End of the Year Show - Question 18

Spotify vs. Apple Music vs. YouTube Music: Which is best for your  hard-earned cash?


18. What artist or band do you always recommend when someone asks for a music recommendation?

I am going to show my age a tad here, but I go with the following;

Artist: Gary Numan as I have loved his stuff, even when members of the press and UK public did not.

Artists: Depeche Mode, because I am a hardcore fan and when the UK press didn’t take to them long term, they made it in the States - hahaha.  Plus Dave Gahan is my Elvis from Essex, who is one of those rare individuals that gets better with age.

Honourable Mention: Massive Attack, because they have an interestingly layered sound (albeit sampled from other people’s work).

Ditto Tricky, who has shared history with M/A and has a similar approach to layering.
