2012 Electronic Eps

What I've heard that I can think of, ranked. Tons of good shit and plenty I rstill need to get.
1Burial
Kindred


Obviously.
2L-Vis 1990
Club Constructions Vol. 1


Insanity. This probably won't appeal to people who aren't already pretty familiar with what this label is about. Hard tracks designed to make you move, fuck everything else.
3DjRum
Watermark/The Darkest Hour Is Just Before Dawn


This A-side is the slickest thumping groove.
4TNGHT
TNGHT


Not worth trying to put into words how cool this sounds, just check it out.
5Girl Unit
Club Rez


A nice sound for Girl Unit. Just solid as fuck cool-sounding and hard-hitting futuristic club music.
6Dusk and Blackdown
High Road


The Burial feature is obviously sick but these dudes utilize that dark garage vibe in a similarly awesome way on their own.
7A Made Up Sound
Archive II


Likin this a lot more than 2562. Bassline in "Hang Up" is great.
8Blawan
Long Distance Open Water Worker


Blawan just doing his thing. Hits hard and "6 to 6 Lick" is insane and funky as all hell even for him. Hit me up if you have an interest in this because it's vinyl only and the first DLs I came across for this all sounded like they were recorded through a pillow.
9Mosca
Eva Mendes


Starting to seem like this guy can do no wrong.
10George FitzGerald
Child


Cannot pick a favorite track off this, all rule. Not much to say about it either, just 4 pretty straightforward but very well done house tunes.
11V.I.V.E.K
Out Of Reach


Deep Medi Musik putting out some of the most interesting stuff I've heard from them awhile this year. Mala's new stuff might be pretty cool too. Meanwhile Coki's putting out complete shit. Dubby Soursop is terrible, and if Don't Get It Twisted 2 is half as bad as the first it will blow.
12Disclosure
The Face


Just lots of fun.
13Kastle
Stay Forever


VERY fun if you can overlook a bit of cheese and some lack of originality.
14Swindle
Do The Jazz


What?? A big, loud dubstep release that's actually good and original in 2012??
15Submerse
They Always Come Back


Can't decide what to make of the opening track, but the title track is the best I've heard from submerse.
16Gemmy
Tales of the Deep


This is good shit, I'd probably like it more if he'd branch out a bit. It's all getting a bit too familiar but definitely a really solid listen.
17Kahn
Margeaux


A good listen, still like his track "Illy" more though.
18Jack Sparrow
Afraid Of Me/Good Old Days


Maybe it's because I'm a sucker for deep dubstep tunes with some isolated classy jazz instrumentation, and while it's no "Girl From Codeine City", the A-side is all class. B-side doesn't do a ton for me but it's a fine track.
19Pariah [UK]
Rift


I was pretty confused about this release on first listen after the other stuff I've heard from this guy, and it's still no safehouses but it's grown on me a lot, these are some nice atmospheric tracks.
20 Fantastic Mr Fox
San'en


All about Speak Nuh on here, but a cool and simple danceable sound all around.
21Untold
Change In A Dynamic Environment 1


I dig the way these tracks build a lot, but I'm not sure it's enough to make this thing all that interesting. A cool listen though. Not sure I've got the motivation to check the 2nd one.
