Every time a new issue of What Hi-Fi? is published, we update our playlist (on Spotify, Qobuz and Tidal) with a new selection of the music we've been listening to in the last month

If you want to get a earful of the music we've been listening to over the last four weeks or so, then check out our What Hi-Fi? playlist on Spotifyon Tidal and now also on QobuzSubscribe to the playlists and you'll never miss an update...

It's a sample of some of the tunes we've been using, to test with and to unwind after testing with, all wrapped up neatly in a self-contained playlist on your favourite streaming service. It's updated every time a new issue goes on sale.

This issue's accompanying playlist is our usual smörgåsbord of high art, of low-brow, of high fidelity and of low bass. It's a brand-new selection of 20 songs that runs some kind of gamut from Ghostpoet to Glen Campbell, from Augustus Pablo to DJ Shadow. Plus there's noisy bits, sweary bits and bits for dancing too.
