A monthly playlist of music curated by one of our sponsored athletes. A chance to delve into their mind, explore their tastes and hopefully come away with some new music to listen to.
This month, Jordan Lea!
So, when It comes down to music, I love a mixture of everything varying from Rock, Metal, R&B, Hip Hop, Drum and Bass, Grime, the whole shebang really. However, mainly my playlists consist of R&B and Hip Hop! The playlist I have created for you to dive into contains some of my favourite songs and not necessarily because of the song itself, a lot of these songs have incredible memories linked to them and that is why I enjoy them so much.
For example, my first ever “Supertramp” adventure to Spain I literally cooked myself on my camping mat. We had an amazing cliff jumping day and finished off with some sunbathing then stupid me sunbathed on my REFLECTIVE foil camping mat. I was absolutely lobster-ed, however, that night we slept on some amazing cliffs looking out towards the sea and all I remember is chilling in my hammock, in a lot of pain with my headphones in listening to Guatemala by Rae Sremmurd. Regardless of the pain, it was one of the best moments in my life so far. Therefore, that song has always stuck and will always have such an impact when I listen to it! That is the case with most of these songs I have added to the playlist, they all fall back to some memory with an impactful experience.
Through my years of listening to Spotify, my music taste has definitely been influenced by friends. Although this playlist is mainly R&B and Hip Hop, I've noticed recently my taste has slowly been leaning more towards the heavy side of things, like metal and rock. Mainly due to the fact the people around me are into that taste of music and also Rap just is not cutting it for my gym sessions right now. I am slowly getting into the late stages of my training program where the intensity is getting quite high and I'm telling you now, metal is necessary for lifting. It helps so much with getting that last rep in. So, anybody doing any weight training and doesn't listen to metal, give it a try!
All of the songs in the playlist I have created are mostly a quite chill vibe which is very nice for travelling. If you have listened to the “Motus Prodcast” featuring me you will hear in the music minute section I am very much into an artist called Bryson Tiller. A good few songs in this playlist are by him and his style of music definitely defines the taste of music I am most fond of. If you enjoy his songs within this playlist, I would definitely recommend his album “Trapsoul”. I hope you enjoy and if you are curious about any other funny memories I have linked to certain songs feel free to send me a message on Instagram!
