The Sound Of Me

Jakob Ampe

Music — this thing that is as much part of our life as it shapes it. Whether we’re going through the perks of early mornings or in search of the perfect catalyst to get a party started, we all have a mental playlist for specific memories and moments. This month we asked musician and Wild Life FM co-creator Jakob Ampe take some time to reflect on moments in life and the music that completed them.

A song for waking up

This song makes me hungry and happy: two good things in the morning. I love the “o-o-oohs” he sings in the chorus.

 

A song for making out

Nice rhythm. Smooth singing. Fresh sounds.

 

A song for working out

Every time I imagine working out, I listen to this song and imagine running a little bit faster.

 

A song for nostalgic moments

I’m from Ghent but to me there is no language as beautiful and nostalgic as Wannes van de Velde’s “Aantwaarps”.

 

A song for relaxing

For a relaxing night walk. I got this through the Germans’ guitar player. He knows his classics.

 

A song for on the road

Not appreciated in every company but a big hit on tour with my brother, the dancer.

Wild Life FM is live radio show on how to discover yourself through music. Nine musicians join Jakob Ampe, Kim Noble, and Pol Heyvaert to create a raw representation of what it’s like to be young nowadays.
