1. The System – ‘Almost Grown’

“One of my go-to tracks for an instant departure from daily reality. Laden with hooks that never quite seem to leave my brain, it’s raw, dream-inspiring synth pop out of France from back in 1983. No smoke and mirrors here, just a tough bassline, some big drums and some of my favourite synths taking me to my special place.”
