Sounds of 2016

Wasn’t sure I was going to do this, for 2016, but ended up compiling this list for a friend earlier this month. Below are links to some of the things I’ve been listening to in last 6-12 months. Some of this has been posted previously here, by me. Not a ton of “new” hiphop but some…

Of particular note Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip in The Abstract and The Dragon and The Return of The Abstract and the Dragon

Konnichiwa the hottest grime album of last 12 months, via Skepta

Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, giving a great NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

The chopped and screwed remix of Solange by DJ Auditory

Acapella Gucci Mane also with a NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

Oddisse

These Dominican rappers Whitest Taino Alive

A rinseFM tribute show to Prince

Gilberto Gil – MTV Unplugged 1994. Loved so much I bought on CD (for
like 1$) via Discogs

Some sick contemporary LA jazz (has done some work with Kendrick
Lamar). I have this on vinyl.

Finally, also been listening to some comedy at work occasionally.

Norm McDonald has a podcast/show and You Made it Weird. Including a great one with Gary Shandling, RIP.
