DA10year: The Early Years (2005 – 2009) Playlist

Over the course of 2015 we’ll be running a series of retrospective playlists to celebrate the history of Dine Alone. Our first playlist is a compilation of some of the staff’s favourite tracks and the songs that we feel define the label’s early history.
