Cracker Mini Mix: Dawn

I heard a song last week that I couldn’t quite fit into a ‘regular’ time of day. It made me think of that early half light when your eyes have opened accidentally, or if your night out is turning into morning. But one of my favourite associations with dawn (yup, that time of day has a word and I know it!) is one of those rare moments when you know you have a relaxed day ahead and can may be let your toes uncurl one by one. The song that inspired this scientific breakthrough of solar proportions is ‘Clean’ by The Japanese House. It’s so deliciously lazy and full at the same time. The best part? It reminds me utterly and deeply of Imogen Heap’s ‘Goodnight and Go’. I’ve put together a baby playlist of songs for dawn, including Jamie Woon’s lush latest,  tracks from Maribou State, Alina Baraz & Galimatias, Angel Haze AND the classic Kaytranada rework of ‘Be Your Girl’. I close with the soft but heavily raw Ben Khan because by this time I’m sure the sun has risen! Happy crusty eyes and lazy lashes!
