Looking back at 2015...

This post may seem like maximum narcissism, but I spent a few minutes yesterday looking back at some of the writing I did last year. Here are the pieces I enjoyed writing the most.

A special thank you to anyone who had positive words or helped me along this year. Here's to an even better 2016.

Sunday Coffee Best of 2015

For those in a coma or just looking to relive an incredible year in music, I put together the year's best tracks in this Sunday Coffee Best of 2015 radio show. There were so many possible entries this year, with what seems like a new impactful album coming out every week. With life moving fast, I didn't get to spend as much time with some of these tracks as I'd like to, but doing this show afforded me the chance to rewind the year and focus on the bands and songs I might've forgot. I hope the same happens for you.

So, yeah. There's a couple hours of radio show here as I guide you through my favourites, followed by a 45-minute mix of 2015's best in dance. There's plenty to get you through the next few Sunday coffees. Enjoy and see you in 2016.

If you're looking to take this mix on the road, the Mixcloud app can be downloaded for iOS here.
