Music Week Playlist: January 9, 2017

London Grammar
Rooting For You
Metal & Dust/ Ministry Of Sound

The Nottingham trip-hoppers’ return makes sense at the beginning of a new year – this is powerful, reflective and just the right amount of sad.
Contact Chloe Melick

The xx
Say Something Loving
Young Turks

The latest cut from upcoming record I See You, out January 13, sees the London trio move off the dancefloor and into a dark corner for a cuddle.
Contact Jon Wilkinson

Aphex Twin

A late, trippy and rather hushed Christmas present from Richard David James. Top marks for faraway humming and ahhing.
Contact Leah Ellis

Feel Me (feat. Kanye West)
Good Music

Yeezy’s third consecutive New Year drop comes in the shape of a slick, doped-out hook up with his protégé Tyga. For when you’re feeling smooth.
Contact Anthony Martini

Action Bronson
Dealer Plates

Included on Brooklyn producer Harry Fraud’s Rogues Vol.2 playlist, out now, this matches louche funk with Bronson’s beefy, profane bars.
Contact Ryan Cunningham

The Avalanches
Bad Day (feat. Freddie Gibbs)
XL Recordings

It may be a rough mix, but Bad Day finely exhibits the Aussie electro magpies’ knack for swing and soul.
Contact Leah Wilson

Ascension Hymn
Phantasy Sound

Out now on Erol Alkan’s Phantasy Sound, this is a lengthy (the full version is 13 minutes), hypnotic and banging slab of gritty techno.
