Dazed October 2014 Playlist

In honour of the luminous talent of the late Mark Bell, we mash up the hottest tracks of the month bound to make you freak

The sheer size of this playlist is a pretty hefty indicator that things are getting crazy as we enter that final sprint of the year. Thugger, Rich Homie Quan and Birdman are, of course, totally conquering the month with Tha Tour Part 1, but elsewhere you’ve got Tinashe's breathy and breathtaking debut album, Perfume Genius’s showstopping third LP, 13-year-old old Willow Smith's indie angst, more PC Music madness and some unstoppable anthems from Wiley, Kendrick and R L Grime with How To Dress Well. New faces include London MC K9 (who worked with Dark0, Visionist and Mssingno on his excellent recent mixtape Mad in the Cut, hard-as-nails Detroit rapper Dej LoafUNO NYC's Feral and 2014 RBMA participants Sylas. Oh, and did we mention the new Flying LotusThom YorkeArca and Jam City? It’s a big one. 

It wouldn’t be right, however, to kick off without acknowledging that we lost a luminous talent this month in Mark Bell, Bjork collaborator and one half of Warp’s LFO. In honour of Bell and all he gave to the world of electronic music, this month’s playlist is going to begin with something to make you freak.
