A selection from ever-eclectic Manchester don and DJ Pablo, who refused to toe the line and stick to ten tracks – you’ll be glad, though.
I was really excited to be asked to put a chart together by Mr Groovement himself, until I started to try and select the tracks. At that point I realised how hard it would be.
I listen to music constantly day and night and have even more so throughout lockdown, just to stay sane. This chart might give a little idea of the eclectic sound of our Irish – Boricua house and is also an accurate representation of the sound of my bank balance crying each month.
Everything from Nu Bossa to Bruk through Tropical Bass, House, Cumbia and sweet Soul included.
Also I’m sorry I broke the rules…
