To bring in 2014, Beathau5 staff have compiled our favourite releases from the past year. Along with what our staff have chosen, we have gathered Best Of 2013 lists from popular electronic sites and blogs and put them in collages for you to check out.

2013 was a big year for electronic music! We saw genres like and trance take on new sounds while techno, ambient/chillout, and drum.and.bass had quality releases.

Each staff member was given the task of selecting a single release that would be shown as their favourite of the entire year. After much time and speculation, here are the Beathau5 Best of 2013! These releases will be set to freeleech and can be viewed all together in the new Staff Pick Collage.
