Spoti-Fewapy is a new weekly feature whereby us here at Speech Fewapy Records create a playlist using popular online music catalogue, Spotify (TM). We’ll delegate this task to our artists, friends, community members and anyone else who wants to give it a whirl.
Spoti-Fewapy playlists are compiled with no boundaries in mind, as long as there is a running theme implied by a catchy title and explained with a brief introduction, anything is welcome.
This week, my (Daniel, Speech Fewapy Records & The Traps) playlist is entitled ‘2010 out of 10′, where I have included some of my favourite songs from what I think are a few of 2010’s best records so far.
