(I’m only scratching the surface really, since I have between 6k-7k songs on my iPod and 35k on a separate hard drive that I don’t even want to look at...)
But anyway, sourcing my library… I have several tags that are nation-specific. I didn’t tag stuff US, UK, or any other (primarily) English-speaking country (yet), but here are my favorite acts/albums by country:
ibiza – My ibiza tag is pretty voluminous, so I won’t go there. I did go to ibiza a few years back, and as seen on my dashboard, I love the chillout, cafe del mar-type music.
As far as world music goes, my favorite artist is Israel Kamakawiwo'ole. He passed the year I moved to Hawaii, and his life still is much celebrated over there.
I seem to listen to a lot of DJ-type music from germany:
house DJ – Timo Maas (I even gave him a tag: maas)
trance DJ – Paul van Dyk (tag: pvd)
Honorable mention, spanish guitar - Ottmar Liebert
and germany is also the birthplace of one of my favorite classical composers - Johann Sebastian Bach. …
