For The New York Review of Books, FT traces the career of George Michael:

"George Michael’s ability as a pop producer and songwriter—his proven skill at making songs 'jump out of the radio'—rested within a fertile but fairly predictable set of parameters: deep soul, light funk, heavy syncopation, a sprinkle of two-tone reggae. A lot of rhythm; just enough blues."

Thanks for listening!

—Dave & Team Hype Machine
