Driving around southern Spain a couple of weeks ago I thought the best music for the car should be Spanish radio. Cue two days later going mad at all the talk and oldie hit stations. And the three tracks resembling anything current were in permanent rotation: Duffy's Mercy, Amy's Rehab and Leona's bleeding Bleeding Love. Fuck me. And then along came Maxima FM. Like a breath of fresh air, this station popped up somewhere outside Seville playing dance music back-to-back. Then, weirdly, I found this CD with their current playlist, Maxima Tentacion Vol. 8. It's THE perfect music for an air-conned drive through the quiet mountain roads of Las Alpujarras or the traffic-choked highways through Malaga. Here's a selection from said CD alongside my holiday snaps...
