Mixes and sets are what make the electronic world go round. I don’t normally share them with you guys—this is Songs to Dance to after all—but I spend a large chunk of my time listening to them, zoning out to them, dancing to them, smiling to them, working to them, et cetera. Mixes are a great way to discover new music, both because of the DJ’s tastes and their friendships with producers who’ll slip them a track before release (sometimes years before they are available even, cough Joy Orbison cough).
There were thousands upon thousands of sets, mixes and podcasts this year, and I heard maybe 1% of them. Of that 1%, these are the 15 that I liked most. Enjoy.
