Those who were fortunate enough to catch Disclosure on tour last year might remember rising hip-hop star Vic Mensa, who landed the task of opening for the then budding production duo.

With no signs of cooling off, it would be advantageous to keep Vic close on your radar.

As we put the cork in the sweet bottle that was 2013, dance music can toast to the New Year after having one of her finest years yet. Dance music has been stuck into the mainstream vein like never before, and the subsequent resurgence to underground sounds have been thriving across the globe. From the deserts to the beaches, festivals both new and old continue to pack sold out audiences, and there are no signs of slowing.

On behalf of the GDD™ collective, we’d like to say thanks for riding along with us. Whether you were with us from the beginning, or have only recently stumbled across our page, we’re honored to share our taste in music with you. We’ve humbly amassed a year’s worth of tunes and tallied up our favorite DJs and producers. This has certainly been the most difficult year for selections due to the awesome amount of great tunes that dropped, which is why most of the categories have expanded. It warms our hearts to see a host of our friends in the running this year, as well as all the fresh faces that broke through with massive years.

We hope that 2013 was a prosperous one for you, and we bid you all a Happy New Year.
