Dazed February 2015 Playlist

Rihanna teams up with ‘some guy called Paul’, Aphex Twin drops a catalogue of new tunes and Björk shares her heartbreak in this month’s playlist

The year so far has brought blessings on blessings on blessings. The early release of Björk’s heartbreak epic Vulnicura; the unexpected influx of more Aphex Twin tunes than we could possibly know what to do with; the release of one the year’s finest records (yep, already) from singer-songwriter Dawn Richard and finally – finally – some new Rihanna (along with some guy named Paul). Elsewhere, Berlin’s rowdy genre-obliterating crew Janus are taking over, with Lotic announcing his debut EP on Tri Angle and KABLAM taking steps into the spotlight with “CLOSE(D)”; and on a calmer note, London producer Prayer, ambient experimentalist Claude Speeed and Software’s latest signing GABI are all busy building worlds for getting lost inside. Whether you’re feeling buried in quicksand or you’re “four five seconds from wildin’,” there’s something for you in this month’s playlist.
