These days when I write it has to be electronica. Ideally mixed by Dutch or Detroit based DJs. Weird. Where did that come from right? But I find electronica in all its forms, especially techno and house, really help drown out the ambient noise in my head. It’s beats and no lyrics. So no distracting voices in my head. … other than the ones I hear when I write. Ha! Ha! Now you’re probably thinking I’m a bit schizophrenic which I probably am.
This one here by the Chemical Brothers (Hey Girl. Hey Boy), is my warm up track. Cannot. Explain. Why. But it gets me going, gets me to fire up the keyboard and kick off the words. Yes, it’s a well known track, wish I could pick out a more obscure one, but hey, no telling for taste is there? Like books which catch the readers’ fancy, some tunes too just stick in your head
