Frosty – Celsius Drop: Best of 2012

I love the opportunity for reflection. I find it a great joy to take a step back and revisit high moments of the past. For this special “Celsius Drop” episode we will be looking back over a year that included the end of the Mayan Calendar and the start of a new age. So much beautiful music emerged into existence this year and true to form my “Best of 2012″ is filled with many sounds created by dublab’s close friends and family. As usual I couldn’t fit all of my favorite songs into a single mix but these are a few sonic highlights of 2012. I am so thankful to have the opportunity to share music with you. I hope you enjoy these offerings.” – Frosty
