Most artists, setting out to create a retrospective, would choose a track or two from each past album and assemble them into a compilation. Not PcUniverse, who’s approach is always imaginative, creative and adventurous. 17th, as the title implies, is his 17th album. He commemorates this milestone with all new tracks, but created in the […]
