Music Mixbag: This Week's Playlist

1. The New Favourite: Katy B / Jessie Ware / Geenius - Aaliyah 

 Katy B is back and has teamed up with the amazing Jessie Ware for this new track Aaliyah. This 90's house throwback track has been recorded in tribute to late R&B artist Aaliyah as the title suggests. From what I've read their aim was to encapsulate everything about Aaliyah in a track and I reckon they've done a pretty fab job in paying homage to her and the track itself I absolutely love. It's free to download here as part of Katy B's new EP! 

2. The Re-discovered track: The Temper Trap - Sweet Disposition

This has to be one of my all time favourite songs - I just never seem to get bored of it. It's been a while since I listened to it till it popped up on my iTunes shuffle the other day and it's now accompanying me on my daily walk/bus/drive to work again! 

3. The Guilty Pleasure: Taylor Swift - I Knew You Were Trouble

 Don't judge me! Ha! This song is just too damn catchy for it's own good - I've had it in my head all day today and I can't help but admit I really like it. I really am a big old sucker for a cheesy pop-tastic song it seems! 

4. The Remix: Destiny's Child - Say My Name (Cyril Hahn Remix)

So Destiny's Child are working together again this year! Woop! I couldn't of been happier when I heard this news. Without a shadow of a doubt Destiny's Child were my all time favourite band aged 11+. I think I may even still have their concert poster and light up wand somewhere haha. Because of this news, it only seemed right they were included in this playlist post. Remixed by Cyril Hahn it completely flips the song on it's head and is sooo chilled out kinda Jamie XX-esque. Perfect. 

What do you all think of this week's selections? 



  1. Taylor Swift isn't even a guilty pleasure for me any more, I love her haha! That song is so catchy xx
