Playlist: JYT's fall playlist
"Fall has always been my favourite season.
For whatever reason, I'm infatuated with the darkening nights and the fresh, crisp night air slowly taking over. All of a sudden bourbon seems more appropriate than a mojito. I find myself picking up books left unread come summer, packing away my summer clothes and breaking out my trusted cardigans and jackets. What's more, my playlists change completely. Here's my five picks for this fall, perfect for reflecting on the past summer while swigging whiskey or rum on dark evenings."
1. WHAT SO NOT TOUCHED
"There's something about the cold yet hopeful feel of the melody. Having experienced synaesthesia since I was a kid, the rolling bass of the drop feels like the darkness taking over the summer."
2. MAYA JANE COLES SOMETHING IN THE AIR (Bonobo remix)
"This song is so powerful I'm afraid to play it live, because I'm not sure what would happen if this was dropped. If we're talking house music, for me this is pretty much as good as it gets. It sounds exactly like the cold autumn air feels. The progression of the track never seizes to amaze me, not to mention all the little goodies Bonobo sprinkled all around. It's like the ribs were already amazing but the dry rub really set it off. Tasty."
3. HALSEY NEW AMERICANA
"I've always been a big fan of Lana Del Rey, and when I discovered Halsey I felt like she took every single thing I loved about Lana and added production straight out of my playbook. Halsey's debut album BADLANDS is lightyears ahead of my recent releases, but definitely closer to what I've been working on lately. If you've heard me play live, including this song might be surprising. For those who know me, not so much."
4. DRAKE CREW LOVE (feat. The Weeknd)
"I'm not sure why, but Crew Love always finds its way to my playlists in September. Pure bliss, and definitely one of Drake's best in my opinion."
5. TRENTEMØLLER SHADES OF MARBLE
"Trentemøller is one of my all time favorite producers and musicians. His sense of melody and rhythm is second to none, and for the very same reason What So Not's Touched feels so personal to me, many of this guy's songs sound blue. Shades of Marble is one of his best tracks, but there's nothing that can beat his album The Last Resort. It's what I find myself listening to over and over again through fall and winter."
