Cobbler wins for best flow ever, but it reaches a point where that becomes a not-so-good thing. I'm on the Kele track and I can't tell a lot of these songs apart so far. It's great background music while I do some writing, but I couldn't pick a favorite. And holy shit, this is Kele?

I was expecting that. Similar to me thinking parts of your list or IWB's list run together. Love that you're enjoying it though and yes, it is Kele, and doesn't that sound fit his voice well. I still need to listen to his album.

I love this DJ Koze track, but you probably expected that. This is heading into more downtempo territory now, which is a nice, subtle change. I'm going to start recognizing a lot more songs as I go along. I've heard 4 out of the next 5 at some point or other.

I figured you'd know 95% of the rest of the list

God that DJ Koze album is great.

Through five tracks on Aliktor's list, my general feeling is that I should be doing some sort of rhythmic, moderately-paced fist pump for 20 straight minutes.

Really, really nice job flowing from dance to hip hop to indie rock. This is a massive step forward for you in terms of flow, Cobbs. The National kind of seemed to be on an island (move them next to Wilco, maybe?), but it's not a dealbreaker.

And you already know I love these songs. Well, except for Chance. I think he's a really poor MC. I was pleasantly surprised by the Something for Kate track, that shit was great.

Thanks man, I really tried to step it up a bit this time out in terms of transitioning between genres. The National probably fit better thematically than musically.

Stoked you enjoyed the SFK track, the guitar is just brilliant.

Courtney Barnett was awesome too. This list gets extra points to introducing me to two tracks I really liked.

The ending was a little jumpy, but I liked what you did there overall. The transition into Passion Pit was great. The transition out? Not so much. The transition into Avalanches? Great! The transition out? Not great. But then Immunity into Becalmed was fantastic, so it all works out in the end.

I really enjoyed this list. I could have done with fewer (or shorter) dance tracks, as the list feels a bit top-heavy (if you're going to mix it up, really mix it up, don't tack one list on to another). However, there was not one section I didn't enjoy as a whole. It's you and Padj for my front runners.

It's like an actual DJ set.

Also, "flow" as a descriptor makes my blood boil at this point.

Flow should only be used to describe rappers or menstrual cycles.

This is the exact comment I wanted to read for that portion of my list, thank you

Thanks a lot man, really. I'm supremely stoked you enjoyed the Barnett and SFK tracks, two of my favourite Aussie artists that I wanted to expose people to, and both are really worth digging into a bit more.

I was pretty damn happy with Immunity/Becalmed.

Or the state of the spice.

But really though, I'm more taken by the overall vibe or tone of a mix than I am by song-to-song transitions, unless there's a purposeful attempt to match tracks.

So much this. The transition has to be extremely jarring for me to even notice it in a bad way.
