Conscious Electronic’s Top Singles of 2020
Can 2020 be over already?
It’s a resounding thought that’s been on everyone’s mind since March when the COVID pandemic hit the United States hard. As the world was forced into isolation, social distancing, testing and tracing, and quarantine, the live music industry was likewise forced to shut down. Largescale music gatherings turned into DJ live streams as dance music artists turned to new ways of getting their music out. But somewhere along the way, “live” went on… and with it, the pandemic couldn’t stop new music from releasing. Through it all, the year gave the dance music community some pretty stellar new tracks.
From 2021 Grammy-nominated tracks like Flume and Toro y Moi’s “The Difference,” Disclosure and slowthai’s “My High,” Diplo and SIDEPIECE‘s “On My Mind,” to Porter Robinson’s sophomore album launch with “Get Your Wish,” Eric Prydz’s acclaimed “Opus” follow-up in “Nopus,” and the late i_o’s “In My Head,” there were so many notable original releases on the year that we struggled to narrow them down.
With the end of 2020 comes the dawn of a new year. It’s time to turn a new leaf, with new sounds, and look toward new genre trends developing on the near horizon. Meanwhile, Conscious Electronic has been busy ranking the year’s Top Albums, Top Breakout Artists, Top Livestreams (in place of our usual Top Breakout Festivals), and now Top Singles. Without further ado, here’s our staff picks for Top 10 Singles of 2020, along with a playlist of the Top 30 songs.
