2011. What wasn’t to love? The rise of weirdo R&B, the fall of chillwave, the end of R.E.M. We started the construction of this list over a month ago. One truly epic and extensive Google spreadsheet later, we arrived at this Top 50. We sorted and sorted and sorted, listened through a TON OF STUFF, “traded jabs” on whether James Blake or Jamie Woon put on the tougher persona, etc. Thanks for reading and we hope y’all enjoy the list!
Our dude Star Slinger let this sharp little mix off over the Christmas holiday, a re-do of a Mount Kimbie track from 2010. Slinger pitches up the vocals, throws down the roll of the rhythm track, and wraps it up neatly into a nice synced up instrumental. We like it.
