gvsb_songs2016

Today we follow up our albums of 2016 list with the much more interesting list of our 101 favorite songs of the year. Featuring a couple of inventive flips of Shangaan Electro and Tropicália samples in the top 3, the powerful opening missive from A Tribe Called Quest's first album in nearly 20 years, an old Radiohead love song, multiple jams each from Frank Ocean, Danny Brown, and Carly Rae, undeniable breakthrough singles from Whitney, Mitski, Maggie Rogers, and The Homie, another strong showing from TX's own S U R V I V E boys (whose massive year culminated this morning in 2 Grammy noms in the same category), and many more incredible and essential tracks that helped us all make it through this pathetic excuse for a year.

Kaytranada’s Gal Costa-sampling “Lite Spots” got the best video of the year

KAYTRA LITE SPOTS

We regrettably never got around to posting this one when it dropped during last week's Radiohead + James Blake-induced daze, but this is without question one of the best tracks of the year and the leading contender for our personal "official summer jam 2016", taken from Montreal producer Kaytranada's very tight new album 99.9%.
