SOTY 2017 PLAYLIST CHITCHAT/CIVIL DISCOURSE THREAD

We always doin that AOTY list game but lets rock out some of our favourite songs from this year OR that you discovered in your musical adventures this year itt. Heres what I've got:
1Ambassadeurs
3AM (feat. Bo Rocha)

What would Kate Bush sound like if she were a millennial?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGN4tt36R7E
2Breathe (feat. Folly Rae)

more lovely stuff
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_nl7BDXKLk
3These Four Walls

:]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Grjk8trOqHA
4Aparde
Mouth (feat. Anne)

beautiful
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSf0m809iLc
5Attica Blues
What Do You Want?

An overlooked Trip-Hop gem of top quality
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BKA8HZ4sLI
6Axel Thesleff
Bad Karma

If this doesnt make you want to fucking rip your clothes off and dance like an absolute madman you have no soul
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knfrxj0T5NY
7Baba Stiltz
Can't Help It

another straight stomper
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjeSHepuvXQ
8Bakradze
Water Cannon

reminiscent of four tet at his finest doing minimal house
https://soundcloud.com/gacha/bakradze-water-cannon-transfigured-time
9Bearcubs
Underwaterfall

if you wondered what James Blake would sound like now if he went the direction of his bangin' eps instead of his LPs, this is it, and it is glorious
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h27zbiA94WU
10SL001

make no mistake though, outside of that song he isn't a James Blake sound-alike at all
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7Axe4boGCM
11Black Light Smoke
Firefly (feat. Leah Lazonick)

found this through Ana Lily Anapour's film the Bad Batch. post-apocalyptic, mad-max dance music ripped from the 80s into the present. brilliant.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n8pyhLfO5JI
12Blue Mar Ten
Forest Fire (feat. Kite)

i've grown to find a spot in my heart for SOME drum and bass finally as this list will make apparent. this is beaut.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOWvNve3oAU
13BOP
Lucid Dreaming (feat. Elsa Esmeralda)

classic sounding stuff. where drum and bass meets IDM... a beautiful introspective place explored by BOP often. If you liked when Amon Tobin and Aphex dabbled in it, you'll like this.
14Branko
Paris - Marselha (feat. Cachupa Psicadelica)

exotic in the sense that Nicolas Jaar is exotic. its foreign, its dancey, its intelligent, and its tantalizing.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKF2pPtxLSw
15Burial
Rodent

this very quickly has become my favorite Burial song
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXbImCKDoug
16Catching Flies
Mama's Wisdom

if the latest Bonobo album bored you to tears, as it did to many, this might soothe that particular burn
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCwj8f5F8F0
17Charles Murdoch
Light Words VAO (feat. Steffaloo)

:3 lovely
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rcFxOarFK4
18Christopher Schwarzwalder, Iannis Ritter, David Dorad
High

this entire EP is absolutely alien. a dude with a guitar subverted within the underbelly of an introverted dance producer. its absolutely spectral... and it will HAUNT your head boyyyy
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5YbFWh8PU8
19Clara Moto
For All Reasons So Sad

melancholy bliss from mama Clara
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBXnbYf6caw
20Darkside
Metatron

head this before but had a renewed appreciation for it when it came up in the Bad Batch. This song is an acid trip.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8OUgd_pdes
21Dawn Wall
Ember

more evidence that drum and bass can be absolutely glorious and sentimental
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kM_ZXFhkLdE
22Dimlite
Exact Fingerpointing

instrumental hip hop that stands out from the masses is difficult. here is some
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWycGu2Q1n4
23Dwyer
Watchu

here is more
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m05Vqly-2zg
24Fort Romeau
Jack Rollin'

this guy knows how to lock you in a house groove with absolutely no escape
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bV9U-wZUuxY
25Francis Harris
Lostfound

another find from the Bad Batch. microhouse mixed with trip-hop vocals.... this and the next track are two of the most beautiful songs i've ever heard in my entire life.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2L4vi920jk
26You Can Always Leave

featuring the same vocalist as the last song and just as beautiful and penetrating. warning: these two songs WILL get you laid
27Funkdoobiest
Rock On

golden age hip hop classic
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVrC_sp6QOE
28GLXY
Tate & Lyle - VIP

like just fucking get in bed and smonk up and enjoy
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNWs5qmtbds
29Hiatus Kaiyote, Taylor Mcferrin, Andersson .Paak
Laputa (Taylor Mcferrin Remix)

I mean, yeah if you could make Hiatus Kaiyote even better this is certainly one way to do it holy fuck
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2LyOWhWXbk
30Invadhertz
Lily

more blissful d&b
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAHw2T64i4E
31Ishome
Sad Family

If you wondered what Burial would sound like if he cranked everything up to 12, it sounds like being psychologically torn apart by a cold snowy ghost city populated only in the tunnels and sewers below by anarchistic underground ravers
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFXhctsdAbA
32Jesper Ryom
Pacer

if u want to feel happy here is ur happy
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpPzQFgprn8

this might be the closest some of you get to passionate consentual sex for a while
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gG7clyggUUg
38Manatee Commune
What We've Got

one of the best pop songs ive heard this year
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wW4wR50Opc
39Material, Nature Boy Jim Kelly
My Style Is I Ain't Got No Style

this is hip hop of some kind with a live band and its very weird and it is also fucking amazing and heady as fuck. smonk
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69T4E7Nn6vQ

this album is like if a/t/o/s and flylo/thundercat went full gangster

more exceptionally engaging instrumental hip hop
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AT3l5uXHbRk

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bB-daN6P5hE
47Romare
Down the Line (It Takes a Number)

speaking of Bonobo, i found this thanks to his Late Night Tales mix and it is one of Romare's biggest bangers
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzYbJQm9laM
48Scar, Orkyd
Never Coming Back

drum and bass if the drums and bass were relegated to backing ambience and accentuation. possibly the biggest cock-tease i've heard all year but still so so beautiful
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aj816xqw4Lg
49Segilola
Substance Called Love

i couldnt find a link for this song but find it on spotify ASAP. r&b/nu-jazz/trip hop perfection.
