Rounding off our favourite 100 tracks of this year, our final instalment covers jazz, folk, indie and world music hopping from West Africa to Paris and beyond. 2015 was a beautiful year for local sounds from “out there”, alongside Mercury-nominated trippy 60’s inspired folk and Icelandic experimental pop. Relive it all below and hopefully you’ll discover some new things that may have passed you by along the way.
To help you digest it all in one go, we’ve collected them all into one Mixcloud mix, going for a sonic progression rather than an arbitrary order of preference. Grab the full tracklist inside the player and also listen to as many we could find on a Soundcloud playlist too.
