Good morning folks. The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that my usual daily rigour has taken a tumble this week. It’s clear that I’m having trouble in the heat. And so, I will set aside the blog posts this weekend for a summer hiatus.
I have been featuring the sounds and sounds of 1996 in the last few posts and today is no different. Chicane is/was an alias for British producer Nick Bracegirdle. In 1996, he struck ambient gold with ‘Offshore’. It was the sound of Ibiza in 1996. The signature piano reminded of Chris Rea. Have a great summer all… I’ll be back in September.
