  • I recently discovered the "top 20" list on my ipod, which I guess orders teh songs based on most-to-least plays.

    pretty amazing actually; I was surprised by a lot of them.

    Thanks for zipping that all up, Zilla!

  • Oliver $? man crowds love that track but i coulnt get into it.

    kinda felt like it's because anyone who doesn't know it thinks the dj is soon all sorts of crazy shit, add lsd and they start respondin to moodyman's questions (seen it with mine own eyes). I dot know, there's a really good article giving a harsh critical review of that track on little white earbuds that I found that really articulates the point better than I could formulate it.

    Todd terje is fire tho

    edit - i always hate it when folks just shit on something you dig. that said, i aint tryin to shit on this track, i just really cant seem to liek it. i would however be interested in the opposite side's opinion on what makes it a dope track beyond "the crowd loves it", because i think we all agree popular opinion isnt a good metric of "goodness".

    Jacques Greene ??? Another Girl (LuckyMe)

    This one really grew on me this year, great song.

    Lana Del Rey - Video Games (Joy Orbison rmx) - all him, can't stand this girl.
    Brandt Brauer Frick - Bop (P??p?? Bradock's Geoduck Dive Remix) - pepe is a genius, I celebrate his catalog.
    Soho 808 - Get Up Disco - it's cute.
    Adele - Rolling In The Heat (Jamie XX shuffle) - monster
    A Guy Called Gerald & System 7 - PositiveNoise (Carl Craig Remix) - best in the game at mastering his joints
    Rainer Trueby vs. Danilo Plessow - Schoko Bolla - transitions a little rough but still a banger, support fellow strutters. Africa Brasil baby.
    Ski Beatz - into pretty much everything he did this year.


    and I did not know there was a bosphorous bridges vol 2, probably all gone by now. Really love vol 1. :(

    Yes, a remix of one white artist by another white artist, done in a style that's pretty familiar to a lot of white people. How confusing.

  • surprised no one mentioned 212. out of the few new things i heard, that shit stood out. video was sick. seems to be blowing up now too. then again, i probably cant name 20 songs that came out this year

    Posted a selection of my rap picks in the other thread so, non rap related tracks that seem to have got a lot of play and in no particular order (amazing how much music this thread has put me up on over the last twelve months :

    About Group - You're No Good (Theor Parrish remix)
    Kuedo - Scissors
    Zomby - Natalia's Song
    SBTRKT - Sanctuary
    The-Dream - 1977 (Miss You Still)
    Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie XX - My Cloud
    John Maus - Streelight
    Dave I.D. - Marvel
    Martyn - We Are You In The Future
    Bon Iver - Halocene
    Frank Ocean - Swim Good
    Invisible Conga People - In A Hole
    PJ Harvey- England
    Africa Hitech - Out In The Streets
    Tapes - Atomica Riddim

    Also Oneohtrix Point Never - Sleep Dealer which only has a bastardised single version on youtube.
    Sure there's a lot more than that but seems like I've forgotten more music than I can remember over past 12 months.
