The New Music Mixtape: Best of Q1 2017

We’ve made it to the end of Q1 and boy oh boy what an interesting start to the year we’ve had. A young lad from Suffolk released an album which saw all sixteen songs chart in the Top 20 on opening week. We saw Grime celebrate a milestone by crowning its new King, Stormzy, with a Number 1 album. And we enjoyed exuberant returns from Katy Perry, Lorde and…Uhm, Steps.
Its proof that music is more unpredictable than it has ever been before. The one thing that is concurrent is that it’s always bloody great. As always I have been listening non-stop around the clock for the most exciting pieces of music released. With over five hundred records already under my skin, I’m going to try and rank the Top 50 so far.
