It’s a wrap. 2015 is done, and it may just have been Glasgow’s biggest year to date. From essential albums by Hudson Mohawke, Auntie Flo and Petrichor to rising stars like Denis Sulta and Jasper James, there’s been no shortage of amazing music. And that’s perhaps no surprise as local labels continue to foster fresh talent; giants like Soma Records, Optimo Music, LuckyMe and Numbers represent every corner of the dancefloor, while Dixon Avenue Basement Jams lead a pack of emerging imprints such as West End Communications and Astral Black, not to mention Sub Club’s new label Nautilus Rising. It’s all happening and we can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store.

First, though, we need to reflect on the last twelve months. Our final radio show of 2015 features some of the biggest tracks of the year from a wide range of artists. Expect to hear standout cuts from the likes of Rustie, Dressin Red, The Burrell Connection, Nightwave and Grum, ranging from melodic techno to sleazy disco and pumped-up trap. Listening back, we think you’ll agree that 2015 has been an exceptional year for electronic music, and astonishing just how much diversity and quality one city can produce.
