One of my favourite things I did last year – was play a bunch of records at The Golden Dawn as part of a trip up to Auckland to visit some family. It was a great long weekend and I really loved that Golden Dawn place and had a blast playing some records there. It was a fun set to play…some favourite tunes, a lot that I spin regularly, and then – as always – a few new ones peeking in.
I’ve just booked another spot at the venue (details up later, I’ll be there in late February on a Friday night doing the 5-8pm slot) and that made me revisit last year’s set of tunes and based entirely on that I offer a new playlist, Some Songs I Played At The Golden Dawn. A three-hour playlist of funk and soul and 80s pop and some early garage rock’n’roll and other nostalgic favourites of mine. You might like it.
