This very first edition of Music Mondays comes off the back of a very sunny April weekend. I was tempted to throw in a summer banger but I’ll keep the Ibiza anthems in my record bag for now.
1) Boiler Room recently uploaded to YouTube all the sets from their Teachers: A Chicago tribute to Daft Punk night. Eight hours of music began with a set by Ron Trent in front of an empty room.
2) Joe Goddard is one fifth of Hot Chip, one half of The 2 Bears and one month ago went solo to record an Essential Mix for Radio 1. You’ve only got six more days to wrap your ears around this before the Beeb take it down.
3) I have an unhealthy obsession with 80s music and so had to end with a synth stomper. This track was so good it was released by two different artists in the same year (1984). The original by Italian singer Raf was followed by this version from American songstress Laura Branigan.
