Best Dance Songs of 2015 (First Half)

Alternate playlist on Spotify
The time has come to sift through all my dance charts from the first half of 2015 and pare it down to the best of the best—the songs that that are the most unique, adventurous, boundary-pushing, and have kept on giving month after month. Like last year, this year seems to be devoid of any one central theme. Many genres are represented. Electronic dance music seems to be as splintered and disparate as ever (and that's how it should be).

Check the SoundCloud playlist above for easy consumption or an abridged Spotify playlist if you prefer.

Burial - "Fostercare"

I tend to refrain from posting the drearier, more headphone-reserved side of dubstep, but a new Burial track is not to be slept on. Untrue is an album I still come back to regularly nearly two years after its release.

Burial's label, Hyperdub, will be putting out its first full length album release since Untrue on October 7th. It's a two-disc compilation celebrating the label's five years of existence. The first disc consists entirely of exclusive new material while the second picks tracks from the back catalog. It's titled 5, and you can pre-order it here.

"Fostercare" is Burial's new one from the comp. Here's a CD-quality stream. (It's not a YouTube rip.) See what you think. UPDATE: Hyperdub has requested that I remove the stream. Very sorry.


Pre-order 5: Five Years of Hyperdub.
