Remember those times when you picked up a music magazine or a weekly music paper and read a playlist of what that publication’s writers were playing in the office that week? Here is my nod to that staple. No great fanfare, just ten of the best song around right now I’ve been playing lots of.
This week: That Boy-8-Bit remix refuses to leave my ears alone, new cuts from albums you should buy from Sleeping States and Yacht. A great Jay-Z album track from the disappointing The Blueprint 3, some more recent remixes and a new short but sweet almost Massive Attack-esque track from Various.
