Buro 24/7 Singapore Playlist #61: Nick Barnett

Fresh beets

Former New York radio show host and DJ turned grocer, Nick Barnett, shares his playlist for a post-dinner dance party

As a recent Singapore transplant, these songs have been on repeat keeping me company, and are much of the inspiration for our Little Farms playlist (am I allowed to brag that I think we've got the best music for any grocery store globally?).

While Royksopp's sound has changed over the years, it doesn't get better than So Easy from their debut album: Emotionally upbeat downtempo that can perfectly start any night. Paradis' ability to combine the sensuality of traditional French pop with the energy of modern house music is incredible, and their take on '80s French pop star Alain Chamfort's Paradis shows exactly why. Frankie Knuckles' remix of Blind just goes without saying: An instant classic that gets any dance floor going. Kenton Slash Demon have released some of my favorite music over the years, and Harpe tops them all with just pure good vibes. Grab someone's hand and get dancing.

I changed things up to end the set with Pional's version of
We Have Been Waiting for You. This song manages to capture a sense of summer's carefree wonder, and is a perfect way to end the night.
