Excellent playlist!
For those that like their year overview in mixed format: Grandmix 2012 by Ben Liebrand (100 songs, three hours)

I so hope you didn’t mistake my ‘O Children’ entry with their new album ‘Apena’ for the band ‘Apnea’..


Hi Sentry-23. Don’t worry, O Children are in there, but it’s the single track as we couldn’t include the full album. Enjoy!


Good list! Love that Japandroids track…

It’s Lana Del Rey, not Del Ray.

Quick question: Is there a way to get this channel offline without adding each song to a playlist manually?


The XX <3

It’s funny the it says “Countries: AE, AU, GB, IE, NZ”
that means that the news is for me since i’m from AE = UAE (correct me if i’m wrong English is not my first languages you know).
Well the funny thing is when i try to enter the music or video unlimited it says the service is not available to you region.
great way to treat us sony :3

Can you guys inform when we’ll get the offline mode for the iOS app? What is the point of trying to compete with Spotify and other music services when we can’t even get our music offline, the whole point of having it as an iOS app is so that i could listen to it ‘on the go’ when i’m at home i can play it through my TV/VITa the latter of which has an offline mode. I would appreciate an update on this, as it’s quite ridiculous a service one has to pay such an amount for doesn’t even have a simple feature like this.


Hi SamiFFXII, thanks for your message. As we have said before, this is a huge priority for us at the moment and something we’re working on continuously. iOS offline will certainly be here in 2013, and most likely within the next 6 months. Thanks.

Is this playlist available to Australian users? When I click the link it goes to the site home page and displays the message “The server sent an unrecognized response. Please try again later.”


Hi Mr_Pickle. This playlist is available in Australia, I’ll look into this now and it should be visible shortly. Thanks
