Note from Sodwee
Hey there, this is a brand new series in which Teddy Au Top will be compiling a selection of tracks in reaction to a global-local event, media story or simply a moment deemed important. As an intro, here is a little bio of our new in-house playlist curator : Teddy Au Top / Conor Fitzpatrick. 25yrs. Copenhagen-based Northern Irish electro musician. Found himself in Paris, on a 5yr long feast, which, indeed, turned out to be moveable.

‘Hallo. Hier spricht John Doe.’ Alright, in fact, it’s Teddy Au Top and I don’t have any data to hand over. I have my first playlist X Sodwee, that you can listen to while trawling through coverage of the #PanamaPapers, though. Here’s a rundown of what’s on it…

1. The artist name and title of the first track couldn’t be more fitting here. He’s from Budapest, and not from in-between the Irish sea.

2. I love Nicolas Jaar. This remix is what you’d probably like to listen to on the top floor of the Puerta América, of a June evening, or any floor, because all that tax-free dinero you’ve got in a big dollar bag in the Caribbean would easily pay for the whole thing, for more than one evening. The gravy train home runs the risk of derailing though.

3. Siggy has thrown in the towel… but possibly just to have a short lie-down on Vík í Mýrdal beach. Who knows? Not his PR crew. His compatriot Björk sings of a mushroom on a tree trunk in this song…

4. The KAKKMADDAFAKKA gutter (NO for boyz) put on this King Skurk One one a few weeks ago in Bergen, while we were having some expensive beers. The title means ‘conniption money’… let’s take the word as referring to a fit of anger, to suit the context.

5. Think of all the champagne you could buy with your tax-free dough, chilling on a deck chair in the Caribbean. You could also have lots of french fries to go with it.

6. The Panamanian jungle took a year to navigate through, but now the wood has been sliced and made into paper, printed with the names of the shamed, and published all over.

7. Rather than dark, the paper trails of the fat cats actually lead to some rather sunny sides of the globe: the Caribbean, Monaco… Thumbs up to Nicolas Jaar once again.

Happy listening and keep your money on-shore.

Teddy Au Top
