This years playlist is mainly composed of songs from my 3 favourite albums of the year; Khalid's 'American Teen' (an amazing achievement for a 19 year old!), Thundercat's 'Drunk' and The xx's 'I See You'. I also enjoyed 'Electric Lines' the debut solo album from Joe Goddard (Hot Chip/ 2 Bears) and 'New Energy', a return to form from Four Tet.

My favourite music video is Ryan Staake's genius video for Young Thug's 'Wyclef Jean'. The shoot didn't quite go to plan, in fact Young Thug never even showed up. Instead what we get are cards that explain how things unraveled intercut with some of the footage Staake did get, based on the bizarre ideas that Thug had initially sent him; models riding kiddie cars, children dressed as cops smashing up police cars etc.
