JB: Buro 24/7 Singapore Playlist #105

Sail away

Text: JB

DJ and vinyl enthusiast, JB, shares 10 tunes to soothe your soul in troubled times

This playlist spans across genres, making you travel from jazz, soul, hip-hop, nu-funk, disco, afrobeat and house, slowly building up while introducing the green shoots of the summer. It starts with Idris Muhammad's 'Piece of Mind' which transports you to a summer evening in NYC, like a scene from those '70s classic movies. That feeling of freedom in you is waking up and it's time to jump on a boat, preferably one that sails to the sound of Donald Byrd blowing his 'Wind Parade' as you head south to Brazil.

Freshly landed, you take a stroll along one of those golden beaches with Pete Dunaway's 'Supermarket' as the orchestration of the song takes you higher in your quest for freedom. Feels good, right? As the sun sets, head back to the boat to pause and watch the show, reflecting on life and what really matters — here's where 'Ease Your Mind'  by the Jazz Liberatorz will help you find an inner peace. Finally, hop back on that boat to cross the Atlantic with 'Blow Your Mind' by Jamiroquai guiding your way. The African coast looms, the temperature is rising and you're here to stay for a while... 

Catch JB at his next club night, The Jam Parlour, feat. special guest Vito (La Mamie's, FR) on 10 June at Kilo Lounge.
