Dubzoo’s Favorite Tracks of 2016

While 2016 was. . . . an emotional year, the music that came from it played off of those emotions in the best of ways. Political change brought out the worst in us, and the passing of many beloved artists and sports figures brought us even lower.

The world seems more divided than ever doesn’t it?

Maybe in one sense, but if you ask us at Dubzoo, the music community is closer than it has been in years. The underground dance music scene is a tight knit group of music lovers, and top 40 dance tracks are starting to please even the stone cold music snobs. DIY events are bringing independent music to levels its never been to, and old school flavors are bringing their way back into this new age sound. So many great album drops this year that it’s hard to keep track of.

I can’t imagine getting through this year without all of the new music I’ve heard. So here’s to a better 2017, and to the music that got us through each of 2016’s 365 days.
