Many moons ago, I got sent this tweet:  

This was following my exploration of what were the best music releases of 2018

I shared some recommendations in a tweet, which granted is not the best way to share music. I would have just quickly put them in a Spotify playlist and shared that as a whole thing, but since Martyn uses Apple Music I would have to have had exported between the two services, and before I did that, I wanted to make sure it was *just* right.

And now it is.

There is so much freedom in not having to be constrained by music that's released within a certain time. This playlist contains a lot of new music, but there are some old favourites that definitely add a more timeless feel to this playlist, like Lola and Sunny Afternoon by the Kinks.

I mixed critically acclaimed currents and even major hits (Kacey Musgraves, James Bay and Ariana Grande) but I'm also proud to include some new artists who are yet to break (Zilla With Her Eyes Shut and Russo) as well as recent break-outs Alice Merton and Maggie Rogers, as well as solid household names like Liam Gallagher and Imagine Dragons.

I hope you like it.
