Each day I add music to my soundtrack to 2021 Spotify playlist. Here is the third batch for January.
Thursday 21 January: 65dBA – Purify
“You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you.” says John 15 verse 3 on the fifth day of the national week of prayer. It’s #throwbackthursday as well. To combine the two, I selected Purify (1994) by British band 65dBA.
Friday 22 January: Crucify the Flesh – Bear Fruit
” You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.” says John 15 verse 3 on the sixth day of the national week of prayer. Bear Fruit is metalcore by Crucify the Flesh. Be warned before hitting the play button.
Saturday 23 January: Whiteheart – The Vine
“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.” says John 15 verse 5. American band Whiteheart sang about this on their Redemption (1997) album.
Sunday 24 January: Jazz Music Collection Zone – Overflowing Joy
“I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!” is the final verse from John 15 in this a href=”http://www.weekvangebed.nl”>national week of prayer.
Monday 25 January: KTEE – Push and Pull
Sweat during 45 minutes workout with colleagues via MS Teams. Body and muscles to be pushed and pulled.
Tuesday 26 January: Anderholm – Muzik
What can music be a relief after a full day of work behind the screens! Spotify’s Discover Weekly brought me to Anderholm‘s Delirious EP. I selected Muzik to illustrate the DJ/Producer from Ukraine’s sound.
Wednesday 27 January: Eva No – 100%
Less than 100% is not enough for Eva No (what’s in a name?). Europop (“disco schlager”) fresh off the press.
Thursday 28 January: Owl City & DC Talk – Jesus Freak
Adam Young aka Owl City (remember Fireflies?) remixed DC Talk‘s Jesus Freak (1995). Enjoy #throwbackthursday
Friday 29 January: Porter Robinson – Look at the Sky
Porter Robinson is back with new music after a six years hiatus. Look at the Sky is the lead single from the upcoming Nurture (23 April 2021) album.
Saturday 30 January: Trance Wax & Moya Brennan – Rivers
The first lady of Celtic music, Moya Brennan blended again her voice to a DJ/producer. This time, Rivers, is the uplifting vocal trance track produced by Trance Wax, an alias of Belfast’s Garry McCartney, also known as Ejeca.
Sunday 31 January: Syelle – Plus là
Syelle is a French-Canadian emergent artist based in Montreal. Plus là (“Not There Anymore”) talks about the unfulfilled passion of two lovers parting ways. Don’t confuse this with my personal circumstance. I’m still married with children 🙂 Syelle is the rebranded version or new identity of Alexe B. Leduc, for many years a passionate Jesus follower and faithful defender of the progress of the Church, a fervent worship leader in Axe21 Music, and the devoted wife of an influential pastor. After her divorce, she said farewell to that woman and re-emerged as Syelle.
