Office Listening — July 2023 Spotify Playlist

Soundfly’s “Office Listening” is our monthly playlist on Spotify that includes selections from what the team at Soundfly HQ is listening to and enjoying, as well as newly released tracks from the Soundfly subscriber community, music from our online course instructors and mentors, and listening recommendations culled from our Discord.

This month, following the launch of Ian Chang’s Warped Rhythms & Abstract Beats course, we’re spotlighting some songs he’s featured in (see Ian’s solo track which starts the playlist, Matthew Dear and Landlady). You can also hear new songs from Soundfly extended community members like Carla Malrowe, Hazel Bloom, Gian Torri, Arthur Moon, Julia Kent, Ben Folds, Elijah Fox’s alter-ego, and Ike Iloegbu (mastering). Plus we added tons of new finds courtesy of the Soundfly Discord.
