Real Life : 2012 Favorites


Every year around this time we join journalists, DJs and music bloggers in looking back at the year of music and having some fun selecting the sounds that moved us the most. DJ Fundi scratched out a list of 20 or so albums that we enjoyed the most, and then crafted up a mix over 2 nights featuring his favorite tracks from those records. We hope you enjoy the flavors and this celebration of great music, songwriting, grooves & hooks!
