90s/00s Spotlist

Early 90s loved up, happy dance music is a well-trodden path of nostalgia but for good reason – this Spotlist pretty much compiled itself, such is the wealth of day-glo, jump-up 90s/00s tunes that tug on musical memories. There may be a few that you’d forgotten here. There’s everything from dark dance to undeniable mid-noughties RnB; drum and bass to dream-pop classics; the garage-pop majesty of SFA (Sweet Female Attitude) to Southern hip hop. Fancy a trip down memory lane?

This Week’s Spotlist

The second Spotlist is a rangy and in-your-face affair. We have the Chemical Brother’s signature metallic dance on new track Sometimes I Feel So Deserted. There is dark trance from fellow EDM Grandads Leftfield on Bilocation. We have the mournful oriental sound of Major Lazer; jazz I could actually get on board with from Ninja Tune’s Jaga Jazzist; delicate guitar from Toro Y Moi; the freak-out of Holly Herndon; the jumping sound of Sylvan Esso; beauty from teenager Billie Marten; laconic reverb from Willie J Healey; plus tracks from Paul Weller’s and Hot Chip’s new albums; and a bit of Ravel. Enjoy!
