Julio Bashmore 'Au Seve'
Care, consideration and caution are not always words associated with the fleeting world of dance music. DJs and promoters springing up and disappearing quicker than Eats Everything can guzzle a pint of the black stuff, it's tempting for the next pretty young thing getting hyped to high heaven to go for broke; rush out a series of half-finished tracks off their hard drive and sit back and wait for that cash-money to roll in. Not Bashmore.
Charging through big rooms
This year the British Breakthrough DJ award has gone to a producer. Actually, that might have been how we saw Funkagenda a few years ago...
To the uninitiated, Groove Armada's return to making underground house music might appear something of a change in direction. It is, of course, nothing of the sort. Andy Cato and Tom Findlay have found themselves, thanks to a solid decade of commercial success, stuffed clumsily into all manner of pigeon holes; from dance-pop to pop-dance to chill-out to stadium-dance to ragga-dance and any number of other sub genres you might care to mention.

Maya Jane Coles 'DJ-Kicks'
The meteoric Maya Jane didn't have to wait quite as long as some of the other members of the 'DJ-Kicks' alumnus society to be asked to drop a mix for the pivotal series. She joins a glittering — and eclectic — number, including Stacey Pullen, Carl Craig, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Nightmares On Wax, Andrea Parker, Playgroup, Tiga, Erlend Øye, The Glimmers, Four Tet, Hot Chip, Photek and Scuba.
Jessie Ware 'Running (Disclosure Remix)
To say Jessie Ware’s had a good year would be rather an understatement. Her diva vocals, that hark back to a golden era of house and draw comparisons with Sade and Donna Summer, have found increasing favour with the UK bass scene’s underground producers and, like Katy B before her, garnered a Mercury nomination.
If there's a label that has owned 2012, it's Hypercolour. The year's artist roster reads every bit as well on paper as it plays on a turntable; Huxley, Maya Jane Coles, Mosca, BareSkin, Tom Demac and Kris Wadsworth.
