Songs

My top 50 songs in 2015.

It’s mostly female sung electronic pop, not-boring drum & basselectronic and a pinch of alternative.
1, 2, 5, 12, 44, 50 are from the PC music genre which a friend introduced me to, and I can’t get enough of.

Null – Almost

Released: 2 March 2015

Null - Almost

This was my favourite find of 2015!
From Melbourne, Australia.
Intelligent electronic with some ’90s techno and house sounds in there.
I also enjoyed this Hardcore/Rave mix by him.
He has one of the best artist websites I’ve seen. A rich multimedia experience where the visuals perfectly complement the music. Felt like I was experiencing the visual half of the EP.

After listening to the first three tracks I was so excited, I looked for and bought tickets to her March 2016 show in London.

Released: 27 February 2015

Skrillex & Diplo — Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü Cover

Walking through Leicester Square after work one day I heard, “To Ü (feat. AlunaGeorge)” played on a loud speaker by some male dancers. What is this song? This is great. I Soundhounded it I found that it was by Jack Ü.
This album is a lot of fun. If I was a party person, I’d play this album at my party.
