EDMTunes Top Tracks Of 2018 Part 1 (21-40)
The year 2018 is coming to a close, and it brought us loads of amazing music. It goes without saying that a top ten list would not suffice, nor would a top twenty. With that being said, today we bring you the first part in a two part series of articles for the best tracks of 2018. Today’s list will focus on the latter half of our top selections, and we think you are going to love it. The list comes from a poll held between all of our writers & editors, so expect part one, and two to be stacked. Lets get to it after the jump.
You can check out our Top Albums here.
40. Mathame – Nothing Around Us Ft. Lyke
Mathame have managed to find a unique sound with their use of vocal processing, and ‘Nothing Around Us‘ is the perfect example of this. It rose to immense popularity as the Tale of Us closing track for almost the entire year, and it still gives us chills every time.
39. Magnificence & Seth Hills – Fire
One of the few new tracks dropped during the epic Swedish House Mafia, Magnificence’s Fire had quite the year.
38. Armin van Buuren feat. Sam Martin – Wild Wild Son
Another smash hit from Armin, this time, Wild Wild Son is a dedication to his son, Remy. Featuring vocals from Sam Martin, this is another stellar production from the Armada honcho. The original is a touching dedication, but the club mix is a straight banger. Both are worth checking out.
37. Dynoro feat. Gigi D’Agostino – In My Mind
Featuring a vocal sample made famous by an Axwell remix, Dynoro struck gold with his track ‘In My Mind‘.
36. i_o – Not Techno
i_o‘s track ‘Not Techno’ is a nice jab at the Techno elitist, and all those who claim that “he’s not even techno”. He manages to do this while still bringing his signature Techno sound.
35. Andrew Bayer feat. Alison May – Open End Resource (In My Next Life Mix)
Andrew Bayer puts a club spin on his track Open End Resource off of his In My Last Life album. The whole ‘In My Next Life’ series is worth checking out.
34. Excision & Illenium – Gold (Stupid Love) feat. Shallows
33. Armin van Buuren vs Shapov – Our Origin
Armin van Buuren and Shapov teamed up again to give us this incredibly uplifting trance gem. AvB first debuted Our Origin at Tomorrowland.
32. NWYR – Wormhole
W&W’s trance project NWYR has been a monster success. Wormhole was one of NWYR’s most anticipated tracks, and if you give it a listen, you’ll understand why.
31. Magnificence – Cobra
What was originally mistaken as a new Swedish House Mafia ID by many, Cobra ended up being the debut track of the Dutch Duo Magnificence. A true banger, you don’t want to miss this one.
30. ilan Bluestone Feat. Giuseppe De Luca – Let Me Know
Previously, Giuseppe De Luca and Bluestone collaborated on ‘Frozen Ground’ and ‘Bigger Than Love’ which both became hits. Let Me Know is no different, check it out.
29. Armin van Buuren – Therapy (feat. James Newman)
2018 was a great year for Armin, as he put out loads of tunes. Therapy is no different. Add James Newman to the mix, and you’ve got a smash hit.
28. Spencer Brown – Arps n Crafts
Originally written in 2017, Spencer wrote 95% of “Arps n Crafts” in a single hour. Initially seen as an experiment he never intended to release, it found its way onto his album ‘The Illusion Of Perfect‘.
27. CamelPhat & Cristoph ft. Jem Cooke – Breathe
‘Breathe’ was first premiered on dance floors at Hï Ibiza this summer. Not too many tunes get this treatment, but after giving this one a listen, it is plain to see why. A true dance tune, we just can’t get enough.
26. Elephante – Come Back For You (feat. Matluck)
Elephante dropped his Glass Mansion EP earlier this year, and with it some of his previous works. ‘Come Back For You‘ features vocals from Matluck, some sweet guitar licks, and an awesome bass-line. The drop alone is worth checking out.
25. Enrico Sangiuliano – Multicellular
Enrico Sangiuliano makes our list with his track ‘Multicellular’. If you saw any techno or tech-trance set during the Summer of 2018 you probably heard Multicellular. This was only one of 3 bangers from his Biomorph album.
24. Alesso – Remedy
Remedy was one of Alesso’s most anticipated tracks of 2018, and if you look back, it definitely had the hype to go with it. The track is what he dubbed as being ‘Future Progressive‘.
23. Calvin Harris – One Kiss Ft. Dua Lipa
One Kiss marked Calvin Harris’ return to Dance Music, and it was a good one at that. It features Dua Lipa on the vocals making it a dance-floor ready anthem.
22. Axwell – Nobody Else
Coming in hot is Axwell‘s ‘Nobody Else‘. The Axtone honcho dug deep into his arsenal and blessed us with a nostalgic dance track reminiscent of his earlier works.
