The Best Of 2017

We’re well into the second half of 2018 so… about time I post the best of 2017! Had much less time to blog or anything to do on a computer, this is why I created this blog on WordPress which is much easier on a smartphone. On Spotify, I had a pretty long list of albums I wanted to hear before doing this playlist. Hadn’t the time to hear them all before Christmas, I actually finished the last of the essentials now…
Well, another pretty eclectic year. Apart from the usual indie suspects (New Order, Emidio Clementi from Massimo Volume, Robert Corless from Gabrielles Wish, Slowdive, Ride, Coldplay, Spartiti, Angela Baraldi), I heard a lot of funk (The Soultrend Orchestra, Antonio Farao), nu jazz artists from the small but vital London scene (Nubiyan Twist, Alfa Mist, Joe Armon-Jones), an emerging songwriting talent like Jordan Rakei, the amazingly successful Italian trap and rap scene (Izi, Fabri Fibra), Sabrina Malheiros (daughter of the Azymuth bassist) doing sophisticated Brazilian pop, an Afrobeat star like Fally Ipupa, the perfect dance pop of Calvin Harris and DJ Khaled… not adding links to the post because you can find all these artists simply by searching them on Facebook.
