Compilation, Featured | Mach’s Top 10 Free Downloads & Top 10 Purchases of 2012

Posted by on January 8, 2013

Since a lot has changed over the past year in how artists put out their music to the blogs I decided to create two lists this year. My first top 10 being all free downloads from the year and the second being my top 10 purchases of 2012. The lists came out very different from each other but none the less contain 20 tracks that I would not want to go without. The lists count down from my number 10 picks to my number 1 picks. Just click ‘Read On’ and enjoy.


House | Mimada’s Top 12 for 2012

Posted by on January 5, 2013

With the renaissance of music festivals and growing popularity of electronic music, it’s safe to say my attendance to live shows grew exponentially in 2012 (not that I had that many years under my belt to begin with). However, this really changed my perception of music and how I listened to it. Before, I would see an artist based on my familiarity with them and listen to their songs on repeat in the parking lot until moments leading up to the show. Now, it’s more so that I attend a concert based on the artist’s live talent and/or how much fun the performance will be. When I hear their songs in the future, I get sentiments of that first time I heard it sitting outside in a grassy field surrounded by flag holders or squished up against girls in moonboots rather than it’s premier on SiriXM radio. For me, music in 2012 was not about what would get me out of bed in the morning or play in the background at the gym while I worked out: it was what I could dive into and take me away from any known reality. I guess it’s always kind of been that way, but once you get a peek at my top 12, I think you’ll understand what I mean.
