Music is a journey, and so is this playlist. Our first stop is the sweet sounds of Bonobo, who titillates the musical palate with a symphony of instruments. A Tribe Called Quest hints at a change of direction, providing both lyricism and syntax hitherto unseen. Then we diverge with Maribou State who โ€˜ticsโ€™ our box with some liquidity. Our final stop is signalled by MGMT who introduces us to a segment of all-round bangers. I hope you enjoy the journey.
