While the tradition of Sunday partying calmed down with the death of yacht rock, our friends over at Where The Week Ends are doing their best to relight the flame of the Sunday session.
Prolonging the fear just that bit longer and serving up Monday hangovers across East London, their formula of records, roasts and the regular crew hits the spot for the perfect wind down. Catch them weekly at The Cat & Mutton on London Fields…
Here they deal out their Sunday playlist. It’s all over the place but served up with a lot of heart. Amen.
Warp 9 – ‘Light Years Away’
“Big release from the Kat Record gang. This one’s a spaced-out electro whopper as powerful as a tobacco-fuelled Bloody Mary to clear those heads.”
Gil Scott-Heron – ‘The Bottle’ (Mr Mendel Edit)
“Stumbled across this one after falling down an endless Youtube rabbit hole. Dutch DJ with some impressive edits, this one’s our favourite…”
Jamie XX – ‘Sleep Sound’
“Loving this release right now…Sunday approved.”
Diana Ross – ‘Upside Down’
“One of our guests, Lemmy Ashton, dropped this one a few weeks back: tables were climbed and voices were broken. Diana’s still got it.”
Dolly Parton – ‘Potential New Boyfriend’
“A guilty pleasure and one for the crew…you know who you are.”
Gwen McRae – ‘All This Love That I’m Giving’
“Total classic, forget about the Cassius re-work…smooth like gravy.”
Joe Smooth – ‘Promised Land’
“Huge record that we could play on repeat if we were allowed. (Luckily for some) we can’t but it does make a weekly appearance.”
Guynamukat – ‘Enjoy Your Life’ (Afro Disco Edit)
“For the summer sessions…Guynamukat brings the sunshine to even the darkest corners of this East End boozer.”
Head High – ‘Burning’ (Keep Calm Mix)
“The black sheep of this playlist: we’re waiting for the moment we can line this one up…it may never come but there’s always hope.”
Grandmaster & Melle Mel – ‘White Lines’
