 BY OCCUPY THE DISCO / RU BHATT 

It's that time of the year again when we look back and list our favorite tracks of the year.  Given the plethora of amazing music on the disco and house scene this year, this was no easy task. Nevertheless below is a list (in descending order) of my favorite tracks that I played while spinning at our Occupy The Disco parties here in New York. 

While it's actually the Bixel Boys remix of Kiesza's acclaimed lead single, 'Hideaway' that holds the #10 spot on my list (listen after the jump), I'd be remiss to not also include the fantastic music video that accompanied the original cut. Whether it's the rhythm that hooked you, or the chorus of ooh's and aahs, 'Hideaway's brilliance lies in it's simplicty; which is echoed in the music video. It's a refreshing to watch in a world where the opulence of Gaga and Beyoncé seem to reign.

Listen to the Bixel Boys Remix of 'Hideaway' and the rest of Ru's top 10  AFTER THE JUMP...

Röyksopp Delivers Stunning 'Monument' Remix (with Robyn), New Track 'Skulls': VIDEO

Robyn

Röyksopp and Robyn's austere, haunting collaboration "Monument", delivered earlier this year, is given a remix called "The Inevitable End Version" by the duo, who say their upcoming album (with the same name as the remix) will be their last.

The video for the remix features the Norwegian pair performing in concert with Robyn.

Said the duo: "We feel like this is a goodbye to the traditional album format. In our consecutive run of albums, we have been able to say what we want to say and do what we want to do with the LP. We're not going to stop making music, but the album format as such, this is the last thing from us... "

This remixed version of the track will be a part of it, as will "Skulls", a new track which they previewed yesterday as well.

Check it all out, AFTER THE JUMP...

Robyn and Röyksopp's 'Monument' Video is a Stunning, Hypnotic, 2014 Space Odyssey: WATCH

Robyn

Robyn and Röyksopp exist in an otherworldly dimension in their new "Monument" video directed by Max Vitali and choreographed by Jefta Van Dinther which sees the trio on a lit up platter traveling through a dimensional, sometimes star-filled darkness.

Robyn calls the clip the "pretentious" representation of an "inner journey" into "the physicality of your body."

A Revolution is in the Making in Röyksopp and Robyn's 'Do It Again' Video: WATCH

Doitagain

The new music video for Röyksopp and Robyn's collaboration "Do It Again" was directed by Danish filmmaker Martin de Thurah and takes place in an unspecified era where revolution is stirring.

Said Thurah: "'Do It Again' feels like it's an unstoppable pop mantra of something out of hand. A spiralling hypnotic maelstrom. The video touches 'our hearts' desires': deep passions; revolutions full of hope and excitement; a dream of freedom; obsession; the ecstasy and escapism; the darkness. And it ends in a mix of violence and laughter, freedom and the loss of free will. All of this somehow ends on a note of hope through struggle. Something worth fighting for. Do it again."
