Best of 2012

It's the end of the year, Christmas has come and gone in a flash, but now on the horizon the new year beckons. I don't know if it's just me but time is just flying by, so I thought that we should just stop and reflect on the past year in music. 

Pangs of nostalgia hit me as I look back at certain tracks, memories of people, places and events. 2012 has been an incredible year, we have seen the breakthrough of artists like Disclosure, Bondax, Karma Kid, who have hit the mainstream, some of the young prodigies who have done wonders for the genre. 

Hundreds of tracks have been shifted though, but the difficult choices have been made and the top 10 tracks of 2012 have been chosen. But let us not forgot other greats such as Village, Bailey, Maths time Joy, Taneli, AZ&TOR, Kaytranada, Luvian, kidnap kid and a personal favorite Boean. 

10. Jeremih - Fuck U All the Time (Schlohmo Remix)

This song is pure sex, a stunning production with the trademark style of Schlohmo.

9. Applebottom - I.M.O.G.E.N   

One of the young pioneers of the genre, his sound is so effortlessly funky and cool, any one of his tracks deserve a place on the top 10.

8. Disclosure - Boiling 

Who can forget disclosure, 'Boiling' really was the confirmation for me that they were going to be big, release of their album in March.

7. Doo Wop (Pedestrian & Maribou State Remix)

'Do wop' just oozes soul with old skool and garage vibes, Maribou state are in a league of their own.

6. Toyboy & Robin - To The Top 

The soundtrack to your new year celebrations, this is the track which hooked my addiction to Toyboy and Robin.

5. Karma Kid - LouLou

The 17 year old never fails to disappoint, absolutely killed it this year, supported from the likes of radio 1 and red bull studios. Check out 'lust love' and 'always' which deserve places on the top 10. 

4. Justin Martin - 'Baby I got That' 

This has to be my favorite Bondax track, it went down an absolute storm picked up by Pete Tong and dropped in Ibiza as one of the summer tunes. Always brings a smile to my face. 

3. Polkadot - Wasn't like that  

Who hasn't joined the Polkadot hype, big things to come in 2013 from this teenage, watch this space. 

2. Say My Name (Cyril Hahn Remix)

Cyril has blended this original into perfection, making the original almost unrecognisable, one of those songs which gives you goosebumps.

1. Aaron Lipsett & Fion. - Cognac

What a year it has been for Lipsett and Fion, Cognac is the jewel in the crown, an utterly stunning production of the Brandy vocals, even playing it now it was if i was playing it for the very first time.
