Your Ticket to… 2018 (in 50 songs)

2018 in music

We know that the curtain closed on 2018 more than a week ago but, given the incredible number of good tunes released throughout the year, we also thought that it was better to take a few additional days to tidy up our music-listening.

What follows is a playlist of the tunes our speakers and ear/headphones have played in the past 365 days. You will find dancy tropical bass bangers as much as cinematic instrumental melodies; you will find a culturally rich and diverse year.

Watch the full playlist:
