A-Z of your musical career

Recommended Posts

So having been completely inspired by Pete Tong's show back in April on BBC Radio 1, it got me thinking a lot about doing one for myself and of course asking all you guys on here to share and do the same.

Tong was very crafty in the way he went about this - albeit rather intellectually, but I don't think it was fair how, on some tracks, he alocated a track to a letter based on the remotest of detail.

For you and me on here, I hope to make it a lot simpler: the track's artist, title or remixer must be associated with the letter which you are corresponding to. Nationality, genre, label or anything outside of what is bolded are not allowed!

I've added in a "#" to allow for tracks containing numbers, but apart from that, based on the above criteria it's as simple as "A" right through to "Z".

Just before diving in and sharing, I'd like to offer a little advice since this helped me a great deal and I realised how easier it is when I really struggled to look for titles to fil in the missing entries; don't look at your record collection! Instead, just think off the top of your head and do a brain dump of tracks and then re-jig them... You tend to reminisce and contemplate way too much and begin to question what you've already put down when looking back through the collection...

My selection is based on the premise of not necessarily how good the tracks have been or are, but trying to be true to the point of what's an A-Z of my musical career which included things like what actually got me in to the music scene, through to, what tracks really resonated with me right to what went down frequently in my sets. So, without further a do, here goes:
