50 Tracks Of 2013
This has been our first year as a site so naturally we’ve held our ear a little more to the floor when listening out for new music. So, to finish off in standard end of the year fashion we’ve put together a list of our 50 main picks from 2013, concluding with our top 10 choices.
It’s a varied selection, but good music comes from all over and this only serves to highlight that. More importantly, it offers a solid snapshot into the type of music we’ve been listening to and write about. Prominently spanning the various corners of electronic music – but collectively bound by their structural elements of soul and groove – the beats on the list navigate through various styles with a cross-pollination of genres on show. Having seen various other lists on online publications, we’re confident that this list offers an equally comprehensive run through of what ought to be recognised.
