This week’s Spotify-powered SolidSmack Radio Playlist brings an entirely new face-smack of great music to help propel you through those laborious, tedious design tasks for the next few days. This week we’re stepping back a few decades and dustin’ off our dancing shoes with some great Motown classics. We’ll start with some Diana Ross love from the Supremes and move through some Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, James Brown and others before wrapping up with some Rick James. If you need anything, Motown Marty is the one with the rhinestone skates on the dance floor.


Have any suggestions for next week’s playlist? How about a playlist specific to a design task? Let us know in the comments!
