Best of 2017

Our Top 10 Albums

Oh 2017. Much like a Taco Bell fart, you hung around way too long. While humanity can collectively agree that 2017 was a generally weird year, it wasn't all Russian hackers and celebrity diddlers; in fact, one aspect of 2017 was downright great: the music!

Beats and Bytes: LaunchPad Pro

The Launchpad Pro is a staple in any serious producers arsenal. With this handy dandy Abelton controller, hot rhythms can be constructed, molar-shaking drops can be built, and ideas can flourish into pulse-pounding, feet-moving jams. But have you found that your samples have been severely lacking in the dope department? Have your drops been less than filthy? Are your tracks far from lit, fam? Worry not: the professionals at Novation are here to get your Launchpad game back on track.

Top 5 Albums of 2016

Ah, 2016. Like a wayward puck at a hockey game, you caught us totally unaware and left us feeling battered, bruised, and more than a little violated. While 2016 might have been the year we collectively decided that mourning a gorilla was the height of comedy, it wasn’t all bad. Case in point: The music! The radical, game changing, awe inspiring, joy inducing music. And what is a year of music without a smarmy look back at the year that was, formatted for your reading pleasure in an easy to understand top 10 list? I’m Evan with Unique Squared! Join me as I make totally unqualified judgements against a year of albums and use a lifetime of musical snobbery to compile my top 5 albums of 2016.
