Listen: October 2021 Playlist

With the arrival of crisp autumn days comes the opportunity for new plans and a sense of spontaneity, as well as a yearning for those long-awaited cosy nights. With this mixture of moods, we need a varied playlist to ease us through the month. Our October playlist strikes a chord with every musical disposition this year, offering both sounds full of soul and more dynamic funk beats. Think smooth songs from the likes of Janet Jackson and The Roots, as well as selections with a hint of attitude from Little Simz and A Tribe Called Quest.
