This week we’re featuring tons of English classics from Mr. Money Man himself: Gaz! “Hi I’m Gaz, Spirit Studios Mr. Money Man. I grew up in the 90’s around the Manchester Indie scene, where a lot of my music taste comes from. As Mr. Money Man at Spirit Studios you have to buy at least one pair of trainers per week.

Did you know that we have a weekly playlist? 
It’s true! Our #WeekendWaves drops every Friday, and is curated by a different member of our lovely staff each week. “Hey hey I’m Lizi, originally from Manchester and not leaving anytime soon! I proper hope you enjoy my playlist, I can’t say my music type goes down well in the office so headphones sometimes have to do. A lot of this playlist consists of Manchester artists, but a couple others are thrown in there too. Manchester music is literally popping off right now, and to be honest I spend most of my breathing hours refreshing GRM Daily. Anyway I hope you enjoy x”

If you want to check out Lizi’s #WeekendWaves, or anyone else’s, check our ‘Spotify’ stories highlight! 
And make sure to tune in every Friday around 4 for that week’s playlist release. See you then🕺🏼
