Our playlist opens with Charli XCX’s brand new single “After the Afterparty”, recorded with Atlanta rapper-of-the-moment Lil Yachty – a natural pairing, given both artists’ appreciation for bubblegum sounds. From there it goes into all sorts of unexpected territories: there’s leftfield rap from Run the Jewels, twinkling dancehall from Konshens, dubby pop from Peluché, and experimental techno from Via App (pictured in the graphic above).

Listen to the playlist below.
