Arone Dyer is one half of the band Buke and Gase. For her featured Road Warrior segment on Marketplace, Dyer told us that she spends a lot of time on the road both listening to and playing music. The song “Disco Balls” by Flying Lotus was her top pick because it helps her relax when she’s driving between gigs, she said.

Her eclectic musical tastes – as illustrated in her extended playlist below – also manifests by way of her instrument of choice – a handmade instrument that combines the base, guitar, ukulele, and a collection of percussion instruments.

  • Disco Balls – Flying Lotus ll
  • Make 1, 2 – Arthur Russell
  • Love is Love – Lungfish
  • Siriustar – Deerhoof
  • Runnin’ Away – Sly & the Family Stone
  • Sir Duke (Feel It All Over) – Stevie Wonder
