It’s that time of year again where we narrow the roughly 1,530 tracks that have made it into our weekly playlists down to no more than 50.

It’s a sad fact that most tracks are forgettable, some should never have been committed to airwaves but there are a precious few make it all worthwhile – the ones that make your skin fizz with the thrill of finding something unique, something loveable or just something you can’t stop dancing around to.

So here, is a selection (in no particular order) of the music that has gotten us through 2018.
