‘Tis the season for Best-Of-The-Year lists, so at Beatport I’ve compiled a list of my favourite drum & bass tracks of 2014. Too bad the Beatport chart interface only lets you pick ten…there have been many more fine tunes to choose from this year. But curating a Best-Of list is like DJing itself, or like editing; as my dissertation advisor would say, it’s not about what’s left out, it’s about what’s left.
