Said James Lavelle on his involvment in the project: “I was asked to compile playlists for the project. I’ve been given four categories – work, romance, exercise and party. I wanted something that was eclectic, hopefully there were elements of discovery, things that were going to be classic and appeal to a wide spectrum people but obviously still coming from my perspective.” [From his Digital Spy Interview.]
