News 12/10/2018

We have been lucky enough to have the freedom of all music with trusty ol’ Spotify at our fingertips.

Shoving a multitude of our fave songs into a Spotify playlist and shouting, “where’s the Aux cord?” to our mates. This easy access and change in music taste has led to some interesting finds of the all-time top streamed artists, songs and albums.

You’ll find some our EDM mates Calvin Harris, Major Lazer and DJ Snake making history among the other killer artists and tracks.
