The Hype Machine Logo

The Hype Machine has released its list of the 50 most blogged and favourited songs of the year, and as always, it’s a pretty great list. Some strong trends definitely emerged over the past year. The teaming o alternative bands and singers with house acts was all over – Florence Welch with Calvin Harris, Major Lazer with Amber of the Dirty Projectors, Felix Cartal with Maja Ivarsson all being examples. This was the year EDM get thrown into the mainstream – with Calvin Harris on the radio, and university students everywhere outfitting their wardrobes with various shades of neon. We also saw artists that first gained steam on the blog community spawning massive pop hits, from Gotye to Fun. Dubstep kept chugging on – with Nero and Adventure Club both gracing this list. A new face of rap emerged – and showed in the internet age you don’t have to have an album to make waves with your singles. And lastly, the chill was a strong force – with Poolside, Grimes, and Ellie Goulding covering The Weeknd all making waves. Check the full list below.
