This collection of the best tracks from the past two months of musical adventuring contains genres as contrasting as mind-melting glitchpop, deconstructed gangsta rap and 90s grunge revisionism, however despite the wildly differing artists and styles contained within you can be assured that there is one dominant link between them all... General goodness. Or to be even more scientific... not shitness.
This collection of best tracks from the past four weeks is a highly sophisticated affair, featuring sounds that can only be described as cooly reserved or emotionally detached. Basically if you don’t look exactly like one of the members of Chromatics in the above image then you probably don’t have any business here.
Prepare to have your pants scared off with January and February’s mix of best tunes, featuring brand new music from horror maestro John Carpenter, The Duke of Burgundy’s soundtrack for a sado-masochistic relationship between two lesbian entomologists and the theme to It Follows, a film that features the best horror movie score since… well… since John Carpenter first took to his trusty synth in the late 70s.
I like music. You like music. I like making mixtapes. I like you. Hey let's make this happen! Here are the the best 20 songs from the last couple of months all in one little playlist just for you.
I currently find myself sitting back and reassessing why it is exactly I developed a passion for music and how this passion manifested itself in the art of making mixtapes, CDs or Spotify playlists.
Celebrate the end of another month by listening to a whole bunch of great songs, some of which are up to the venerable age of two months old now.
Here are the best tracks released in the last two months in accordance with Popdin's not so humble opinion.

Here are all the songs that I've been enjoying on my Sony Walkman while prancing around the Popdin office in leg warmers and a shoulder-cropped sweatshirt.
I find Tuesday is the best day for this, because I have the office to myself. Tuesday is also the day I go without bottoms on.
Ranking your favourite songs of the year is a bit like ranking your closest friends. Hmm, that seems like a good bit of procrastination. Here we go:
Pierre> Spadge>Franklin> Tina Arena>Charles> Fat Bob>Cakey Dave>Bazza>Spazza>Stabz>Zillionaire Toby>Steve>Fat Steve>Chris 1>Terrible Stuart>Podge.
That was easier than I thought. Tina Arena slips further down the list the more time passes since her last hit single and the more we forget she used to be famous.
SPEAKING OF HIT SINGLES!!!
