Digital High’s Top 20 Tunes Of 2015 [15 – 11]

DH’s Top 20 Of 2015 [20-16]:
20. “Love Me”The 1975
19. “Home”Madeon
18. “Can’t Feel My Face”The Weekend
17. “17”Cyrus ft. Packy
16. “The Real”Busty and The Bass

15. “Number One”Tuxedo

      Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One, fans of the raunchy classic “Ain’t No
      Fun”
and members of the beatmaking super-duo Tuxedo, flipped the
      sample game on its head this year when they dropped “Number One.”
      Puzzled by the lack of clarity on just who Snoop and friends were
      borrowing from, the two amigos went and created their very own version
      of what might have been. The end result is a full length funk jewel that’s
      contemporary yet reminiscent of a sound suited for decades passed.




14. “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)”Jamie xx ft. Young Thug & Popcaan

      Longtime producer Jamie xx [he of The xx fame] finally saw the release of
      his debut album In Colour this year. It was a triumph in electro sound
      making, held in high regards by fans and critics alike. Among the myriad
      of highlights is the Young Thug & Popcaan assisted “I Know There’s
      Gonna Be (Good Times),”
a simplistic drum and bass groover that oozes
      a sublime sunny season appeal.



13. “Heaven Only Knows”Towkio ft. Chance The Rapper, Lido, & Eryn Allen Kane

      Between Kanye, Common, Lupe Fiasco, and a whole host of MC’s,
      Chicago hip hop saw a prolonged dominance in 2015. Joining that
      esteemed list at no. 13 is Towkio and the soulful joint “Heaven Only
      Knows.”
Off of the Avondale lyricist’s debut .Wav Theory, this cut boasts
      an all-star lineup and a strong jazz-pop production that beautifully
      incorporates an ever-uplifting sample of John Legend’s “Heaven”.




12. “Omen”Disclosure ft. Sam Smith

      No year end roundup is complete without at least one entry devoted to
      Disclosure. They proved once again that they are masters of their craft
      with the release of their sophomore album Caracal. It was a smashing
      success thanks to its formidable house stylings and who’s who of A-list
      features. Lead single “Omen” set the pace, seeing the dream team that
      was responsible for 2012’s breakout hit “Latch” back together once more.
      Vocalist Sam Smith and songwriter Jimmy Napes linked back up with the
      Lawrence brothers and dropped one of the years most gorgeous cuts.



11. “Name & Number”Shift K3Y

      Shift K3Y was a new name to me in 2015, but he quickly became a fave
      with his 90’s pop revival “Name & Number.” Featuring dancefloor filling
      percussion patterns and melodic throwback harmonies this track wore
      out my repeat button in the early parts of this past Spring.
