Picks and Pans Review: My 2012 Playlist

Posted on

>SPOTIFY FOUNDER DANIEL EK

1. Rihanna

“Diamonds” remix Kanye [West] raps on it. He was in Stockholm and played it for me. It’s some crazy stuff!

2. Kendrick Lamar

“Swimming Pools (Drank)” It’s kind of dark and it feels like early Dr. Dre. He’s really awesome.

3. Arctic Monkeys

“R U Mine?” This is what great rock is: amazing guitar riffs, cool drums, with a kind of dirty undertone.

4. Mumford & Sons

“Ghosts That We Knew” It’s really deep, makes you think about life.

5. Kimbra

“Settle Down” (live) She sang this in the Spotify House at South by Southwest. I get chills!
