Kylie Minogue worked with some of the hottest tastemakers in popular music on new LP Kiss Me Once (Pharrell, Ariel Rechtshaid and MNEK), so it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that she has her finger on the pulse. Need proof? The legendary diva put together a playlist (romantically titled Back To Mine) for digital music service Rdio and it’s everything.

The “Sexercize” advocate shows her hipster credentials by including recent cuts from indie divas Sky Ferreira, Grimes and Solange as well as a smattering of tunes from (relatively) obscure artists like Blood Orange, Le Youth and Jonsi. Amusingly, she also picks Vanessa Paradis‘ camp 1987 novelty hit “Joe Le Taxi” and a bunch of ’90s R&B tracks like Janet Jackson‘s “That’s The Way Love Goes” and Hi-Five‘s “I Like The Way (The Kissing Game)”. Get in the mood with Kylie after the jump by streaming her playlist.
