Hip-hop, music, the world—everything moves at lightning speed these days. Blink and a month has flown by, along with more great music than you can remember.

The first month of 2017 was no different, bringing us plenty of excellent new music, including bangers from Migos, Future and Big Sean, laid-back grooves from Sampha, Syd and Khalid, new music from up-and-coming talents like Levi Carter, Jimi Tents and SiR, and much more.

So enjoy our Best of January playlist, bookmark DJBooth for February, and make sure you also check out our ongoing Best of 2017 playlist, which will be updated over the course of the entire year.
