HEAVEN 17 Best H17



This is a personal compilation that I did in 2009 and that is still one of my favourites.
Nothing much to say as I really love this band. It was a companion for many years. When they were at their best and after they split. The songs never lost the magic and spirit for me.

DANGEROUS ORANGE Aversion (2008)

Today I want to introduce you to the electronica project from Dave Younger called DANGEROUS ORANGE.
He runs a studio called The Control Centre and you can find and download lots of sound samples of analog synths and drum loops.
And now guess what DANGEROUS ORANGE sounds like. I really love this stuff as it is pretty relaxed and decent.
This here is the album from 2008. Find more on bandcamp here.
