Digital High’s Top 20 Tunes Of 2014 [20 – 16]

What blog is worth a damn if it doesn’t do a superfluous countdown of the year’s top tracks? So without further ado…

20. “The One”The Knocks ft. Sneaky Sound System
      This cut didn’t receive nearly as much fanfare as smash “Classic” took in
      this summer, but “The One” was the one reaping a heavy rotation
      treatment from this guy. Released at the beginning of the year, it’s a
      Nu-disco treat with the weighty vocals of Connie Mitchell backed by her
      electro-pop brethren Sneaky Sound System looming large here.

19. “Self Control”Kate Boy
      July 2014 marked the return of Sweedish outfit Kate Boy with the release
       of “Self Control,” a throbbing cut ample in soaring synths.

18. “Best Friend”Foster The People
      2014 also saw the return of indie-pop trio Foster The People. Following
      up on 2011’s debut Torches led by breakthrough “Pumped Up Kicks,” the
      three friends released Supermodel supported by three crisp singles,
      including “Best Friend.” And just like their biggest hit to date, a darker
      context becomes apparent as an energetic and poppy production plays
      on. But that’s what makes these guys so unique and enjoyable.

17. “Never Say Never”Basement Jaxx ft. ETML
      The official lead single off of Junto, the Brixton duo’s first entry on this
      year’s countdown is a chill-house groover featuring a South London kid
      you’ll definitely be taking notice of in 2015, Elliott Marshall aka ETML. His
      laidback demeanor and polished vocals combined with an unblemished
      rhythm are what really do it for me on this one.

16. “Summer”Calvin Harris
      The supernova that is Calvin Harris dropped one of my favorite albums of
      the year with Motion. It’s chock full of high-profile features and equally
      mesmerizing beats, but it’s the lead single released way back in March
      that finds itself comfortably at 16. The 30 year old Scot takes a turn as
      vocalist again and delivers a dancefloor-filler juggernaut still vibrating
      club speakers today.
