W8’s Top 11 of 2011

Posted by on January 9, 2012

Obviously there’s a ton of tracks that should’ve made this list having it not been for just 11 tracks. It’s very unlikely a track would ever reach my collection if it couldn’t find a place on here. The electoral process was decided by the tracks I felt didn’t get the proper recognition, that being said I intentionally left some out because why bother adding tracks I posted a few days ago (like this, that & the third) for that reason they aren’t present on this compilation. Anyways, enjoy!

W8’s Top 11 of 2011

11. Medina – Addiction (Alexander Adstedt Remix) : A memorable record of the year, didn’t get the recognition it deserved so why not.

10. Spor – Pacifica (Chasing Shadows Remix) : The kind of dubstep you spend an eternity trying to find.

9. Cities Aviv – Float On : My kind of Hip Hop, a solid straight through verse filled with notable poetry.

8. Sander van Doorn & Adrian Lux – Eagles (Omar Andino & Kelvin Beat Remix) : A progressive house gem.

7. Benny Benassi – Come Fly Away (Dash Total’D Remix) : If there was ever a need to define a gem this would be it.

6. EmB – Night Drive : EmB is a firm reminder of Hip Hop’s potential.

5. Christoph Andersson – Tuxedo : From the moment you click play, you know it’s ready to make a dance floor out of anywhere.

4. Ndeluv – The Love Song : I don’t usually hear R&B portrayed with such a cold beat, one of my favorites.

3. Dinka feat. Hadley & Danny Inzerillo – Reach For Me (Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman Remix) : I’d say the most overlooked progressive track of ’11 would be this, get ittttt!

2. Altimeter – Astronought : It’s usually the chill records that have the longest lasting effect. There’s an incredible story behind this track and the reason for why Altimeter produced music. Unfortunately he’s calling it a day and retiring from production so consider this special.

1. Lapalux – Time Spike Jamz : First place may come as a surprise to a few, it’s been my favorite record for the better part of the year. Why you may ask – artists like Lapalux grab inspiration from absolutely nowhere and that makes for originality I admire. It’s my favorite track of the year because prior to hearing it, I never heard anything else like it.
