If you’re a fan of the Ibiza era of clubbing and tunes, this is a great watch. Maxi Jazz’s guest appearance in a suit jacket emblazoned with Heath Ledger’s Joker is also brilliant.
My cousins introduced me to Damien Dempsey‘s pre-Christmas gigs in 2015 and I was lucky enough to be at back to back nights this past Christmas. He’s an incredible performer and the video above gives a taste of how electric Dublin’s best venue was on the night. Unreal.
My 2015 in music
Spotify have released their Year in Music tool and it tells me I spent 14k minutes listening to 1655 different tracks (not counting December).
My top artist by plays is Childish Gambino. Followed by Frank Turner, Everything Everything, Jamie XX and Elbow.
Top played track was Shadows by Childish Gambino. Delorentos’ Forget the Numbers is in there at number 3. Great tune.
Since they sampled the data I would have passed 700 artists. Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlist has been the top feature of any online service I’ve used in 2015.
Looking forward to what the data on 2016 ends up looking like.
Ya gotta love Lynched.
I’m a big fan of Community, Dan Harmon’s ridiculous community college set show, which is about to debut for a sixth season. One of my favourite characters was Troy (who has since left the show), played by Donald Glover, and I was completely unaware until late last year that he’s a really talented rapper who goes by the stage name Childish Gambino. I’ve been listening to anything I can get my hands on but the 2013 album ‘because the internet’ is far and away some of the best music I’ve heard in years. The track ‘shadows’ is a particular stand out. If you’ve got Spotify, which frankly if you listen to music is a necessity, then you can browse his artist’s page here. Otherwise, watch the video below for Sober.
