Best of the Blogosphere: April 2012

Written by:

Apr 3, 2012

Sometimes it’s hard picking my standout track of the month. In March there were several that might have been in contention for the April 2012 edition of The Best of the Music Blogosphere.

Notably, Diplo just about took the top spot two months in a row, this month for his collab with Nicky Da B (last month his collab with Usher was the top pick).

Also, Torro Torro’s tremendous BBC-Radio-1-rinsed remix of super-hot-Dim-Mak-up-and-comer Clockwork’s ‘Squad Up’, The Magician’s take on Sam Sparro’s latest, and pretty much everything Gigamesh did in the last four weeks were strong showings.

But in the end, it really wasn’t difficult choosing the top pick. Burial and Four Tet’s new collaboration Nova stands above just about everything I’ve heard this year.

Hope you guys enjoy this edition as much as I did!

As usual, anything that is offered here as a free download is also available for free download from the artist or label, and anything that’s for sale we can not offer as a download.
