[Awards] The electronic rumors Awards: BEST SONG – electronic rumors’ top 20 songs of 2013

 

Awards2013Song

Here’s the big one! In a year that was shifted in favour of excellent albums, there were still a heap of songs that stood out from the pack. The top songs of the year came from a multitude of genres, so if you’re looking for ‘the best of Disco’ or ‘the best of ElectroPop’ you’re not going to find it here, but these outfits were making some standout, human, emotional electronic music this year.

Twelve months is a long time, so, as ever, we probably missed something rounding up the year. Apologies to the missing, or the overlooked. But what’s done is done, and we’re happy with the end result.

So, our winner, London based Disco master Blende, came as a surprise to ourselves as much as anyone. Unlike last year where we had out big tunes in out head, this year our attention was taken mostly by albums, so we didn’t have any definite choices in mind when reviewing the year’s singles. However, as soon as 72 tracks were whittled down to 20, and then put in order, like a ray of light it became glaringly obvious that Blende’s Rikki was the tune we rocked hardest to, and had on repeat the longest, in the last twelve months. An utterly infectious, funky as all hell, Rikki combined a dancefloor compulsion with Pop catchiness. Which is absolutely perfect for us. It couldn’t have been anything else really.
