It feels like all we did was write about musicians dying last year but before we close the door on 2016, Stones Throw boss Peanut Butter Wolf has shared two bittersweet mixes in tribute to the talent that left us.

Titled RIP 2016, the selections obviously include Bowie, Prince, George Michael, Alan Vega and Phife Dawg but also feature some obscure names that may have escaped your newsfeed.
