I was playing around with Spotify’s Year In Music tool to see all the tracks I’ve been listening to in 2015 and I decided to put together a compilation playlist of the best songs I’ve been listening to this year.

Music is a huge part of my life and I usually do my best work when I’m absorbed in a mix and just writing or designing in flow-like stream of consciousness state. I find that the best music for inducing this flow state are instrumentals songs and fresh new tracks that I’m familiar with but I haven’t overplayed yet.

In this Spotify playlist below, I put together all the fresh new tracks I was regularly listening to in 2015. On this playlist, you’ll find a mix of all kinds of rock’n’roll, electronic, soul, ambient and pop gems from this past year.
