Here we go. It may be the first days of the New Year, but we’re still listening to our favorite albums, tracks, remixes and EPs of 2012. It was certainly an amazing year for us during which we started our radio show “OFF The Road”, we shared with you some exclusive La.Ga.Sta. mixes by Duke Dumont, Beni, Pharao Black Magic, and we dropped our free 14-track “Late Summer Compilation 2012″ with lots of fresh tunes, already downloaded by more than 20.000 vroomers! Many thanks for your support.
Today, La.Ga.Sta.’s pit stop crew finally bring you the Best of 2012 lists (albums, tracks, remixes, EPs, videos, and more). As usual, those lists are based on what we most frequently played on our car stereo. Check out the lists below in no particular order.
