Playing tracks by
E-40, Kool A.D., Prince, Guru, Big Nuz and more.
This upload was 86th in the #downtempo chart.
Each year Said the Gramaphone (which I consider Canada's top literary music blog) gives followers a year-end wrap-up of the 100 tunes that made the biggest impression on their three bloggers. This year, the suggestion was made that I not just listen to their top 100, but that I also pull out the tunes that caught my attention and make a set from them. Done and done.
First, let me just note this: NSFW!
Now, with that out of the way, I'll just advise you that the choices run from hiphop through sweet love tracks and out through glitchcore at the other end; you'll hear FKA twigs, Aphex Twin, Alt-J, Prince, E-40, Homeboy Sandman, Guru, Jessie Ware, Wild Beasts and Wye Oak, among others.
Thx to ThirdPower1 for both the inspiration to create the set, and for the accompanying cover art. You can get the entire 100-track roundup from StG here: http://www.saidthegramophone.com/archives/best_songs_of_2014.php
