… You’ll be able to listen to some of the greatest musicians of all time, like Harry Nilsson, Nina Simone, Beatles and Paul Simon – but I’ve also put in some lesser known artists that I hope that you will start exploring, such as Margo Guryan and Kim Jung Mi.
It’s meant to be enjoyed while doing something lovely and quintessentially spring-like, such as taking a walk in a park and enjoying the sunshine, but I leave it up to you.

 

About Oda

“I have been insatiably curious about music for as long as I can remember. I’ve always wanted to know what song that is, what kind of music came before it, who was inspired by it, and so on. So it was perhaps a natural step that I started collecting music, and eventually also started DJ-ing.

At home I listen to most kinds of music, but my main genre is jazz. When I DJ I have one rule: I play whatever makes me dance, and hope that that makes other people dance too. That means that most of the music I play is soul, funk, psychedelic and rock, since that is what makes me tap my toes. But I never put restrictions on what kind of music to play, which means that you shouldn’t be surprised if I all of a sudden play a disco song, or a 90ies hit. After all, good music is good music, no matter the label you put on it.”

Playlist – Cover Story

I've always loved a good cover. It gives you a chance to enjoy a song you like in a new way. I also love that there is no end to what you can do with a song. Change the tempo? Yes please. Change the genre? Of course. Change the language? Bien sûr!
