This 10-disc, 191-song mix is a survey of some of the best and most notable music from 2012. In addition to this downloadable survey mix, I have also put together a similar but notably different Spotify/Rdio playlist version for BuzzFeed Music. That version does not include a lot of obscure or unofficially released tracks, and errs on the side of popular hits rather than personal favorites. (So, like, that one has “Call Me Maybe,” while this one has “Tiny Little Bows.”) It also includes music I simply had not heard before the beginning of December.

This is the 11th in the Fluxblog survey anthology series. You can still download 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011.
