Launching the March mixtape into your aural atmosphere, i-D Online presents the third in our series of tunefully on-trend playlists. Setting the pace to help you win the race, this 17-song strong selection of what’s good is guaranteed to get you Sprung for Spring. Listen in.
Profiling new artists alongside the more established, we ease you in gently with a collection of soothing acoustic sounds courtesy of JJ, Lykke Li and Alexander. Not wanting to lose ground, the pace soon quickens, bringing up the beat with a host of expert remixes from Hudson Mohawke, The Shoes and Mascara. Prepping the way for the A-list arrival, artist extraordinaire Lil B, Beth Ditto, Becoming Real and Junkie XL bring the bulk. Chewing though our edit of their freshest tunes, designed to infect your airwaves and get you ready for a well-earned weekend, this is one strong sounding medley. Rounding things up nicely, we depart on a super exclusive track from Crookers’ latest E.P., signalling their highly anticipated return to the scene and presenting their latest comrade Dr. Gonzo. Listen here!
Getting into the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day we got Irish lad Rob Whoriskey to etch us up an illustration for this month’s mixtape. i-D Online and Mr Whoriskey have been tight for a while, and this is one young scally we recommend you keep an eye on. Born under a shamrock his cheeky artwork brandishes the character of a true Irishman. Check out his ever growing and utterly impressive online portfolio here.
