Weekly Playlist 7: Lightworks

Ringing in the first full working week of the new year with a lot of hip hop, including J Dilla, A$AP Rocky, and The Pharcyde. It’s not all hip hop though, because we’ve got some amazing British jazz from Kamaal Williams, some electronica from Ciel and we polish it all off with a beautiful delicate track from Nils Frahm, which even months after its release I still can’t get enough of.

Enjoy!

Weekly Playlist 5: Solstice

I have to credit a good chunk of songs on this list to the recommendations of my friend Matt who I had a drink with a week ago, and has had a lot of influence on this selection as a result.

This week Grimes and Peter Broderick return with rather different tracks, one a metal-infused pop odyssey, one a piano led floating piece about balloons. There’s a lot of the 1970s this week including a 1978 funk track from the drummer of the shadows, a school-age band from Nigeria create a wonderful R&B song and a 1973 track will almost certainly sound rather familiar.

Enjoy!
