Spanish people can be cool too!


I love it.

I think everybody who knows me knows that. One of the things I was truly dreading about coming to Spain was being away from the music I liked. I expected to hear nothing but Spanish language music and the occasional mainstream international chart success.

That’s why Vogue surprised me. We only went in cuz one of our group needed a rest stop on the way back to our apartment but when I saw the sign on entering:

Sala 1: Indie, 70s, 80s, 90s, Rock

Sala 2: Electro

my heart skipped a beat. If you had asked me a week ago what I expected to hear in a club in Granada my answer would not have been “Trash” by The Whip. Vogue was a very welcome surprise.

To commemorate this joyous occasion I’ve made another mixtape.
