Well, on my planet, there’s a legend about people like you. It’s called Footloose. And in it, a great hero, named Kevin Bacon, teaches an entire city full of people with sticks up their butts that dancing, well, it’s the greatest thing there is.

My Musical Mind (16/09/14)

feat. music from Jessie Ware, Jhené Aiko, Kimbra, BANKS, Prince, Tinashe, TV on the Radio, Flying Lotus, Stars, HAERTS and loads more.

Plus listen to commentary/clips of 5 of my favourite songs of the fortnight* in the latest Black Diesel Radio mini-edition.

Welcome to my musical mind. Where fifties swing meets noughties electronica. Where blues, rock, latin, funk, hip-hop, pop, country, jazz and southern fried soul will all be given a workout. Eclectic is the watch word. Embrace the chaos kids.

Exquisite piano ballad. Completely lovely.
