May compilation 2017 this [2017-06-11]

Not yet started on the summer-easy compilation, even if Calvin Harris here would be perfect. As per usual a focus on vocal performance. Moss Kena and AOE the strongest possible start, even better than Jhené (which is quite something). Same thing for Pete Josef. The youtube compilation is surprisingly complete, almost never happens. A lot of the videos also happen to be better than average. Jhené Aiko's often are like short stories, here as a version (?) of "50 first dates" (Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler).

April compilation 2017 this [2017-04-17]

Section boyz has a free mixtape, I like the UK hiphop style here. Tinie Tempah continues the south London contribution - less grime, more pop on this accessible album. Lou Phelps, the bass and the basic old school beats is quite addictive. Kaytranada's kid brother I understand. Syd's album, just as good as expected. I like the retro style by Dabeull, love the vocals! Booka shade is what Depeche Mode could/should sound like, if they hadn't gone to the dark side (rock with live drums and guitar).
