48. Hot Chip – Flutes (Sasha Remix)
The don of techno music keeps his name relevant with a massive release of Hot Chip’s anthem ‘Flutes’.
47. Eric Prydz – "Allein"
Notably one of the biggest names in dance music, Eric Prydz re-emerged this year with a tour and double CD. His chanting anthem ‘Allein’ became the standout track from this collection.
46. Qulinez - Troll (Original Mix)
Signed to Steve Angello’s Size Records, Qulinez made their mark on EDM with their inaguaral release of Troll. The track was played everywhere and was edited consistently.
45. Deadmau5 - The Veldt
Inspired by deceased sci-fi author Ray Bradbury, this track showcases Dedamau5’s supreme production abilities which pair perfectly with Chris James’ vocals.
44. Tiesto & Wolfgang Gartner - We Own The Night (Original Mix)
With great vocals from Luciana, classic Wolfgang electro synths and Tiesto’s unmistakable breakdown, this song was guaranteed to be a smash hit.
43. Mat Zo - It's Yours
Transcending genres constantly, Mat Zo’s Bipolar EP held this gem. Starting off as a deep house tune and quickly gravitating to progressive – Mat Zo continues to chart his own path
42. Tommy Trash – Cascade
Tommy Trash had a huge year in 2012 and “Cascade” was one of the highlights. While this featured the standard Tommy Trash sounds such as kick drums, synths and a big room melody, the beauty of this track was that it added in a progressive element that made this an instant classic.
41. Justice - New Lands (A-Trak Remix)
Justice’s “New Lands” in itself was a fantastic track, that being said A-Trak somehow was able to make it even bigger than it already was thanks to the addition of some drums and an insane synth line.
