    No rap np hardcore no jungle no garage no grime no oasis. Ideologically suspect. No offence. Not being rude. Just a bit suspect.

    No timbaland no neptunes no wu no oasis no garage no cash money nothing from when your balls were brimming and ample. which makes me wonder how you discovered music. My guess would be radio one, the face, the guardian, maybe gilles and straight no chaser.

    My mum had a pretty decent selection. Lot of radio 1, friend's cooler older brothers & weird late night TV in my pre Internet years (anyone remember The Trip on 4later?} once minidiscs came along that was a game changer. Raiding the local library for spacemen 3 and the like. Also going to college in Kendal at 16 and discovering shit like electric wizard & kyuss on one of my first and still to this day strongest acid experiences. That made a big impression. At the same time there was a Canadian dnb dj i used to hang out with a lot and he was the one who got me into a bunch of electronica and also took me to see Jeff Mills which was the day I realised it didn't have to be all breaks.

    My list would def contain a lot of other stuff Inc jungle which I started listening to in about 94 thanks to 1 in the jungle on R1. Up in the lake district you needed all the help you could get. Majority of the older lot were raving to happy hardcore, hard house and trance. There was this one junkie guy called grog who was reputedly the best dj the lakes had ever seen but had well burnt out by the time I was old enough to be going to raves. He was mates with an older cousin though, and we went round to his one time and he made me a mix tape wihh shit like schooly d on it. Prob around 10/11. Years later after having lived away from the lakes for a while I tried to track him down, but he'd od'd and his collection was now in the hands of a shady character known as the sleb Lord, aka slebby. He played some shit from grogs collection at an afters one time and it blew me away. Have asked about it on here before. Some kind of super deep proto breaks stuff with all Arabic text in 80s nyc wildstyle on the front. That's my musical white whale. No-one knows where sleb is anymore.

    Am on a long bus journey, so I hope that wasn't too tawdry.


    Edit: gilles and peel both need a mention.
    Took a rest stop that wasn't on the schedule

    Interesting. Information didn't really spread and travel in our day did it. It was more viscous.

    Very dependent on state institutions like radio one. And blind luck. Gilles definitely influenced a lot of people, directly and indirectly. Broadened horizons. Peel too. Who are their latter day equivalents? People with that reach I mean, who educate.

    Definitely not up in t'fells n fields of Cumbria.

    Feel the need to mention being handed a cdr with RATM scribbled on it around 15 not knowing anything about them at all. I didn't even have sky at the time so shit was seriously limited. Turns out it was evil empire which I just happened to dl ony phone today. Still brilliant imo. One of the tracks from that would make my list easy.

    It's bread and butter stuff. I like it when people pull no punches too.

    Hollywood soundtracks of the (especially of 80s) was my main listening for a couple of years not so long ago. Could easily do a top 100 soundtracks but it wouldn't be one per artist.

    I took the paved road into most of the stuff on the list from 90s dance music which was my potent era. Easiest genre to do would be detroit techno. More difficult house/garage/rap/other techno.

    Also 100 tracks is easy to do when most of them would be BBC Radio2 track of the day with a few personals thrown in.

    Grog and Sleb Lord sound like characters from a Will Self book.

    Which should give you some indication of how much work I do at my desk

    Cheers man. Great to have as a playlist.

    This is the version of Shy People I like, with the vocals.
