2018 is almost in the rearview mirror–so take a few moments to relive some of its best musical moments with our favorite tracks! 


Another year has come and gone–but fortunately for us, we’ll still have the music we listened to all year long to remember the best moments of 2018 even though they’ve gone into the history books once and for all. With a multitude of incredible albums out this year, it might be easy to forget that there were a ton of phenomenal singles released, too, but fear not–we’ve collected our staff’s favorite tracks from the year gone by and assembled them into a playlist for your listening pleasure.

From huge originals like FISHER‘s “Losing It” and deadmau5‘s “Monophobia” to transcendent remixes by the likes of Tinlicker, ALPHA 9, Justin Martin, and Spencer Brown, to tracks you might never have even heard of before, there was no shortage of great music filling our ears (and our hearts) in 2018. So put on a good pair of headphones and press play–and let us take you on a ride through the delightful landscape of some of 2018’s best music!

Erin has been listening to electronic music on and off since the early 2000s, which is when trance music captured her heart and soul. Over the years, she has expanded into a number of other styles and genres, especially techno and house. Originally from Chicago, she spent the better part of the last decade seeking out any electronic music she could find, and traveled the length of the country in search of some incredible moments at festivals like EDC, TomorrowWorld, and the Dirtybird Campout. Having since settled in Denver, she focuses her energies primarily on the house and techno scene around town and traveling to mountain and west coast festivals whenever possible.
