When Drake sampled Sonic the Hedgehog? Lorde releasing Melodrama? Kanye West’s 17 minute onstage rant? Name your favourite moment in music this year. Win a vinyl record of your choice.



Update: Submissions are closed. About to announce a winner! Hang tight!

Personally I had a lot of fun when we both leaked Gorillaz and Taylor Swift’s track lists which resulted in bizarre PR for the site and Swift fans going absolute mad. Or the surreal moment seeing your own music getting leak reported. Or the hilarious, seemingly eternal feud between Liam and Noel. Maybe even discovering I kind of like Kesha’s music.

There’s been a lot of horrible moments of loss and revelations this year. Let’s end this year with something positive. What’s your favorite moment in music this year? An album release, a surprise, a reveal or maybe even a WTF moment as a gif.

Name you favorite moment below. One of you will win an album of your choice, vinyl or digital copy. You need to be signed in in order for me to contact the winner. Contest ends on December 15th!

Good luck!

    My favorite moment was when Eminem confirmed he had a new album and all his creative marketing to announce the album and build the hype for it. It was very creative and interesting

    I’d say that this year has been a good year for music especially for new artists. Facebook has been a way for most artists to update their followers with concert schedules and releases. However, they can also use it for promoting music. Lewis Capaldi decided to give away free CDs to those who leave comments answering why they want it. I did and got one! From Europe all the way to Asia, I got them. A lot of notable acts for me this year, the birth of Noah Kahan (Young Blood), albums/EP from Zak Abel, Leon, Aquilo, Rex Orange County, Gentle Bones, and an awesome 2nd album from Odesza. Odesza’s cool music video where he asked their instagram followers to send a short clip of their travel videos ended up so well edited that I have shared it so much to other friends too.

    the best moment in music is when propagandhi released their long-awaited full-length Victory lap. It’s the best thing to happen in music in The Last 5 Years. Which is coincidentally the last time they put out a record. This band gives me hope for music but also helps me realize the inevitable downfall of this industry and the world it was built on. Propagandhi are raw, honest and Incredibly motherfuking talented. There is supported by celebrities, journalist and musicians worldwide. They are my favorite band on the planet. They are the best band on the planet. They are the nicest guys within the punk rock scene that I have ever met. 0 egos and 0 attitudes. After every show they get off stage and talk to their fans, take photos and share stories. These guys have been at it for almost as long as I’ve been alive. They are in the only band that I can truly say this, every single record is better than the last. They are what every band should aspire to be.

    I think best moment of the year was the day when The War On Drugs released their new album “A Deeper Understanding”.. Because I think this is one the best album of the year and I feel that will be one of the best album of my life

    My favorite moments were listening to Lorde’s “Melodrama” for the first time and the surprise release of Brand New’s long-awaited fifth album “Science Fiction”.
    These records are also my two favorites of 2017

    The day I realized how great Sminos album Blkswn was. Was going through a tough time and stumbled back across it. It was so relatable and uplifting, really helped me through some stuff.

    Honestly, exactly what the example was. I loved when “Drake” sampled Sonic the Hedgehog for KMT because Cameron Pasquale and Ness were the producers on that track. And I went to high school with Cameron Pasquale. That kid has worked extremely hard and I couldn’t have been more proud, pleased, and excited that somebody i know, made it big time!

    All the gay rap this year was my moment. This was the year of homoerotic rap music. Nobody tell me different (just f*cking Saturation era, bitch an tylers f*cking sc*m f*ck emotion f*cker boy)
    But in generall the fact that so many rappers dropped their most mellow sounding but on the other side most intimate and emotional super ultra album. All the time this year. All this magical gay sounding hip hop music this year made my year. For sure
