Future Punx: Livin’ In A Movie

RJD2's private holiday jam, Rollo Grady's CMJ mix, Shit Robot and more in our look at music this week

“I generally try not to acknowledge the existence of a musical ‘guilty pleasure’ because I think treating music as some kind of cultural trophy hunting, or game of cool, denigrates the role music can play in our lives,” explains musician RJD2 in our request for his #PrivateJam. “But I’m going to play along on this one song, only ’cause I’ve heard multiple people say that enjoying the song should be shameful, even if I don’t agree: ‘Wonderful Christmastime’ by Paul McCartney. It’s got a killer synth line, it’s simple yet interesting enough not to make you bored, and, I don’t know, I just like it. Go ahead, let the hate flow through you freely!”
