DJ T., DJ Hell on Get Physical Comp
When a press release starts with the question "Have you ever asked yourself what song you'd like to be played at your funeral?", we're ready to sit up and take note. Said statement comes from Berlin-based powerhouse Get Physical, who announced a new series, Final Song, which asks "a number of musicians to select their ideal last song, either to serenade their final moments or to memorialize them after the fact." Which basically means the label has commissioned artists to pick they're favorite funeral jams.
The compilation series will kick off on February 6, with the straightforwardly titled Final Song #1. Here, DJ T., Giles Peterson, DJ Hell, Ewan Pearson, Ricardo Villalobos, and others have selected songs by everyone from Photek to Radiohead as their ultimate final tracks. Cheery this compilation is probably not, but the tracklisting looks like a promising listen nonetheless.
