Sunday Music

Sometimes on Sundays I would like to treat you to my favourite music to be played on a Sunday afternoon, usually chilled and relaxed and not necessarily electronica. Most of this music has been very inspirational to me and it’s my pleasure to share this with you. Discover my musical taste beyond the beat. This is what the web is for, right?

Sunday Music: High On Hope (Long Hot Summer Remix)

Now this was summer 2014. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Especially the last week was a nice payback for some unnecessary cold and rain before. 22 years ago around this time, I was waiting for the release of the Summer Remix EP of my Microglobe track High On...
