Boombox Deluxe: Music Is My Life

Grandmaster Flash & Tina Weymouth (Tom Tom Club)
If BBC One would have asked me to join their mix series Essentials, it would sound something like this. All of my musical influences squeezed together in one cloudcast! There’s some old-school ground-breaking hip hop, modern day nu-disco and all of the soulful subgenres in between. Enjoy this special edition of Boombox!

Personal Life is a London-based jazzy-soul collective formed by Robert Strauss, featuring the classic sounding voice of Stuart Lisbie plus core members of Amy Winehouse’s touring band. The Honesty remix of ‘There’s a time for everything’ is from the compilation album ‘The move volume 2’, out on Tokyo Dawn Records.
