Playlist: Game On


To celebrate Peril’s latest edition, Skin in the Game, our latest You Don’t Sound Asian playlist is titled ‘Game On.’

You know when you’ve needed to book some sort of holiday or getaway for months but you haven’t been able to find or make the time to even think about pressing pause for a moment? ‘Game On’ is here to remind you that you can, and should – and nothing will fall apart, promise.

‘Game On’ is a quiet determination, a renewed strength, an empowered defiance. An introspective check-in, a re-evaluating of priorities, the resulting rejuvenation.

It’s full of some of the best music of the year so far. We’re treated to the killer newies from Rainbow Chan and Mitski; club bangers from Rina Sawayama, GUILDS, Jess Kent and Cherry Chan; what has to be my number one most played song of 2018 by London’s Nilüfer Yanya; a moody cut from ELSZ and euphoric vibes both soft and enthusiastic from Space Classic, St. Humain and greyl.

Get amongst it.

Keep your eyes on Peril’s Soundcloud for Skin in the Game x You Don’t Sound Asian exciting content, coming so, so sooooon.

In the meantime, take a break when you can. x
