Welcome to Sunday’s Sounds – the home of our favorite music to listen to on a Sunday afternoon (or any day of the week for that matter). Whether you’re out and about with friends, at home recovering from a heavy weekend, or stuck at your desk finishing work, these playlists have been proven to brighten anyone’s day.

The beauty of “old skool” hip-hop is that it takes us back to a different time. As Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson eloquently put it: “The greatest hip-hop songs have the power to pull energy and excitement and anger and questions and self-doubt and raw emotion out of you …. The best hip-hop songs aren’t blueprints – they are calls to action, reminders that you can start a revolution in three minutes”. Now that summer has arrived and the sun is shining, kick back, relax, and take notes.
