While making the yearly playlists have been a joy, the simple fact is, it’s getting harder and harder to get them up on any music platform. The copyright gatekeepers and their algorisms are getting far too advanced. I remember two years ago, not one song was booted from my end of year playlist. Last year: had ten songs booted. This year — well after uploading the first batch of songs, my email lite up like Chinese New Year. So unfortunately, there will be no bloated 200-song playlist this year on Soundcloud. However, I have selected around twenty of my favorite tracks and made a mixtape on my Mixcloud account.
I’ll also include the full list of my favorite songs of the year below. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to inquire about certain bands or songs (or if you wanna bribe me to hand over the whole package of songs)
