Exclusive Playlist: Ben Hobbs

South London producer/multi-instrumentalist Ben Hobbs has put together an epic playlist for Indietronica. If you don’t know of him yet, you soon will!

Still Parade – “Concrete Vision”

An artist I’ve had the pleasure of working with recently, this song reminds me of a time before I was born, in a really good way.

Banks – “Better”

This song gave me chills the first time I heard it. I love the way it builds, and the immaculate production.

Raury – “God’s Whisper”

I imagine Raury’s songs truly sound just like he wants them to sound. It doesn’t matter if they do or don’t fall snugly into a genre. I feel God’s Whisper shows that at its finest.

Jarryd James – “Do You Remember”

I love the moodiness of this song and the relentless groove with Jarryd’s confidently soft vocals.

St. Lucia – “Love Somebody”

The production on this song is great, and the fact it’s a really poppy track but has these old school instrumental sections in it.

Frank Ocean – “Lost”

A song that stays simple and interesting at the same time, I love everything about this.

Cocteau Twins – “Heaven or Las Vegas”

This is one of those songs where I straight away felt like I just knew it, which is weird because I still don’t understand the lyrics very well, but that doesn’t matter in the slightest.

CHINAH – “Minds”

I had ‘Minds’ on repeat many times when I first heard this band. It’s a really warm and nostalgic song.

Matt Corby – “Monday”

His voice is amazing, this is just good honest songwriting.

The Police – “Every Little Thing She Does is Magic”

Every little thing The Police did was magic.

Ben’s new single, ‘Cold Sweat’ is all about realisation; when you finally see the truth for how it is and now have the power to change. It is off his forthcoming debut EP ‘Sweet Enough’, out on 6 May. Pre-order it on iTunes.

Sounds like: Tears For Fears, Cape Lion, The Levity
