As part of our Artist Playlist series, Kiko Bun gets all romantic. His brand new single, 'Sometimes', is out on October 9th via Island Records.

"This is my Top 20 Favourite Rocksteady Love Songs playlist. I love the analogue and tape feel across these recordings. They've got a dusty but full texture to them, which really comes through when you play them on vinyl. I love Ernest Wilson's 'Undying Love'. The chord progression goes around and around until the end, but gets more and more addictive as it rolls on, with the sweet vocal that flows on top."
