John Taylor New Year’s Mix Tape!

December 31st, 2014

“Paul from Manimal asked me if I would do another year-end Soundcloud playlist, like we did last year. I wasn’t sure I wanted to, as I’ve been so caught up in mixing the new Duran Duran album I almost didn’t want to give serious head space to any other music but ours. However .. music is so damn important to me – sometimes I think it’s the very blood that keeps my heart pumping – I realized I did want to give a shout out to some of the beats and bars that have gotten me through the four seasons of 2014. I lack the cojones to D.J., but if I was to be invited to spin a few sounds at your New Year’s party, this is the kind of mix-up you could expect to hear. Enjoy!” — John Taylor, December 31, 2014
