Wow, our optimistically titled Reader’s Choice award is getting harder and harder to compile. It’s always been a bit vague but as the years go by it’s getting tougher.
So, as you know by now, this isn’t the result of a poll. Back when we started it was the most downloaded tracks from the year. But as more and more tracks shifted to SoundCloud, and then our download links went 90% SoundCloud based it’s harder to glean from our state what people have been clicking on. Also, purely streaming tracks, track downloadable in exchange for a Tweet or a Like, video, mostly didn’t make the list. So if you could call this list anything, you can call it the Tracks-We-Can-See-From-Our-Stats-Were-Most-Clicked-On-Award. Reader’s Choice is rolls of the tongue better though.
The top tune was a total surprise. It was actually a track we’d forgotten about, but a good track nonetheless. It can to us via one of our favourite publicists as the work of her next-door neighbour, but turned out to be deservedly popular. A unique reMix that doesn’t conform to any one genre but works in so many areas.
♫ Ellie Goulding – Burn (Leo Kalyan reMix)
…and the rest of the list:
02: Chromeo – Over Your Shoulder
♫ The Sound Of Arrows – There is Still Hope (Fear Of Tigers reMix)
05: Perseus – Shadow Of The Beast
06: Ayer – Circle Down
10: Fear Of Tigers – Dream Of Love
