Here it is. My “2015 Personal Favorites and Slept On’s” episode. 3 Hours was just NOT enough. When I looked back in the record bin and Serato crates I realized there was a ton of other gems I never got around to. These are my favorites that pushed the bar in some way, shape or form. From Ty Dolla to 79rs Gang, Tame Impala to J Cole, we explore the many directions and sounds from across the musical spectrum known as 2015.

[Note – A few of these are from 2014 or recent record finds in record bins.]
