It’s almost over, and while we can’t quite believe there are only two weeks left in 2014, this has certainly been one of the most exciting years in Glasgow to date. From festivals to clubs, bars to basements, the city’s electronic heart was beating twice as fast this year and the music has been exceptional. In this month’s radio show we take a look back at some of the standout tracks of the last twelve months, with everything from house to hip hop represented.

Selecting music from the likes of Inkke, MermaidS, Mia Dora and Rustie, consider this a cross section of Glasgow’s electronic spectrum and the sounds which have made their way across the globe. We of course couldn’t fit in everything (the show could easily have been twice as long), but hopefully this will remind you just why 2014 was so special…
