#Bestof 2016 Top 100 Tracks (50-26)


The third block of our best tracks of the year begins with New York artist of Hispanic descent Xenia Rubinos. She puts together a colourful melting pot of Latin and rock influences in ‘Mexican Chief,’ a powerful defence of the role racial diversity plays in American society.

Also in this block we’ll find Mods; Tropical Lo-Fi; the new project by Belfast’s most popular DJ and soundtrack composer; a solo musician out of the Woods; R&B divas; melodic hardcore; Compton greatest appearing as a guest in two of the tracks; Canadian electronica and the return of several soul and hip-hop legends.
