For background music during a long outdoor party a client asked us to suggest some artistes that are less known in this country.

A difficult request – not because of any shortage of tracks, but how to choose?  There are thousands of excellent tracks which, for whatever reason, have perhaps not caught on in England.

We provided a random selection of those which (as far as we recalled) we have never had requested but we’d be delighted to play.

He marked those that appealed to him, and we developed a playlist from there.

A selection from the initial list which we sent to him:
