Songs of Proves: August

We’ve been working for a couple of months now on curating music playlists to share, as both of us are music lovers and have both spent chunks of our careers immersed in new music and sharing music content, so we jump at any opportunity to continue fusing our passion for music and food every now and then…

We’ve dubbed our monthly YouTube playlists the ‘Songs of Proves’ for a number of reasons. It’s a play on ‘Songs of Praise’, obviously, but the ‘proves’ part focuses on the importance of music in the kitchen and the symbiosis between food and music. We want to create playlists that people turn on and get inspired to cook along to; music that’s fun to cook along to and music that helps get stuff done in the kitchen.

For August’s #SongsOfProves we have a nice mix of mellow beats mixed in with some pop tracks, plus one or two that scream summer, as it slowly drifts into the Autumn.  Pop this on in the background to all your culinary adventures and let us know what you think!


Some of this month’s tracks are from artists relatively new on the scene, such as London group JUCE!, who recently signed up with Island Records and performed on the BBC Introducing stage at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Glasgow back in May.  We love the sound of this record and we feel vocals are reminiscent of the likes of Alicia Keys or Kelly Rowland which is amazing. It is just so happy, cheerful and catchy and we look forward to hearing more from them.

A track that is at the other end of the spectrum is the latest by Mancunian Adio Marchant, aka Bipolar Sunshine.  This track has a great chilled out vibes; the perfect type of track for an evening enjoying the last days of the season.
