I suspect I am doomed to forever meander in the top 5, but never win.

Great job, Ash. I know you had no faith in this list, really, but there was a long time there where you were ahead. Thought you were going to win it all tbh but then shit hit the fan at the end.

One of my favorite DI lists ever. I didn't want to say so in the running diary thread, so as not to spoil where I placed it, but this is right up there with Mr. V's DIV and GAF's DIV for me. That's really high praise, considering I still spin those playlists on the regular (or at least disc 1 of GAF's).

Congrats, phanan. You're obviously a master at these things. The breadth of stuff you work into your playlists is remarkable.

Mr. V
173 points
Highest placement: 1st
Lowest placement: 18th
Top 5 placements: 5


Entry:



Jibber-jabber:

I've been dying to do another DI and I reckon this might just be my favourite list. I have never used most of these artists before and in fact, most of this music has come out very recently - a fair chunk of it I've only had for a few weeks. But it all fits together. I place a great deal of importance on transitions and I'm really happy with all of these. Thematically, this list kind of follows where I've been at in my life over the last little bit. It just sounds like where I'm at. It's the music I listen to. Hope you like it. PS: My track 31 actually isn't 24 minutes long. Well, it is, but the first four minutes are the song and then it transitions into like 20 minutes of beach noise which obviously isn't compulsory listening.

Entry:

This is so unintentionally a very Hivey list, from the 00/10s heaviness to the complete lack of female artists - the latter was honestly intentional as an experiment to see if anyone would care or notice, and was also to challenge my own internal misogyny/self hate, but instead it just makes me look like a Brau-level dick. We all have our crosses to bear. The flow is probably all over the place but I was kind of inspired by galleries I've visited that have displayed artwork based on an overriding theme or feel rather than through medium or era. This all sounds so fucking pretentious, sorry. This is just a bunch of songs by other people. Anyway, here it is!! Happy Listening
