James Burke starts the series off with a soothing mix of electronic and hip-hop sounds.
A selection of dance symphonies, each track has enough melodic crispness to truly bring us high above the clouds. The lush rock melodies of Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ ‘Venice Queen’ teleport us to an afternoon drive under Californian sunshine, detouring us halfway to the chic Parisian brevity of Air’s entire debut album ‘Moon Safari’ that plays as one odyssey for Burke. The mix seamlessly blends into Labi Siffre’s jazz-heavy bass lines… Enter the cockpit with this specially curated playlist, where you are the pilot and its tunes are the destinations of your choosing.
Lucy Eades sets us in a barren hinterland, yet her playlist is far from the tranquility attributed to a desert.
"I consider music as a bowl of energy like the sun which gives you a lot of vitamins."
