As 2013 nears its end, we continue our tradition of yearly staff picks summing up our favorite music from the 12 months past. This year is very special as we’ve extended our list makers to include Giant Step fam outside of the staff itself; many thanks to Maiya Norton, Nai Palm (Hiatus Kaiyote), Natasha Diggs, Rich Medina, and DJ Spinna for contributing their takes!

Amongst the most popular favorites were Disclosure‘s Settle, Rhye‘s Woman, James Blake‘s Overgrown, and Hiatus Kaiyote‘s Tawk Tomahawk. Dig into the complete lists and let us know your faves as well!

New Track: Jessie Ware – “Imagine It Was Us”


Premiering on UK radio late last week, Jessie Ware has dropped her most recent single, “Imagine It Was Us.” The danceable track is a whirly fantasy of pop-friendly 80s inspired soul.

The song will be released alongside a remix with A$AP Rocky for “Wildest Moments” on the US version of Devotion on April 16.
