We’re almost there. A few more days and 2013 will be another one for the books. ‘Tis the time to summarize a score of minty fresh jams that didn’t fade away too quickly this year, which is saying a hell of a lot these days. This compilation could have easily had tracks replaced with others, and all would be the same to me. There is just too many to name that are equally as good but I guess narrowing it down to 10 appeals to us all. Note that this vaporwave clip Feeel by Torus above is my favorite video of the year and is why it’s there. All this said I’ll let you get on with it. Have a Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year.

It’s about that time of year when most of us are longing for summer once more (at least for those of us here in the Northern Hemisphere), and this video I assure you will not ease that yearning. As a youtube commenter so bluntly put it ”My Life Suck : (” aha. Solidifying everything that is summer, Alexander Tikhomirov conquers a vast amount sun-soaked, breezy warm memory on film, all backed by a good track from Perfectiona. I get an early 2000’s Blink-182 vibe from this. As soon as you press play, you’ll be swept away by the refreshing landscapes, and will let you know summer can be a state of mind anyways.

Today comes a new remix from the talented Etched, along with his debut album Pixelated that is out now. In the midst of a million and one Drake remixes, this one really is an attention grabber. The drums are fantastic and it’s easy to get lost in. The thing that appeals the most to me about this remix, along with Sampha’s lone release of the track is that they don’t contain the high pitched screeching of his voice like on the original with Drake (probably why Sampha released his own version) Listen up!

If you’ve heard the original Bedroom Bangers you’re probably a diehard upallnighter with a desire for orgasmic, just body crunching bass. I wouldn’t go as far as to say these tracks are chill in the sense of ‘ambient’ but they do have an ethereal bounce to them. All of them are tight, I personally high five all these tracks, So there you have it, some beats and some gibberish. If you want to know anything more about an individual artist, travel through their soundcloud to the rest of their discography.

Not yet a download on this Mura Masa gem but I am extraordinarily patient.
More after the jump, including a mix.

Dom McLennon (of Alive Since Forever) is a young East Hartford, Connecticut native high off his (our) consciousness, subconscious, unconscious? I don’t know, I’m baffled by the word word. Go with the flow and kick back to this spacey beat trapped in the clouds.

Yarin Lidor with the vocalist help of Atari Jones praise the blogasphere with this new head nodder. The amount of talent these days is crazy, I’m happy being a listener of all this great stuff.
