You know those songs - the ones that hit your eardrums hard and slap you hard in the feels at the same time.
Our team of nine is back with our weekly "I don't care what genre this song is, what matters is that it sounds good to me" playlist, and this time we're bringing in more of what we'd call a "local flavour", with a selection of tunes from big names such as Pamungkas, Pee Wee Gaskins, Ardhito Pramono, and Janitra Satriani, blended in a mixtape along with a variety of foreign artists (e.g. BTOB's Lee Changsub, Jeff Bernat, Okkultokrati, and Kali Uchis). Enjoy!
