Rank #1: #17 - Enjoyed Lounge Mix
Enjoyed is based in a sleepy town called Soldridge in Hampshire. He makes electronic music; colourful, accessible and BIG.
The tunes come from a love of the House/Italo/Electro background that spawned 90s stadium dance legends Underworld and The Chemical Brothers. Some bring in more poppy song structures and touch on the SMD/LCD/HotChip sphere. Others range across through the Daniel Avery and Fort Romeau’s dancefloor gold into the more interesting end of poppy territory (Sky Ferreira, Charlie XCX).
In the last year, he’s just got better and better and received nods from Rob DaBank, Dummy, Guardian, FACT and more and Enjoyed has reworked Hot Chip, Kisses, TVOTR and Yumi Zouma and, oh yes, Mark Morrison.
He has released a number of EPs and is now working on his debut album. Enjoyed will be playing live this summer.

Rank #2: #16 - Oskar Schuster Lounge Mix
Oskar Schuster's purely instrumental music is at times reminiscent of "Amélie", evoking an atmosphere that reminds one of France, Paris, Valses and musette music. Several times referred to as "the german Yann Tiersen", his music is still very distinct, arising from a mixture of various influences including experimental electronic music (Aphex Twin, Pogo), the minimalist folk-pop of Beirut, the ethereal and mystical sounds of Sigur Rós as well as classical piano music by Robert Schumann and Frédéric Chopin. As a true self-made artist, he not only plays almost all the instruments and produces the music by himself, but also designs the artwork by himself.
Schuster's music takes the listener into a world of its own. The soft, muted sound of an old piano mixes with the noises of just as old typewriters, analogue cameras and radios while in the distance you hear a music box playing and a synthesizer creaking. However, Oskar Schuster does not merely fiddle with interesting sounds and noises but creates clearly structured pieces with catchy melodies. Melodies you seem to remember from early childhood days or long-forgotten dreams, at the same time sad and joyful, euphoric and exuberant, nostalgic, thought-provoking and always kind of melancholic.

Their track Something racked up well over 300,000 views on YouTube and led to dubstep pioneer Flux Pavilion announcing that he is "Feeling it!". Recorded and mixed in part at Angelic Studios, "Something" features a radio-ready vocal with euphoric euro-trance synths, deep wobbly bass and soul reminiscent of Stevie Wonder. Vocals provided by long-term collaborator Moonflwr and a sample of the late British philosopher Alan Watts have led to comments like, "this music gives me hope for all mankind". 'Something' is out now on WolfMoon, check it out at Azedia's website http://azedia.me.
With airplay on BBC Radio and Kiss FM, music signed to Monstercat and their first album well on its way, 2013 is looking good for Azedia.
