The insider spoke at length with Lovebirds and Declan last week about the EP, living in Berlin and loads more for Le Visiteur. Lovebirds also crafted a brilliant mix for us. You can check both here.

Top top off our love for the EP we also asked Lovebirds if he could choose 10 tracks which have he absolutely loves for us, as you might expect its a pretty incredible list.

1. Billy Cobham – Heather

As so many times I came across this one through a hip hop sample (93 till infinity) … it’s probably the track that touches me the most, emotionally. Rhodes by George duke!

2. Marta Acuna – Dance, Dance, Dance Dance, (Disco Version)

My favourite producer – Patrick Adams. The underground Quincy. Pure soul & disco at it’s best.

3. L.T.D. – Love Ballad

This is perfection.

4. Minnie Riperton – Inside My Love

What a journey of a song: from sad to happy, minor to major and of course that famous breakdown that a Tribe Called Quest used so nicely.

5. Chic – I Want Your Love

I think this track got me into disco. It made its way even to that small town in northern Germany with it’s irresistible, arpeggiated strings and horns.

6. Kashif – I Just Gotta Have You (Lover Turn Me On)

This album … the songs, the production, the engineering, it just blows my mind every time I put it on.

7. Michael Jackson – I Cant Help It

The trifactor of genius: MJ, Quincy and Stevie.

8. Change – Glow Of Love

God those Italians can do some amazing music! With Luther Vandross on vocals before he became “Luther”!

9. Fleetwood Mac – Dreams

Another example of how amazing the late 70s were.

10. Jamiroquai – Blow My Mind

Yeah he really blew my mind back then …(Literally dancing while putting it on now)
