Welcome! I'm glad you could join us for the latest paulcast. We have a special treat for the masses out there as I'm collaborating for the first time on a mix! Let me welcome, my friend, Mr. Chris Molyneux...
"I am a huge music fan, and after hearing the stellar (and still favourite) ‘Make You Wait’ last year, I became a huge fan of Paulcasts. After one too many conversations about music, and a realization of a shared taste in tunes, we decided to make a collaborative mash-up. I was really excited to combine Paul’s vast experience in mixing, talent, and encyclopaedic knowledge of music, with my... well... my enthusiasm. We both put on our thinking caps, and Paul took it from there.
In the spirit of Paulcasts, we filled this mix with fun music. Artists with songs that were about good times, like Beastie Boys, Avalanches, Daft Punk, Notorious, The Strokes, Matt & Kim, Bjork, Kanye, Nelly Furtado, Michael Jackson, k-os, and yes, Bobby Brown and Fine Young Cannibals. Songs that “make the sun shine when it’s cloudy and gray”, so we figured the title fit.
So rock this mp trois on your Sony Walkmens like it was Dance Mix 92, and have a fun time being alive."
