As the middle of the year draws to a close and we are beginning to embrace the second half of 2018 (Yeah, we’re almost at the end of 2018. Pretty crazy.) It’s a good time to reflect on the great releases that have graced our auditory sphere within the last 6 months, with many fantastic albums and tracks hypnotizing and engaging on so many levels; artists breaking away from the norm, experimenting with all types of sound and allowing us as the listeners to enter a world of new music that truly feels new, as opposed to recycled and uninspired tracks of many past releases.
With that being said, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite tracks released in the first half of 2018.
Here are 15 tracks (in no particular order) that have been on our radar during the first 6 months of 2018:
