It might be fanciful, but I hope that this week’s spring vibes have somehow made its way into this latest playlist. The new tracks from Grouper, Sade, Aisha Badru and Jennifer Castle have a certain satisfying warmth to them.

We’ll be back next week with some exciting news. In the meantime, feel free to get stuck in to the superior sonic selection below…
