It has become my habit that at the end of each year to put together a “best of” playlist of the music that I have been listening to, or has meant something, that year. Again, I’m a bit late finishing the 2014 version for various reasons, but last week I finished reviewing the tracks and placing them in a carefully chosen order.
Like last year I’ve used the music streaming service Spotify to pull together the playlist. One of the great things about Spotify is it makes sharing the result much easier. So for those who might be interested here is the full playlist of over nine hours of my best tracks of 2014:
On the evidence of this playlist my tastes in 2014 have been firmly fixed somewhere in the territory between jazz, hip hop, and various forms of electronic music. With additions of old fashioned R&B and some singer-songwriter stuff. Again I’ve been heavily influenced by Gilles Peterson’s Sunday afternoon BBC 6 Music radio show.
I’m pretty happy with that, although I’m starting to feel I could do with more rock (or possibly ROCK! \m/) in my life.
