The Eclectic & Generational Spanning Playlist/Dominic Valvona

An imaginary radio show, a taste of our DJ sets, the Monolith Cocktail Social is a playlist selection that spans genres and eras to create the most eclectic of soundtracks. With tributes to those albums celebrating anniversaries this year too. Compiled by Dominic Valvona. This month’s edition includes nods to Cypress Hill (their highly influential West Coast Hip-Hop stoner raged debut is thirty years old this August), The Rolling Stones (Tattoo You is unbelievably forty years old this month) and The Who (their monolith piss stop, Who’s Next, is fifty years old).

Joining them are newish and old tunes from the Brazilian force in rap, Hus KingPin, a recently resurfaced Mick Ronson at the Old Grey Whistle Test live recording, a couple of cover versions of Brian Wilson magic from Jem Records recent celebratory compilation of California’s favourite son, and a high fluting meandering stunner from Jeremy Steig. Plus music from the Lotus Eaters, Bunalimlar, Black Randy & The Metro Squad, Les Shleau Shleu, Dennis Wilson, Shriekback, MF Grimm and loads more of the good stuff.

Settle for no substitutes; expect to hear anything and everything.
