Spice’s Top 12 of 2012
Posted by Spice on January 5, 2013
Less than a week into 2013, here are the songs that continue to have the strongest possible association for me with the crazy year that was 2012. Note: heavy on the trance.
12) Mat Zo feat. Linnea Schossow – The Sky
11) Armin van Buuren feat. Ana Criado – I’ll Listen
10) Aligator feat. Daniel Kandi – The Perfect Match
9) Beat Service – Fortuna
8) Bassnectar & DC Breaks feat. Mimi Page – Breathless
7) Solarstone with Aly & Fila – Fireisland (Aly & Fila Uplifting Mix)
6) John O’Callaghan – Stresstest (John Askew Remix) [Armin's "Abruptly The Sound Ceased" Live Edit]
This is kind of a cheat, because this specific version of the remix that includes the vocal sample has only aired in Armin’s live sets. However, it’s one of my favorite things to come out of 2012, so a spot it deserves.
5) Orjan Nilsen – Burana
4) Above & Beyond feat. Zoe Johnston – Alchemy (Above & Beyond Club Mix)
3) Solarstone – Voyager
2) Armin van Buuren pres. Gaia – J’ai Envie De Toi
1) Omnia & IRA – The Fusion
Overplayed though it was, this is the song that defined 2012 for me. The opening chords will always take me right back to UMF, EDC, and the entire insane summer that followed. Without a doubt my song of the year.
Paul Van Dyk feat. Arty – The Ocean
Chicane & Ferry Corsten – One Thousand Suns
Markus Schulz feat. Ana Diaz – Nothing Without You
Andrew Rayel – Aeon of Revenge
Sunny Lax – Isla Margarita
