The Fuss List


100 of our favourite songs released in 2015

2015 was a great year for local independent or underground music with a great expanse of good music released. This left us not choice but to launch The Fuss List which details 100 of our favourite tracks released the previous. The lists is separated into five different sections being Rap, Electronic, Indie, Rock and the Top 25, with the former four organised in no particular order and our Top 25 listing our favourite songs in ascending order regardless of genre.

Rap includes all the sub-genres of rap and hip-hop music.

Electronic includes all sub-genres of electronic music from ambient to gqom.

Indie includes all the tracks in the more gentle sub-genres of rock music from acoustic to kwela.

Rock includes all the tracks in the heavier sub-genres of rock music from psych to metal.
