2016 has been a mother of a year in terms of decreasing the outstanding music artists we have on this planet.  The likes of David Bowie, Prince, Leonard Cohen and more have been taken from us and with it goes every track that they’ll never give us again.

On the plus side, 2016 has actually been a very good year for some rising artists hitting their stride and getting mainstream attention. Saying that, there have also been some rising new talent in the mix this year and I am pretty certain that a good portion of our 55 best of 2016 tracks probably have not seen the light of day on other blogs and sites.  We always try to do things a littler different at YMR.

There are some gem tracks and artists here that will easily make it onto our YMR Watchlist for 2017.  Keep your eyes and ears peeled and in the meantime get this played why don’t you!?!
