“I’m much too forgetful/obsessed with the moment to be able to pretend this is any kind of definitive best of the year list, but this is what’s still swilling around in my brain at the tail end of it so that must say something! 

“Nice and eclectic, as it should be, I hope there’s some discoveries in there for you.”

Tracks from Dean Blunt, Nap Eyes, Homeboy Sandman & Edan and more, have a listen here.
