2012 has again proven to be another huge year for the Electronic music in which we cover. With a host of major releases from established artists - ranging from 12” to full-length albums, it was always guaranteed to be a big year. However, there were also numerous surprises, with a number of new producers and labels emerging in 2012 - many of which you’ll see spread throughout our top 50. We’ll be posting ten of our favourite tunes each day until we hit number one, so be sure to check back daily for updates.

One Night by Fort Romeau
100% Silk get the sort of press coverage that most labels can only dream of. Whatever the reason for this (we won’t speculate), they do release some genuinely good music, and this LP is no exception. Kingdoms is Fort Romeau’s debut, though the London based producer doesn’t just make House music, he also doubles as La Roux’s keyboardist. It’s an interesting LP, albeit a relatively short one, which stays in a relaxed vein throughout. We’re tipping Pitchfork will be all over this one, so grab it now before they are, and boast to your friends about how ahead you are.
