Top 25 of 2012
01 Christopher Norman & The Reverb Junkie – You Don’t Know (Alin Dimitriu remix)
This one just blew my mind completely. The vocals really shine in Alin’s heartfelt orchestration. Foreverlove!
02 Moon Boots – Sugar
Summer anthem of 2012. Brilliant hook and cunning use of the Janet factor!
03 Todd Terje – Inspector Norse
Another anthem from the Menergetic king of disco-swag Todd Terje himself!
04 Özgür Can feat. Rasmus Kellerman – The Kings
Finally the blip blop master of the Öz released his debut album! Huuuuuge track!
05 Jonas Rathsman – Since I Don’t Have You
French Express kept on dominating all through 2012. World domination imminent with this stomper!
06 Perseus – Seychelles
Yet more French Express. The head honcho himself with this Balearic track full of sun and juices!
07 Isaac Tichauer – Every Word
Isaac blew my mind with his remix for Tony Betties, but this is in a completely different league!
08 The Supermen Lovers – Say No More (Jupiter Remix)
Those frenchies know how to create energetic hooks!
09 Speech Debelle – I’m With It (Louis La Roche Remix)
Quite unique take on how to remix a hip hoppy rap track. Supremely executed by the Roche himself!
10 Jakwob – Electrify (Sega Bodega remix)
We don’t like dub-step. So it’s something rather special when a dub-step track ends up on our top of the year list!
11 Jupiter – One O Six (A.N.D.Y. Remix)
A.N.D.Y.’s really got his thing down over the course of 2012. This one marked a highpoint!
12 Van She – Jamaica (Plastic Plates Remix)
The producer of the year 2012 has got to be Plastic Plates. The way he just kept topping himself is UNCANNY!
13 Imogen Heap – Hide And Seek (End The Noise Remix)
This one was quite a find I still feel. How lucky that End The Noise let audioavalon.com have the exclusives for this before anybody else.
14 Bryan Ferry – Alphaville (Todd Terje remix)
The Terjelator at his thing again. This time he took the Ferry.
15 Drop Out Orchestra ft. Christopher Norman – In The Dark
What can I say? I Love D O O, and I love Chris! So when they team up magic happens!
16 Gotye – Somebody That I Used To Know (Klar & PF Remix)
The most played song of 2012 in the only remix that didn’t get played nowhere near enough. Klar & PF are a duo to watch!
17 Goldroom – Fifteen
Goldroom didn’t release his remix for Alpine’s ‘Hands’. I’m still a bit cross about that. But this one’s a nice band aid on that unhealing wound.
18 Munk & Peaches – You Can’t Run From My Love (Classixx Remix)
Classixx have been favorites of mine for years. They have a great way of reinventing themselves and their sound.
19 Ben Browning – Feels Like
Sing-a-long of the year. Happy time!
20 Perseus – Love In Zanzibar
Deep and delicious chords served with a slice of lemon.
21 ColeCo – Ricky Smiley
This one was everywhere this summer. Respect!
22 Collage – Romeo Where’s Juliet? (SYE ‘Dub Like The Romans Do’ Edit)
Quite a catch in my opinion. Great great edit!
23 Nine Lives feat Jaki Graham – 1985 (Drop Out Orchestra Remix)
D O O! Do the voodoo you do!
24 Chris Malinchak – There I Was (Original Mix)
25 The Rapture – In The Grace Of Your Love (Poolside Remix)
It was way too hard to get this one here in Euroland. Still on my playlists!
