Aside from the copious amounts of music that you may get bombarded with through various channels, there is still a ton of genuinely incredible hidden talent to find. With soundcloud becoming the behemoth it is for sharing and discovering music, it’s even easier to find artists you would otherwise never hear.

Forming any kind of year end best of list is pretty difficult, especially considering all the aforementioned music we’ve come across. From Toronto to India, these are some of the exceptional artists we’ve been following over the past year, with albums that have consistently played over our speakers since their release. We hope you enjoy these as much as we have.
