We’ve been climbing up that cold January hill all month-long and we’re finally in the clear of all those gloomy vibes thanks to some fiery new bangers. Kanye has been on a roll this month, Rihanna surprised everyone with new music, 90’s rave scene mainstay Underworld made a triumphantly weird return and our favourite smart guy psych rockers Yeasayer finally shared a first taste of their new work.

We furthered our love for Grime this month and were blessed along the way with the promise of forthcoming albums from the likes of KANO, Flume, Isaiah Rashad, Elf Kid, and Aluna George.

We’ve mixed up all our favourite tracks as usual for you. Welcome to 2016.
