GCRS's sound of segregation
I don't like Mondays, crooned The Boomtown Rats, but with a specially chosen Spotify playlist from an expert in the field, that situation could easily change.
If your chosen radio station is already getting on your wick, you've exhausted your playlists and you can't stand to listen to Eric Carmen's All By Myself one more time, then this could provide some respite.
If ever there was a time for a music it is now.
“If ever there was a time for a music it is now, " says Castle. "As sound designers, we create an emotional response through music for our clients on a daily basis. We’ve selected a special playlist to keep everyone calm and uplifted in these testing times.
"Most of the tracks are focused on the lo-fi house sound. The driving beats of house music gives you the pulse to get up and move while the lo-fi sound makes you feel relaxed and sink into the music at the same time. A lot of this music is repetitive which allows you to get lost in the tracks and almost represents the fact that we have to keep moving, regardless of the circumstances.
Sometimes sadder sounding tracks can actually make us feel better in testing times.
There is a mix of happier uplifting sounds such a Peggy Gou Starry Night, which always makes me feel great when I listen to it, and more emotionally moving songs like Lapalux’s Without You, which has a reflective quality to it. Sometimes sadder sounding tracks can actually make us feel better in testing times. Jon Hopkins' Immunity is so perfectly named as it almost forces you to take a deep breath.”
