This week’s eclectic mix moves from soul to hip hop, through big orchestra to singer-songwriter lushness. But each track has that sticky funk, that gets in your head and makes you want to groove. Whether they’re singing about the stickiness of good lovin’, that makes you want to hang around for more – or the sticky good greenery you want to roll up and huff and puff – these ten tunes are gonna get in your soul, and keep you coming back for more.
