Summer has officially come to an end and for a lot of us, it’s a season of change and new beginnings. Most will be settling down to the unfamiliar scent of university halls, planning projects and ideas to carry out before the end of yet another year, or even just resuming business as usual. As we welcome a new dynamic, it’s time to also welcome a refreshed mindset that it can only be up from here despite the unreliable weather and political uncertainty.

To soothe you through long working hours I’ve put together an RnB playlist that includes the sweet, sexy sounds of Etta Bond, Ari Lennox, and Snoh Aalegra. Experimental grooves from Hiatus Kaiyote and Robert Glasper. Old school love songs from Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill, and Jill Scott. You’ll also find some hidden gems from the likes of J Warner, Cleo Sol, ELIZA, Ivy and KTNA.

So without further ado, here’s a soundtrack to the wintry days to come.
