DA’s Best of the Rest: Wednesday July 18, 2012
Well, “hump day” is finally almost over, meaning we’re that much closer to the weekend, but of course today was as jam-packed as ever. Today was marked by a few new releases, our continuation of the best moments of 2012 (so far), and even a pretty s
nazzy contest. What we didn’t get to tell you about were things like Sharam’s new album, a cool video interview with Eric Prydz, a new episode of R3hab’s podcast, and more.
