Top Ten Tracks of 2016 (#9)

Continuing to countdown the top 10 tracks of 2016, we’re moving on to Number Nine.

#9 Thankful – Feki

2014 and 2015 saw Feki receive some radio play love but I believe 2016 was the year the Brisbane producer really shone through.

From the fade in ‘Thankful’ is full of so many positive vibes. In a year many have seen as full of negativity we should remember that so much good has come from it too. That’s the feeling Feki’s ‘Thankful’ gives me and that’s why it’s made my top ten this year.

2017 COUNTDOWN (#10)


As the countdown to 2017 I’m celebrating by posting my ten favourite tracks for 2016.

These are my personal favourites, and believe me, it was so hard to pick these from all the great tracks that were released this year.

#10 Ngerraberrakernama – Emily Wurramara

Emily Wurramara has had a massive 2016, releasing her debut EP Black Smoke. Both ‘Black Smoke’ and ‘Ngerraberrakernama’ received lots of love from triple j and triple j Unearthed. While I love both of these tracks, ‘Ngerraberrrakernama’ wins it out for me purely by how catchy it is.

If you’re a lucky Queenslander you can see her play at the Woodford Folk Festival on December 27. She’s also heading off to the US in early 2017 to spread her beautiful music there.

Wishing Emily the best of luck with 2017! You’ve more than earned your place as one of the best catches from Unearthed in 2016.

Stay tuned tomorrow when I introduce #9 on the list!
