Stevie Wonder kicks off the playlist with Superstition and oh my god, what a throwback. So funky it almost threw me out of my chair, this really is a mood to get it going. The funk doesn’t stop as it rolls on into Paloma Faith’s Just Can’t Rely on You.
With Alicia Keys and Frank Ocean lined up next, the playlist slows itself down without slowing down its drive. Don’t ask me what that means because I’m about as competent at reviewing music as Steve Harvey on the Miss Universe stage.
Gin Wigmore is on the playlist, so that’s a +1! I’ve never heard Hey Ho, but she’s still sounding as Janis Joplin as ever.
To sum it all up, it’s the type of music to make Theresa May drop down harder than a good old-fashioned resignation (check out our Features for Theresa’s top dance move throwdowns).
The only way I can describe this playlist is if someone slapped Carly Rae Jepsen in the middle of Julien. It’s energetic, aggressive and ready to kick your ass. When the barista at Starbucks gets your name wrong, hit em’ strong with this fire mix.
