What can I possibly say about 2016? A U.S. presidential election, the U.K. referendum on the EU and the subsequent political fall out; I can feel my blood pressure rising just by writing this! Then, if that isn’t enough, in David Bowie and Prince, the music industry has lost two of its greats. But, however much sadness I felt for those two, the passing of Victoria Wood saddened me the most. A true English treasure; if you’re not familiar with her work (and this is a long way from chillout), look up The Ballad of Barry and Freida! It includes the unforgettable lyric “spank me on the bottom with a Woman’s Weekly”!
So, if like me, you are pretty fed up with 2016, it has to be time to chill. This time, I’m going to recommend my all time favourite Chillsky podcast, and that is episode 65. Please take a listen.
Now, returning to the late great Prince, one more recommendation, it’s Purple Rain by Kama X Skitza on Soundcloud.
Thank you for reading.
