What do you want to hear more of in 2017?

More noise bands.

What do you want to hear less of in 2017?

I’d love to hear less of that Ed Sheeran. My god. And Dj Khaled. I really hate their music and to make matters worse, they’re literally on in every cab I get so I either have to grin and bear it or look like a dick and ask the cabbie to turn it off.

What do you listen on?

I used to use Sennheiser Urbanite headphones which were great but the padding on each ear has since perished so I’ve upgraded to a pair of V-moda Crossfade M-100’s. I’ve got a Denon DP-300F record player at home with a pair of Wharfedale Diamond speakers.

Where do you find new music?

A lot of my friends are either in bands or work in the music industry so I often hit a few of them up for recommendations for what’s new and exciting. On top of that I listen to a lot of NTS and KEXP radio stations which are both great for discovering music and I still have a lot of PR agents sending me new albums from the days where I ran a music site….So try to keep on top of things as much as I can.

Guilty pleasure?

Oh for me it’s 80’s power ballads and pop songs, Wang Chung, Rod Stewart (although I’m not guilty about him) Genesis…..Anything on the GTA Vice City soundtrack. You get thew picture.
