This week’s playlist has been compiled by Jamie Christie, also known as the music producer JJ Christie. Jamie is from Australia and has played as a bass player and lead vocalist in heavy rock bands, but the music he makes under his own name is synth based.
There is often a spacey feel to a tune from JJ Christie, and genre-wise he covers a broad spectrum from synthwave through to trance and ambient electronica. Jamie says his goal is to “produce multi layered textures and soundscapes resembling a tapestry of sounds, evolving and morphing into a palette of auditory experiences”. I’d say he achieves that – his tunes really take you on a bit of a journey.
JJ Christie is also the founder of the Filtersweep Collective, a record label, which caters to the Synthwave, Darksynth, Electronica, and Industrial genres.
This playlist is all about having a lazy morning lie-in at the weekend, or for lounging around the house, perhaps with a newspaper or book in hand. It has a light and bright feel about it.
