DA’s Best of the Rest: Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013
2012 was a huge year for dance music, championed by the every growing club scene in Las Vegas, an influx of national tours and festivals and the undeniable mainstream acceptance of the "EDM" sound. Only a week into the new year and 2013 is already proving to be an even bigger one for our beloved genre - made abundantly clear today as the Wynn properties have just announced their expansive residency roster for the upcoming year. From Bassnectar to David Guetta, Avicii to Skrillex, Wynn's extensive cadre of nightclubs have the sounds to satisfy the full range of spectrum of electronic music fans.
Happy 2013 Astronauts! This morning we have for you yet another 2012 rewind, this time in the form of German brothers Inpetto's monthly podcast. In this episode, the high-powered production team spends one full hour with us masterfully slicing and dicing the best of the year past. Although Inpetto's podcasts don't necessarily present material we've never heard, what makes them intriguing is the way in which they're able to layer the records into a mix that does not miss a single beat. Check out the tracklist and enjoy more below.

Dancing Astronnaut presents Best of the Rest.
Dancing Astronaut Presents, Best of the Rest featuring all the best news and anything we may have missed.
Canadian producers Sultan & Ned Shepard have been releasing dance music as far back as 2007, but only recently really gaining steam and grabbing attention with big room hits like "Walls" (featured on Tiesto's Club Life Vol. 2) and "Somebody to Love" with Dirty Vegas. Now they're back again with a free download of a new track called "Organ Donor" from their Facebook page. On this one, they strip out the poppier big room sound they've become recognized for and replace it with a sinister intro, minor chord progressions, and a heavier electro house break.
Finnish disco house producer Lenno makes his Dancing Astronaut Radio debut for Axis, Episode 020.
