While that concludes the top 10 list, there was one track that does seriously deserve an honorable mention. It didn’t quite make the top 10, but it came so incredibly close, it was hard to decide which track was to make the list this year.

Lange Vs. Gareth Emery – Another Me, Another You (Original Mix) (Commercial) A track that boasts multiple great basslines, interesting rhythm, enchanting voice samples, and great melodies, this is one catchy track.
8.5/10

There you have it. Another year that contained some amazing music. We hope you enjoyed the list as much as we enjoyed making it. Here’s to another year of great music!
