There’s a reason why we put Shlohmo’s unreleased track as our number one tune of the year. Unless you listen to it, you probably won’t know why as it is making the remaining four tracks seem irrelevant.
Here are our version of the most looped/hyped releases of 2012, featuring household names such as TNGHT, Disclosure as well as 2012 rap sensation Kendrick Lamar. Lianne La Havas stole the spotlight with her soulful debut album while The xx booked a spot with their sophomore release, Coexist.
Destiny’s Child - Say My Name (Cyril Hahn Remix) on BBC Radio 1
Vancouver’s own Cyril Hahn’s been every bit deserving of the attention he’s getting the past couple weeks. Just days after a co-sign from The xx, his remix of Destiny’s Child’s ‘Say My Name’ was recently spun on BBC Radio 1. An absolute killer of a track that simply seduces you from the very first second.
Highly anticipated single from London-based band The xx is finally here. With recogisable guitar work and subtle drum rolls, I can’t even describe how beautiful this tune is. Even better, go listen for yourself.
