Some Remarks About 2012

We're already past 2012 for a few months now, so it feels a bit pointless making my "best-of" list. Instead, I'd just like to list a few albums that haven't really received lots of attention. The more "popular" albums I liked are therefore excluded. Disclaimer: position on this list has a standard deviation of about 5, my rating something like 0.5.
1Hidden Orchestra
Archipelago


I'm surprised this album ended up being on so many 2012 lists, but of course I'm very pleased about it. Some people read my review, started recc'ing the album to other people and so on. Reccomended for fans of jazzy/trippy/electronic and the like. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dK2imCwfC3w
2Maya Jane Coles
Easier to Hide


I can't really put my finger on it, but I just really love this little EP. It just works well, I guess. Deep House release of the year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dk_h1CSTwI
3DjRum
Watermark/The Darkest Hour Is Just Before Dawn


DjRum does dubstep, but also so much more. His debut album will be released TOMORROW. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIqmWZE943A http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPu-bh4kTK4
4L'Orange
The Mad Writer


Jazzy/trippy/nostalgic hip-hop. stream: http://lorangeproductions.com/album/the-mad-writer-2 video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDIdhbRv9n0
5Poppy Ackroyd
Escapement


Sputnik says this was released in 2013, but not in Europe I guess. Poppy Ackroyd is a member of Hidden Orchestra, her solo debut is some beautiful, dreamy modern classical music. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KD3yRyj_I4M http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUGadC3yf80
6ASC
Out of Sync


Techno? DnB? Ambient? Great! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1My0lfD7bI
7Ulrich Schnauss and ASC
77


Delicate video game soundtracks. No this doesn't make sense, but should it? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCVbjUcksN4
8Proxima
Lie Detection/Brainstem


Ask Jash if you want more like this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9nh26QpQVE
9Mala
Stand Against War


Same. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWUfLtmq-Bw
10iNTRiKet
The Woods


Ok, this was hyped like ****, but it's good. http://intriket.bandcamp.com/
11Holly Herndon
Movement


Herndon is working on a PhD in electronic music and you can notice it: sometimes this album becomes a bit too... "intellectual". But she definitely has interesting and fresh ideas + she is strong defender of the personality of electronic music. Cool lady. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frmJKaPT5U8
12Ikonika
I Make Lists


Metallic and fun dubstep. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpcLjpu3-1g
13SX
Arche


"Dream pop? Man, I heard Beach House and it's so BORING". Yes, but SX is way catchier. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUzfzxRAsdY
14Balthazar
Rats


This has like more reviews than ratings. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFBc1yQfIzQ
15Chvrches
The Mother We Share


Is this band really special? Not really, but they can make insanely catchy, high-quality electropop. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j73ZGLKu9Sc
16iTAL tEK
Nebula Dance


Not as good as some previous work, great nonetheless. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfo7m4W4f5I
17Goose
Control Control Control


EBM with Guitars? Alt Rock with electronics? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9h6Esgk7u_o
18Kate Simko
Kabuki Drop


Chicago's Kate Simko has quite an impressive back catalog, both in Minimal Techno as Deep House. But for now, her latest EP is great enough. Deep House done well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qr_7IWda91w
19Lindstrom
Smalhans


Fun. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-cuzRnFi_eQ
20Nina Kraviz
Nina Kraviz


The third lady making Deep House on this list. Not everything on this album is great, but when I'm in the rigt mood... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-OTl-rP1-M
