Music is something of a hobby. From playing it, to cataloguing it (oh how the days of MP3's fed the OCD soul) to collecting it.
Apple Music and Spotify have made this a bit harder, with the sheer overwhelming amount of choice. But with great power, comes great playlists. I hope.
Every year, I put together a "DJ" mix of songs - wanted to share them here. There is only one rule: the music has to be released or discovered by me in that year. That leaves it open to new music and a couple of old favourites that slip under everyone's radar.
In addition, the playlist is designed in "DJ order". It's meant to be an experience. So start at the beginning - and play through in order. If you're playing on the Apple Music Mac App, set the crossfade to 12 seconds.
The 2019 mix goes on quite a journey.
- Deep House
- Indie Rock
- Vocal Trance
- A bit of festival EDM
- 70s Rock
- ... and ending off with a few oddball bits of awesome.
