Not long ago we posted a running mix compiled (nay, created, in godlike fashion) by our friend David. He’s an uber-music nerd – he would not balk at that description – and a long-time runner so he really knows his playlist stuff. As you are such very excellent runners yourselves, he has graciously provided another.
This one is a favourite of ours – it saw one of nicely round the Eccup 10 mile race this summer and has seen both of us through many a Sunday run. The great thing about David’s mixes is that you never know what to expect so they stay fresh for a long, long time.
Here’s what he has to say about it Mercury Venus Disco Mars:
Mercury Venus is a year or two old, and was an attempt to harness all the crazy new Italo-disco influenced tunes that were eminating from Scandinavia, Europe and the US, plus a few Italo classics like Alexander Robotnick and a bit of leftfield nuttiness from the likes of Can. I threw in a bit of a spoken word commentary from Carl Sagan and even a bit of Stephen Hawking to really tie in the space meets disco feel. It’s burns slowly and then it explodes across the sky. Or that might just be me.
Here’s some info on David, in case you missed it last time:
David Allison is a television and film screenwriter. He’s also a music nerd and a keen runner. His full and proper, grown up bio can be found here (but basically he’s a genius creative who writes things like Bedlam – yes, he’s that cool).
