Top tracks of 2016 #10 – DJ Shadow feat. Run The Jewels, DIIV & Daughter

We are into the top ten.  I can hear the TOTP countdown music in my head as I type.

I first heard this track over the closing credits of an episode of the fabulous Silicon Valley and was intrigued, so went to a handy website that lists music used in TV shows.

This is a collaboration from this year’s DJ Shadow album with Run The Jewels on vocals. It reminds me of the debut Fun Lovin Criminals album, which is no bad thing and it’s another track that seems very 2016, amplified by the video which is an interesting fusion of Dr Stangelove and Frankie’s Two Tribes. Lyrically very dark and definitely NSFW, but it seems to chime perfectly with the very strange times in which we now seem to be trapped..

Excellent choices from Roy and Andy below, whilst the list so far is here.
