So it’s the end of another year in music and, in my opinion, it’s been a goodun’.
A year that featured Peej’s astounding second Mercury prize win, Beyonce winning over a cynical Glastonbury crowd with sparkly pants and a whole lotta weave during her headline set and Warpaint’s dreamy debut album is a year that should be celebrated and celebrated it will be.
And, yes I know there are slightly bigger music websites like Pitchfork and The Quietus that may be putting together an end of the year review but I believe nothing will top my review because I, dear readers, have Azealia Banks, Sneakpeek and Katy B. Nothing beats that hand.
NB. This mixtape is best enjoyed whilst getting ready for a New Year’s Eve party complete with cheap wine and badly applied eye liner.
