Dazed August 2014 Playlist

SOPHIE spills a soda, 18+'s porno-pop and Bey and Nicki spit billion dollar bars in our favourites of the month

It’s summer, and that means you’ve only got the energy and the inclination for #bangerz. The latest Dazed playlist wastes no time jumping with two feet into the crashes and wollops of South Londoner GEoRGiA’s odd pop, Moleskin’s elastic dancefloor perfection, Beyoncé and Nicki’s billion dollar remix, SOPHIE’s sonic star jumps and that star-studded “Old English” tune featuring Thugger, Freddie Gibbs and A$AP Ferg that I cannot get out of my head. Vessel, Redinho and Slackk have got me on the edge of my seat for some of the most exciting LP releases of 2014, while Palmistry, Lil Silva, 18+ and Ryn Weaver have simply nailed the art of a zeitgeist-arresting pop tune. Dive in below, and remember: of course sometimes shit goes down when there’s a billion dollars on the elevator.
