Resident Advisor Top 50 Tracks of 2012 –
With so many RA lists to choose from it wasn't easy. This is what I've gone for, purely because while all the best tunes of the last 12 months (bar a few of course) were there, the RA track of the year was something very unexpected. Don't get me wrong though, it is an absolute tune.
Rotten Tomatoes 'Best Of' 2012 –
Everyone watches films, and a lot of those people then post ratings and reviews onto Rotten Tomatoes. It's the peoples film database, and it's pretty reliable.

Best RA Podcast of 2012 –
This isn't so much a list, more a personal opinion of what was the best mix I listened to in the last 12 months. Joy Orbison's RA mix has been played in this office about 10 times. That's a lot if, in your office, you listen to 8 hours of house/techno/dubstep/DnB/garage a day. Listen to this before the world ends in a few days.

I knew I'd have to put another RA list in here. This is without a doubt the most professionally compiled list of DJs around the globe in the order that makes the most sense. I'm sorry DJMag but how David Guetta even features on your lists it just cray.

A nice finisher to this list. Keep your eyes peeled for these names over the next 12 months. That's if we're all still here.
