It’s been a total surprise but these playlists are becoming incredibly popular considering the nature of the blog. I’m still undecided as to which platform is better for music discovery as now Bandcamp has entered the mix with a number of exclusive labels such as Dream Catalogue. This months playlist is again on the mellow side featuring artists such as Slow Magic and Yppah
The ever reliable Souncloud always produces a few surprises and recent releases by labels such as Anjunabeats and Sasha’s Last Night on Earth show that electronic music is far from over. This months Soundcloud playlist features tracks by the late Manu Shrine, downtempo demi-god Phaeleh and a Style Division favourite – Great Skies.
For anyone that knows me I listen to a lot of music. If you think that’s an exaggeration have a look at my LAST.FM profile, which is why this section is the hardest to decide by far. Ultimately I decided on a compilation album by Maribou State as it serves as a great introduction to the band and The Weeknd‘s new ‘Beauty Behind the Madness’ album is to break sales records.
I first heard about The Weeknd a couple of years ago through his single ‘Initiation‘ (produced by DROPXLIFE) and have been a fan ever since. If you like MJ with a dirty twist then this album is for you.
