N°V Playlist July 2012
It’s summer solstice in the north, winter in the south and monsoon season in between. The Olympic season is also opening in a couple of weeks so I’m sure it will be an exciting time for London this time of year. But wherever you are in the planet I hope you’ll be able to enjoy this month’s playlist because I made it extra perky for those summer road trips, 4th of July celebrations or days when it’s warm and dry enough to enjoy the outdoors. The album cover’s inspiration is the late great Brion Gysin - the inventor of the Dreamachine which I’ve been meaning to make and I’m sure one of these days I’ll come around to actually set up and experience personally. This month also marks the album launch of my best friend and partner in crime, who after almost five years is finally going to debut her complete album on her birthday on the 19th. She’s also the fantastic closer of this month’s playlist.
Many thanks to those who’ve commented about the playlist on Demonoid.com, Facebook and last.fm. Hope you get a kick out of this one and share the music with your friends. ‘Till next month! 
Enjoy! xxx

N°V Playlist June 2012
Well, here we are halfway through the year and another playlist for the month of June. I have to say I’m glad I took my playlist online because I’ve become acquainted with some pretty incredible people who share the same enthusiasm as I do when it comes to music.
This month’s opening track was inspired by a track from Evol Intent called Foreword where they sampled a rant made by TV anchor Howard Beale from the 1976 movie “Network” (which I personally think is a must-see for most people). I couldn’t include the track because it didn’t go with the rest of the music so I decided to make one myself. I used the beat from the bridge of “New World Order” and sampled the speech and voila, instant intro track! 
Hope you like this month’s Playlist! (I have to scoot will edit this later! :D)
Enjoy! xxx

N°V Playlist May 2012
The hills are alive with the sound of failed N. Korean rocket launches and Titanic redux… I know it doesn’t rhyme but I mentioned them because it fit my album artwork for this month. I’ve not seen the Titanic movie in years but now people have the chance of reliving the tragedy all over again in 3D. Who could forget that iconic scene where they made that distress call after they realised that their ‘unsinkable’ ship was headed for disaster after they hit that iceberg? Personally, I’d rather watch Julie Andrews prancing on a hillside singing about hills and logs praying but that’s just me. And speaking go distress calls, putting up this month’s playlist proved to be a bit problematic. It all started with the choice of which song makes the cut out of around 80+ songs. Then there were encoding problems and other mishaps that almost felt like it was all a chore and not the creative outlet that I originally intended this project to be. But, that’s all behind me now the only thing that matters is that everything’s done right on schedule.
This month’s playlist is all about electronic music, specifically synth pop. Kicking things off with an obscure track from the synth pop group Propaganda to open and set the mood for the whole set. There’s also a great selection of great indie/folk tracks on here and a spectacular progressive rock closer by Steven wilson which is a recent discovery of mine. I do hope you enjoy this month’s playlist and if you have any song/artist that you would like to recommend, feel free to give me a shout out. It’s always great to find out about new music. Until next month…
Enjoy! xxx

N°V Playlist April 2012
I’ve been looking forward to posting this month’s playlist because it’s an extra special playlist because of two things. My friend, Pancit made a very gorgeous cover befitting the contents of this month’s playlist and I’m so glad I asked him to do it. It started last month when I asked my friend, Mia if I could use one of her artworks for my March playlist and so Pancit volunteered to do the April one and I must say that I am quite ecstatic with how it turned out. Gotta love it when you have plenty of artistic friends to do stuff for you for free!
I do hope you enjoy this month’s playlist. I’ve been playing it non-stop and it’s my current fave (I know, I always say that!) It’s also worth mentioning that a big chunk of the artists featured on this month’s playlist are from the land down under. I didn’t include any cover songs this month and most of the songs are fairly recent. I’ll keep this short because I have to get back to the real world and do some boring ‘grown up’ stuff . See you next month!
Enjoy! xxx

N°V Playlist March 2012
Another month done and it’s time for a new playlist! I have to say that this month’s playlist was a tug of war of sorts. I originally planned to make a perky and blissful set of music but soon as I started with my opener, Ágætis Byrjun — the mood went into a different direction. I don’t know if you’ve noticed (not that anyone cares), but there are a few prerequisites/staples in my playlists - 1. A beautiful cover song of which is equal or sometimes even better than the original. 2. An instrumental track which I use as a ‘palate rinser’ to cross from one section and usher in the next. 3. Finally, there has to be a song done by a French artist - it’s a must. That’s my blueprint.
Anyway, as I was trying to do my short list of songs and adding more upbeat tracks, it just didn’t seem to meld with the rest of the set, so I said, fuck it and just let the music take me where it wanted to go. The result is a full-on downtempo playlist which I have to say is my favourite of the lot (so far).  I’m not sure how well the reception to this one will be since it’s more somber than the others but someone out there might like it as much as I do. I always find it amusing how one person will tell me that they like this playlist better and someone else will prefer the other. Variety is always good so if this moth doesn’t tickle your fancy, you can always go back to my previous playlists or wait for the next issue next month. If you do decide to give this one a listen, you’ll be assured that it will start with a “Pretty Good Beginning” (Ágætis Byrjun), and it will conclude as a “Lifetime Ends” (Ævin Endar).

Outrageous slogans - We’ve all seen them. The all-new-all-improved-better-than-your-grandmother’s-and-a-must-have-that-you-just-have-to-get-right-this-very-second. So many fantastic claims until you read the fine print - the product/model was enhanced and altered beyond recognition that she has stepped into the realm of science fiction. That’s how I feel about love. Sometimes it just fails to live up to my expectations.
Since February has been dubbed the ‘Love’ month, I’ve put together a playlist with the many faces of love. I originally planned a list of songs with the word ‘love’ in all of the titles then after kicking myself on the head for coming up with too literal an idea, this is what I finally came up with. We have the the naive ingénue (My Love, F*cking Boyfriend), The jilted ex (Skinny Love, Bleeding All Over You), the stalker (Password), the desperate housewife (Better Man) and the courtesan (Love For Sale). We have a Prince followed by a Queen, heck, we even have an appearance by the first lady of France with a brilliant encore by the fab four all in 29 tracks (because it’s a leap year). I had a hard time cramming in just 29 songs that I had to make a Beatles Suite and spliced together three songs so it would fit the 29 track number.  
I hope you like this compilation as much as the last one which has gotten so many good reviews. Thank you!  
p.s. 
If you’ve not heard Sade’s ‘Love is found’, pop those headphones in, take a walk and wait for your heart to go boboom, boboom.

This is my N°V (pronounced “numero veh”) playlist for the new year and the theme for January is ‘Spectrum’. It’s a spectrum of sonic bliss - from the highs of the idea of the new year to the lows on the realisation that it’s all illusory because after all, we’re just going on a linear progression through space-time (but that’s another story!). 2012 is also a significant marker for the Mayans. Now whether or not we all end up going to hell in a hand basket in 12 months or if it’s all a fluke is anyone’s guess. One thing I know at least is we’ll have some good music. So, for whatever it’s worth, have a fantastic 2012!
N°V January is equal parts fun, chill with a dash of cheeky bits added for good measure. Enjoy! xxx
