A cap on a tumultuous year, this playlist showcases some the highlights of 2018.
Artists like MGMT gravitated towards a synthy darkwave sound, while unprecedented collaborations — minimal techno producer DJ Koze teaming up with folk singer and guitarist Jose Gonzalez for example — as well as the return of the legendary rapper MF Doom made 2018 the year of genre-bending and brought a refreshing update to vintage styles.
Younger producers collaborated with seasoned artists, packing the year with incredible tunes. So enjoy this playlist while you say goodbye to 2018, which ranges from neo-soul to alternative rock to hip-hop to ambient dance music.
