By Jo Phillips

Everyone loves a sunshine playlist. Even when we are stuck at home we need to be reminded about the simple good things in life. We asked Parisian DJ Adam Green to give us his sunshine playlist to share with you. Below are his suggestions for us a sunshine playlist to lift your spirits.

Adam is a DJ of London origin and based in Paris for more than twenty-five years, has played in many Parisian party spots, often alongside his friend Nick V. Play’s disco, house, afro, broken beat, drum and bass, techno, new wave, electro, jazz-funk, erm, his taste is very large…thank you, Adam, this is sure to raise all our spirits. Our Final tune is a celebration of the late great Bill Whithers who died earlier this month
