About this Playlist
Sometimes I’ve been quick to take up and use new technology, sometimes incredibly slow, I was the last person in my circle of friends and work environment to get a mobile phone, now like everyone across the world it’s like a extra limb. I thought youtube was just for folk sharing cute pet and family videos and as for Facebook, why would I want to share with people what I had for dinner or other pointless stuff, yes people still do all those things, but in the same year 2013, I discovered YouTube was an excellent source of music and Facebook could be a great source to share any new discoveries with friends, quickly coming across groups and the idea of a music discovery group began, from adding one friend and another and them adding their friends with similar musical passions within a year we were 150 strong and the hive mind of T.R.O.Y shared some quality music.
The group was named ‘They Reminisce Over You’ named after the Pete Rock and CL Smooth as the group tended to share music from the past, reminiscing over their youth, quickly burning through the classics, we had to dig deeper, the group grew to about 350 members and shared well over 4000 tracks, oh and I also disovered the joys of Spotify in December 2013 (told you I was a bit slow on the catch up) so the playlisting journey began, collating all these wonderful discoveries, as the tag line for the group goes ‘ You can never know everything, have everything or hear everything’ but the hive mind of T.R.O.Y had a bloody good go.
As these things do the groups slowed down over the years, I myself have moved more into finding and sharing new music but the group is still a great source for some cracking tunes, here is just a small selection of them.
