The Nocturnal Times Top Tracks of 2015 (Halfway to 2016 Edition)



Winnowing down the most influential, powerful, and most popular tracks each year is no easy task. When the music is as inspiring, emotional, and captivating, as it was this year, it becomes all the more difficult to narrow down the selection. As we’re already halfway to 2016, The Nocturnal Times has complied a playlist of our favorite tracks of 2015 (thus far).


Analyzing weekly music charts, countless radio shows, and DJ sets for the latest and greatest across all electronic dance music (EDM) sub-genres, we set to capture the true essence of dance music this year.


Some of the selections have made waves as radio-smashes, while others made strictly for the clubs. Some are festival main stage ready, while some cater to the underground. Some possess melodic breakdowns, while others are bass-heavy. Some are uplifting and euphoric, while some offer breathtaking remixes. Listed in alphabetical order, here are the tracks that made the cut for The Nocturnal Times Top Tracks of 2015 (Halfway to 2016 Edition).
