Another year, another recap of the best music that’s filled our ears and pages in the last 12 months. We’ll be splitting up our 100 favourites into four categories to cover all bases – ‘Electronic’, ‘Remixes’, ‘Hip-Hip & Soul’ and ‘Best of the Rest’.
Once again, we launch with a category that we struggle to come to terms with. Not because of the music itself, but the way in which we’ve had to group disco, house and techno together in one broad category, from dancefloor fillers to relaxing late-night jams, beach beckoners to winter warmers. Sorry for the appalling pigeon-holing but we hope the quality of music on display more than makes up for it.
To help you digest it all in one go, we’ve collected them all into one Mixcloud mix, going for a sonic progression rather than an arbitrary order of preference. Grab the full tracklist inside the player and also listen to as many we could find on a Soundcloud playlist too.
