Annie Mac Annie Mac Presents 2012 I've had such a great time selecting, compiling and mixing this latest album. I've come at it from a Club DJ perspective and consequently, more than any other year, the AMP 2012 Compilation is a direct reflection of my DJ sets. On CD 1 you'll find all the tunes i've been playing out over the year. There is a nod to moombahton and trap, some drum and bass, some hip hop and lots of big house tunes from the likes of Madeon, Porter Robinson and Calvin Harris. CD 2 is more deep, reflecting my never ending obsession with house and garage music! I am so happy to have some soul and hip hop on there too from 3 of my favourite artists of the year Drake, Frank Ocean and A$AP Rocky. Last but not least, for the first time, we have commissioned new and original music for the compilation courtesy of young Irish producer MMOTHS, super-talented Liverpool producer, and DJ, Melé, and girl-boy R&B loving duo AlunaGeorge. - Annie Mac Listen to a mix of some of the songs: Island Records CD
