2016 in review: bonus beats

December 15, 2016

Dearly beloved! Now that everyone is familiar with my 2016-year-mix, it is time for some contextual bonus. I am not in the mood for lengthy analysis or overworked descriptions of obscure titles… But there are a lot of 2016 releases that deserve (further) listening.
