A note about our top 25 list and this year (last year) in EDM
The debate raged on long before we ever posted this list. Hundreds of Gmail back and fourths would prove the chaos it took to distil 2011 in to 25 songs (and five bonus tracks.) Is our list perfect? No. No list is. Is Avicii’s ‘Levels’ really the best song of the year. No. But, it is No. 1. If we ran wild with it, there’s a strong chance our top 25 would resemble our bonus tracks.
This was a great year for EDM, in general. The best one to date. The steady rise that begun in mid-2010 ascended through the roof in 2011. Big name DJ’s sold out shows in, literally, hundreds of seconds. Record labels promoted its artist’s tracks more than ever. The EDM blogesphere exploded and helped propel smaller artist success’. Splendid all around and there is more to come.
We hope our loyal readers have enjoyed, not just our top 25 countdown, but, the content on EO in 2011. Without you readers, we wouldn’t have an EO. More things are on the horizon in 2012 for EDM. And as it grows, we hope you continue to choose EO as the lenses to view it.
