I built and ran this website between 2000 and 2001, combining passion for popular music and programming. It was listed by MTV's now defunct MusicNewswire as one of the then nascent web's top twenty sources, alongside Billboard and VH1. The most exciting part of it — for a 13/14-year-old excited by new music — was receiving scores of pre-release CDs from record companies. The entire project was written entirely from scratch (frameworks and libraries were not the norm back then!) in PHP linking to a MySQL database, with HTML as well as a little CSS and JavaScript for the frontend; the code is available here.

Playgroup - Number One

PlaygroupPlaygroup is the brainchild of Trevor Jackson, known to hip-hop heads as the Underdog. He's remixed over sixty tracks for the likes of U2, Massive Attack, Unkle and Death In Vegas.

This is the culmination of the man's musical career. The sound he has produced is familiar, yet still very original.

Number One is the opener on Playgroup's eponymous album. It features Luca Santucci on hooky vocals over a fantastically funky bass-line. The track is incredibly funky, a quick bass under those catchy vocals.

Very, very funky.
