We've selected 50 CDs - over 900 songs and pieces of music in 10 different categories - that you can hear track by track or create a play-list on your personal jukebox to make your journey even better.

Take a look at this month's highlights.


Thunder & Co.

Rodrigo Gomes and Sebastião Teixeira are no spring chickens on the music scene. The former made many a body sweat at the Soulbizness concerts, while the latter paid tribute to electronic music of the ‘80s with Post Hit. Together, these Lisbon musicians promise to conquer both stage and club. Just listen to “O.N.O.” on the Pop channel to be convinced.





Hold On, We’re Going Home

Rapper, songwriter and actor, Drake is the artistic name of young Canadian Aubrey Drake Graham. Winner of numerous awards with various number one singles, the singer won a Grammy for Best Rap Album with Take Care. Rather more introspective is “Hold On, We’re Going Home”, which can be heard aboard and one of the hits from the latest album – Nothing Was the Same.
