1. Bwana – Choice & Consequence
More deliciousness from Bwana to top off his stellar 2016. So ready to hear what he’s got in store for 2017, it gunna be good.
2. Cromie – She Knew
Cromie has been quietly making top notch productions for years now, and he’s really starting to make a name for himself in LA. This song is right on the mark — classic and fresh.
3. Inxec & Droog – Day For Night
Absolutely in love with this EP off of Sasha’s label Last Night On Earth. I could listen to this track for hours.
4. The Violet Hour – Ultraviolet
The Violet Hour is Fort Romeau and Massimiliano Pagliara teamed up to delight our ears with club-ready tunes: melodic and groovy, with a hint of acid.
5. Duke Slammer – Planet Yes
Both futuristic and retro, this track is right on trend. A low-key slow burner, lighthearted and funky.
6. Ben Rau – Ride Eternal
This track is so straightforward yet there’s something about it that just draws me in. Expertly crafted and assembled, with a very unique flow, this would be a treat to hear on the dancefloor.
7. D Tiffany – Far Out
D Tiffany, aka DJ Zozi, repping Vancouver with this uber chill house track. I’m very into the chill Canadian house thing, and Vancouver in particular seems to be spitting out a lot of fantastic producers these days. Watch this space.
8. Jesse Futerman – Gem
2017 will be the year of lo-fi, and Church records will lead the wave. Love that little horn sample, adds so much character to this very simple track.
9. Viken Arman – Feels The Winter
Another stellar release on Lee Burridge and Matthew Dekay’s All Day I Dream label. Just the ultimate chill-out track, let those warm synths wash away your sorrows.
10. SMH – Beat Collective #07
Beat Collective is an experiment where producers are sent the same two samples and asked to make a track. This popped up in my feed and it makes me SO HAPPY. Perfect song to end a playlist on.
