September compilation 2018 this [2018-09-02]

So much to like here. At least two tracks are going to the best of 2018 list, for sure. Syd and Sampha together on one track, cannot fail. That James Blake remix is insane, the best track so far this year. Sam Smith is perfect on the Calvin Harris track, pop that sounds a lot like the Dua Lipa collaboration (also very nice). Also, I had forgot just how much I like the sound of Larry Heard (Mr Fingers).
