Laid back self-isolation mix #1

Olivia Laing, The Lonely City: Adventures in the Art of Being Alone

Hi my friends. I am going to start doing semi-regular playlists of music that are laid back, joyful, soul warming. Music that will help you to get through hard times in self-isolation, particularly if you are separated from those you love, or if you are feeling lonely.

These mixes will be eclectic styles – house, ambient, world, 70’s soul, jazz, big beat, hip-hop a bit of Polish funk thrown in. Anything that makes you feel good. Best heard with good quality headphones. 4

Also just putting it out there, if anyone wants to have a chat, shoot me a private message and we can do a whatsapp chat or exchange some emails. It’s physical isolation not social isolation after all, so let’s stick together.

    1. Yeah I know right! I actually can’t get all the credit for these finds, although I will take it hehe. A person called Hardcore Kochanie (Polish) or Hardcore darling on You Tube has an absolutely epic playlist of favourites where I discovered a lot of these. A mix of 70s funk, triphop, psychedelic, underground rock music. Sorry that I dont post my real name on here, I try and avoid it because sometimes I post about personal stuff and it could be considered controversial for my job. I like being called Catnip 🐱 on here anyway hehe thank you for your lovely feedback on my blog Kev and I’m enjoying listening to your chapters, take care mate. 😉


      1. The Polish stuff is awesome Catnip. I should have known it would be. Finding good new music is almost the best thing in the world. Bunging on the headphones and plugging into fresh sounds helps me work – so cheers! 🙂 🙂
