Fresh Taste #61

Start listening

It’s that time of year where everyone is making their “Best of the year” lists, mixes and whatnots. I have done that in the past, but for some reason, it always felt weird to me to rank art. I realize that I change my mind every 5 minutes and I can’t really come up with a definitive selection.

So instead of doing a “best of” to close the year, I give you a last regular edition. The first part is full of beats and hip hop with a touch of R&B, while the second part is more uptempo oriented, playing new techno, broken beat, and house music. You can revisit the previous edition if you want to know which projects and songs my collaborators and I really loved in 2018. Does every 2-minute beat we played deserving of an “all-time classic” mention?… probably not. But I can guaranty that every song included on those shows moved us in some way, and I hope you feel the same.

We will try to continue sharing our favorite discoveries every month, in the hopes that you will consider buying music, tickets to see shows or anything else to help those artists you fell in love with. If you want to help us, the curators, and give us a little bit of $$$, you can follow the channel on Mixcloud Select. A part of the profit will be distributed to the artists as well.

Happy new year and see you in 2019! 🙂
