Top Tracks Of 2016

22 December 2016

Well 2016 has been an…interesting year. Musically speaking though its been a pretty incredible one. We’ve selected 5 tunes each, which we feel were particularly brilliant.

JC’s top 5 tunes of 2016

In no particular order:

Zero T & Fierce – In Circles

Pretty much defines the term “roller” for me. Made it into every set since it’s release, just a pure instrumental banger.

Kaytranada & Vic Mensa – Drive me Crazy

99.9% was one of the best albums this year and Kaytranada is still one huge don. Could have picked any one of the tunes off this LP but this one just edges it as my favourite.

LSB – Capture My Heart

Pretty sure an LSB tune will make it into everyone’s top 5 for 2016. Content was an incredible album and this is my favourite tune off it. Multiple big ups to Luke for this LP.

Chance the Rapper – Angels

One of my favourite rappers to come out in recent years. Love the gospel vibe to this whole release and “Angels” makes it into my top 5.

Alix Perez – Drifting

Struggled to not include a Perez tune in this list. Alix has gone back to the soulful tip in a big way in recent times and we’re extremely grateful for this. 1985 music will be one of the labels to look out for in 2017.

Tom’s top 5 tunes of 2016

In no particular order:

Josh Butler – Need Me

One of a couple of Josh Butler tunes that could have made it in to this list. He’s one of the only house producers that I consistently follow, and he effortlessly generates such a groove on every track.

Calibre – Space Time

Being on the Shelf life series, it technically isn’t a tune written in 2016. Regardless, this is one timeless piece of music from Calibre. Drum and bass well and truly at its finest.

GLXY – Tate & Lylse (Phaction remix)

One of us had to fit in a GLXY tune here somewhere…massive props to Phaction on this remix. The bassline on this beast is spot on, and we’re not afraid to say it…a lot better than the original!

Mefjus – Suicidie Bassline VIP

Maybe a slightly unexpected appearance on this list. Hats off to Mefjus, just a ridiculously gassed tune.

Anderson .Paak – Your Prime

Really late on this one, that beat though. Such an infectious vibe.
