TOP 10! January


TOP 10! January

We’re starting 2021 at the edges, speaking both geographically and musically. Our selection of the Top 10 acts in January skirts the edges of Europe, from the Mediterranean in the south to the coast of Norway in the north, from the eastern reaches of Belarus and Ukraine to the Atlantic lapping against the Portuguese shore in the west. The acts themselves are no less adventurous, straddling the borders between kuduro and trap, psych and pop, old and new, warm fuzz and chill vibes, so grab your passport and start exploring!
