Great list!!

 

So excited the new Formation album is out!!!!! :) Surprisingly I'm loving it even more than I thought I would (which I expected to be a lot so that's amazing for once to have something not just live up to expectations but exceed them entirely haha)

How about something for kids? Check out "kidsBeat" by Matthew Valcourt. Something different on the kindie scene. Nursery rhymes that sound like adult popular music, but kids love! https://open.spotify.com/album/4KBzNu0dkxRlfjZWAHGwMo

If you want the best of both worlds with music, check out Nos Rider - progressive electronic (like chaimsmokers) and dubstep/techno house fusion (like skrillex)
