?
Delegation – “Oh Honey” (1977)
When stress gets the best of me and it’s time to chill, this tune from British band Delegation has a special place in my heart.
Sit back, relax, turn up the volume and let this groove take you on a journey!
3.What’s your favorite tune for a romantic evening?
Patrice Rushen – “Remind Me‘” (1982)
“I can recall a certain magic in your eyes
I’m under your spell each time that you appear
A kiss so passionate that has me mesmerized
I fall more in love each time that you are near…
This track always brings warm feelings to my heart everytime I play it.
4. What’s your favorite tune to shake your body down to the ground?
D-Train- “Music” (1983)
D-Train’s “Music” is a timeless dancefloor classic which defines what funk is all about: to make people dance and have a good time.
Definitely one of the finest funk tracks ever made. What would we do without our music??
5. What’s the tune that gives you instant nostalgia?
Art Of Noise – “Moments In Love” (1984)
Some songs just speak directly to your soul when you first hear them. I was 7 years old the first time I heard it. I remember feeling emotions I didn’t really understand at that age. “Moments in Love” is one of those magic tracks that triggers nostalgia
and brings back memories.
