EUPHONICS' favourite 20 House/TECHNO tracks of 2016

This list comes with the obvious preface that we're nearly a quarter of a way through 2017, however continuing with the strong theme of nostalgia running through this site I compiled a list of my favourite House and Techno tracks from 2016.

There isn't really a strict order to the list, however, I have included my favourite track of 2016 first. Koze every single year without failure continues to amaze me with the awesome range to his production, and the slow building, hypnotically melodic remix of  Flügel's "9 Years" is a mellifluous masterpiece. Special mention also goes to the Bicep boys, the only artists to feature on this list twice, as well as a fantastic release from Brassica on their eponymous label.
