The DBS approved records that you should definitely listen to (aka my favorite 2016 releases)

Well it goes without saying that 2016 was a year of strange shit. In saying that though, there were some absolutely blinding releases last year that gave me all the feelings at once. There weren’t too many of those records but there was a still some great stuff that came out that made 2016 a but less shit than you may have remembered. In DBS world it was a year of wonder watching my three boys tackle challenges and overcoming them. A year in which my job became insane and I became a published author. A year of podcasting with my mate Ingmar who I would never have met if it wasn’t for this dusty old blog. A year of challenge and reward. Anyway enough of that – here we go.
