Best artist of 2012.

 

Agreed.
The best things in the world are free.

It's now officially 2013 where I am, so here are some of my personal electronic music selections from 2012 like I promised a couple weeks back. This is naturally a very personal list and there are still a ton of releases (Morceau Subrosa, Ask the Dust, Burial's new EP... just to name a few) I've yet to hear from 2012 - some of which were even released today/yesterday, on New Year's Eve.

 

Originally I intended to have top threes for each category but found that difficult in many cases, so the number of entries if quite flexible, mostly determined by how many candidates I was able to eliminate from the initial list before I just couldn't find it in me to drop anything else. The names are in alphabetical order by artist, so don't think the names on top are my personal favorites or anything. Also note that many of these choices could be replaced by a different one were I to compile a similar list, say, a week from now. I've also included YouTube/Spotify/download/iTunes/Amazon links for all entries.

A couple of additional notes: The free EPs weren't easy to pick and I almost left them out because I don't typically download very many free EPs. Singles would probably have been a tough one with so many tracks out there that would be applicable, so I just wrote down the ones that came to mind first and trimmed the list down to five.

 

2012 was the best year in my life so far, so I'm interested to see what the new year brings. Hope you enjoyed the long post. gs1000.gif

Aww yeah, BT.
post #4069 of 5746

Right now, I'm hooked on pendulum. Watercolour is my favorite song so far

I've been listening to a lot of Brony electronic music eg. AlexS, Omnipony, Aviators etc for a while now and they all have some pretty awesome songs. 

However this is the song I am listening to right now:

What are your guys opinion on Example? I like a few songs of his from "Playing from the Shadows"

A personal favorite song of mine would have to be:

Alright, bear with me here, and I'm going to tell you where to get some awesome FREE MUSIC.

 

I want to give credit where credit is due, so here's where I first read about this music:

http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2012/12/nowplaying-a-sagittariun-and-perc-best-podcast-mixes-of-2012/

 

If you read that, you will see what I am talking about. Now, to make things easier, here is where you go to get the music:

http://soundcloud.com/elastic-dreams

 

From that link, download the first file, called "RA Podcast - RA332: A Sagittariun"

 

The file is 217.3 MB and the mix runs 1:34:56 and it's a constant-bit-rate 320 Kbps MP3.

 

And there you have all the information needed for over an hour and a half of great free music. k701smile.gif Check it out, it's excellent.

Speaking of free music, Stan SB has his new EP up for download, really good DnB there. Good to see another Pendulum fan in here as well, good stuff. In regards to Example though, I thought he just sang and had people produce for him (but I like his stuff).

Also, Arkasia just gave out a fantastic tune for free (commemoration of his grandma dying) called Angels.

The Stan SB is massive. 

 

Still pissed at Swire for this latest Pendulum ****.

On a related note. First proper anthem for 2013?

 

Easily my favorite on the EP. It's tracks like this that make me dance, jump, and just remind me that life isn't always ****ty like it seems to be lately. Music like this inspires hope for me. It just sounds...happy.

Exactly why I love Stan SB, everything is so uplifting and energetic. He's a fantastic producer who should have had labels pick him up much earlier.

I'm not too sure about most of his songs if he produces them or not. Playing in the shadows is probably the most typical dubstep sort of song on the album IMO

There are a couple though, namely Teddy Killerz' and Culprate's, but besides that I can't deal with the song anymore.

What do you think about AlexS's remix of it? It makes the song more exciting and lively IMO
