fyfe: music to... pretend your life's a film to

Admit it. Sometimes you pretend that the music you're listening to is the soundtrack to your very own movie.

Walking to meet your friends for brunch? The Velvet Underground's Sunday Morning will ensure you arrive in the dreamiest of moods. Getting the night bus home? Beethoven's 9th will bring a whole new sinister mood to the journey. Need psyching up before a job interview? Lose Yourself with Eminem. Everybody does it, we promise. Clearly a fan of the pastime himself, Paul Dixon aka Fyfe has created a whole mix based around the activity. With Control, his electronic dream of a debut album out now on Believe Recordings, the 25 year old is currently half way through an impressive UK tour with his live band. Hit play and let Fyfe take your day to cinematic levels. Action!
