Here at The Record Press we want to create a community of musicians that build each other up. Artist promotion is at the forefront of what we do, so we’ve created a playlist of all the small scale artists we’ve interviewed or reviewed. After every article is posted we add the artist's work to this playlist to curate The Record List, a hub for the upcoming artists we’ve had the joy of speaking to. This gives you a variety of genres from pop, R&B and indie-rock.
A classic lineup of all things Motown! From The Supremes, The Temptations and Marvin Gaye, this smooth and funky playlist pays homage to the iconic record company Motown Records. Originally founded by Berry Gordy Jr 1959, Motown Records played a key role in the racial integration of popular music. "Head on Down to Motown" advocates the successful proponents of the Motown sound and style, exploring the record label's historic step for showcasing African-American talent.
A celebration of female musicians. The music industry for women is still a place riddled with sexism and inequality. International Women’s Day aims to celebrate, every year on the 8th March, the social, economic and political achievements of women despite the societal forces that work against them. We have curated this playlist to honour International Women's Day and female achievement in music culture, predominantly an indie and rock playlist, we hope to shed some light on a genre that some times under-represents women.
A collection of music from the world around us. Curated by the mobile application Shazam, this playlist honours the music from the world around us.

Conclusively, this playlist becomes a puzzle of timely moments where all the tracks were found.
