From Cupcakke's "LGBT" to K Rizz's "Imagine If." 

"I love that track 2 death," Warren Wolfe says over text as he frantically sends through a last-minute addition to his playlist. The track, "LGBT" by Cupcakke, is an all-out banger that reflects the artist's queer-leaning taste and properly closes a roundup of Wolfe's go-to songs. Across genres that span everything from ambient and grime to electronic and pop, Wolfe curated a collection of music to celebrate the release of his latest single, "Stranger," a queer dance track about hook-up culture.

For his playlist, the Brooklyn-based vocalist gravitated toward female vocalists but, overall, selected songs that mix "sensitivity and chaos." That means appearances from one of his biggest inspirations, Arca, as well as newer discoveries like Rina Sawayama, Lovozero, and OUT100 alum serpentwithfeet. Keep your ear out for "Perfect Blue" by Orrin--a track that Wolfe helped produce this year--and certified ragers from Sugar Shane and K Rizz that he classifies as songs that would be on rotation if he hijacked the aux cord at a house party.
