Oyster Playlist: Wave Racer

'My favourite old songs.'
Solo bro Wave Racer just played with Nina Las Vegas' One Night Stand and it was so awesome, we had to ask him to make us a playlist. The Sydney electronic artist was feeling nostalgic, so he chose a theme that's simple and to the point — 'my favourite old songs.' They're some of our favourites too! Reminisce about that time (yesterday) when it was the weekend, below.
 
Shalamar - 'A Night To Remember'
I loveeee disco music. This is probably my fave disco tune of all time.
 
The Emotions - 'Best of My Love'
Probably my 2nd fave disco tune of all time. I also sampled this in a previous musical project. It's just too good.

 
Justin Timberlake - 'Cry Me A River'
This song and video gives me really crazy nostalgia haha... and I love JT.
 
Earth, Wind & Fire - 'September'
Do you rememberrrrrrrrr.
 
Electric Light Orchestra - 'Mr. Blue Sky'
I'm a big E.L.O. fan and this is easily my fave from them. Mmm dat vocoder.
 
Queen - 'Killer Queen'
Picking a fave Queen song is probably the most difficult task ever but there's just something about Killer Queen...
 
David Bowie - 'Changes'
Love David Bowie - this is my fave by him. The chorus gets me everytime :')
 
The Flaming Lips - 'Fight Test'
Seeing The Flaming Lips play live was the closest I've ever come to having a religious experience, haha. This song takes me back to seeing them play when I was about 15, still the best concert I've ever been to.
 
The Whispers - 'Keep On Lovin' Me'
The Whispers are amazing, and have been sampled in so many awesome tracks. Keep your eye on the guy in the orange jacket in the video for a good LOL.
 
Brandy - 'I Wanna Be Down'
Easily one of my fave R&B songs, Brandy has got dat voice.
