W8’s Top 12 of 2012

Posted by on January 8, 2013

This image above accurately depicts my hiearchy of diversified beats for ’12. Call me weird, but I like to hear tracks as though they’re alive… as if a monster is trying to express itself through sound. This has the most chilling effect, and all these have that. Honourable mentions go to an abundance of EDM tunes that don’t appear on the list. I am forever indebted to that insane energy; no other genre can comprehend, but for now let’s have some alternative listens.

12. Rain Dog – Think Of You

11. Destiny’s Child – Say My Name (Cyril Hahn Remix)

10. Maths Time Joy – Faces

9. KO KO – Float

8. Jai Paul – Jasmine

7. Lapalux – Gutter Glitter

6. Great Skies – Dreamscape

5. Florence & The Machine – Spectrum (Maya Jane Coles Remix)

4. Pretty Lights – We Must Go On

3. The XX – Reconsider (Jamie XX Remix)

2. Burial & Four Tet – Nova

1. Lukid – USSR
I’m always intrigued by things that don’t make sense. Conveniently my favorite video of the year as well.
