February 2016 Playlist
At the time of writing, Young Thug and Future are being rude to each other on Twitter, which is a shame – they’re arguably the most distinctive voices in hip-hop right now, and it would be much cooler if they were mates. They’re both included here in the form of Thugger’s Boosie tribute F Cancer and Future’s track Inside The Mattress – the highlight of his recent Purple Reign mixtape.
Outside of Atlanta rap, this month’s playlist also includes Freddie Gibbs’ spin on No More Parties in LA, Ricardo Villalobos and Max Loderbauer’s Kerrier District remix, the immensely talented Awful Records singer Alexandria, a bunch of excellent new grime tracks as well as comeback songs from PJ Harvey, Boston art-rockers Guerilla Toss, leeds punk band Eagulls and the handsome Copehagen trio Lust For Youth. Enjoy.
