Everyone has their favourite David Bowie musical era. For me, it was when he teamed up with Brian Eno in 1977 to create "The Berlin Trilogy” of albums – Low, Heroes, andLodger – followed by his hyper pop work with Nile Rodgers on Let’s Dance. He was one of my ultimate synth heroes; a star who revelled in creating everything from ambient electronic soundscapes and chart topping synth pop, to IDB and brutal industrial music. I created this mix to celebrate his massive contribution to electronic music, which was broadcasted live on NTS last night as a tribute to the great man. From the hits to some deep cuts you may not have heard before, take some time out and submerge yourself in an hour of the master’s immortal synth oddities.
