February compilation 2019 this [2019-03-10]

Quite fond of the Maverick Sabre/Chronixx single and video. Iman Omari is a nice new discovery (whatever style this is, neosoul?) very refreshing somehow, Nicoli Musoni a cool cat, both the song and video by Armin van Buuren is like a flashback the previous wave of club/pop music from the Netherlands.

January compilation 2019 this [2019-02-03]

Plenty of songs stacked up after the holidays, but a bit all over the place. James Blake's new album, a must, pretty much the best thing out there. Babe Sila is on heavy rotation, charming. slowthai and the UK rap scene is soo different from the US rap, refreshing and something new. Athletic Progression - nice to find som new modern take on jazz. Really looking forward to Apparat and the new album (in March, thay say), a live show is high om my wishlist. Same for Jhené - sadly I missed her latest gig in Stockholm. Kaidi - my favourite style, broken beat, I don't find a lot of new music in this genre. Like the cover of About You, the XXYYXX video is a personal all-time favourite.

Top 20 songs in 2018 this [2018-12-30]

My top 20 for 2018.

  1. Moses Sumney Make out in my car (James Blake version) -
    It's all about the remix, dark, intense and slightly weird.
  2. Cleo Sol Miles song
    I love this kind of big production,voice and choir, reminds me of the 4hero/Jill Scott sound.
  3. Ella Mai Trip
    The live video is fantastic, talent like that cannot be faked!
  4. Amber Mark Love me right
    Solid album and with a Sade cover, sounds a lot more r&b though.
  5. India Shawn w/Alex Isley & Re Lxuise Water me
    The slow whispering singing style reminds me of Aaliyah
  6. Everything is recorded w/Syd & Sampha Show love
    This is what you get when you add two of the biggest names to your project.
  7. H.E.R. Going (interlude)
    The live set is fantastic, especially the intro. Last year's no 1.
  8. Lido Outstanding
    A good year with plenty of strong hits. Music from Norway. Like the video, it makes a difference when you use "real" actors.
  9. Jorja Smith The one
    The voice.
  10. U.S. girls Rosebud
    Like the avant-pop, and the video is fun.
  11. Calvin Harris w/Dua Lipa One kiss
    The hit of the summer
  12. Ame Queen of toys
    I should list more Berlin techno
  13. Travis Scott Sicko mode
    Extra large, extra everything, a rollercoaster of twists and turns.
  14. Tinashe Throw a fit
    I said it before, my transition to a life with less trap has been delayed.
  15. The Weeknd Call out my name
    ditto
  16. Drake Nice for what
    The hip-hop machinery on max
  17. Yangze Sometimes
    Electro-pop from Denmark.
  18. The presets Feel alone
    Sometimes all you need is a steady beat, over and over again
  19. Caitlyn Scarlett Ornaments
    "I'm on your shuffle playlist / I'm in the club / I'm in the headphones of the stranger on the bus / I come on in your taxi and the driver turns it up"
  20. Sade The big unknown
    Overwhelming sadness
