Midweight Designer Lucy Eades sets us in a barren hinterland, yet her playlist is far from the tranquility attributed to a desert.
Instead, she presents an eclectic jumble of disco, hip-hop, and rock tunes that get the foot tapping and the heart racing. In it’s blending of nostalgia and optimism, Jamie XX’s “Good Times” fondly holds onto meaningful memories that can even make your eyes watery. Taking us even further back in time is the 90’s “Send Me On My Way” by Rusted Root and the 50s “Little Bitty Pretty One” by Thurston Harris. An intersection of timelines that explode into synchronicity in a playlist that Eades describes as both setting a groovy atmosphere for a Friday night and providing an energy-boost on a Monday morning.
James Burke starts the series off with a soothing mix of electronic and hip-hop sounds.
"I consider music as a bowl of energy like the sun which gives you a lot of vitamins."
