"Love Is Lost (Hello Steve Reich Mix By James Murphy For The DFA)"
Over the years, LCD Soundsystem probably owed more to David Bowie than just about any other artist, so it makes perfect sense that the DFA head honcho would take on remix treatment for the man himself. The result is a perfect meshing of sounds and one of the best songs of the year. Let's hope this isn't the last collaboration we hear from the two.
L.A. production duo Nguzunguzu makes some of the most forward-thinking experimental dance music around. With its video game sword effects and mechanical beat, "Mecha" lives up to its title.
A beautiful banjo-driven track by Boston-based band Mutual Benefit, "Advanced Theory" is a perfect rainy-day soundtrack. Jordan Lee's voice in particular is a soothing pleasure to behold.
Pusha T feat. Future
With his album topping the rap charts, Pusha T has finally established himself as the rap superstar he deserves. Behind a dark, Yeezus-esque beat, Pusha absolutely kills this introspective track.
As one half of Rhye, Milosh released one of the year's best low-key pop albums. Now he's back with a solo effort that's every bit as beautiful.
