****************************************
♫Liner Notes♫: Welcome to the only official Media Monarchy mixtape this year: “Dance Apocalyptic” and the Best of 2013! As we just noted on the year’s final episode of @PumpUpThaVolume (our weekly new music podcast), some think 2013 was just terrible. But as for music, this was as good a year as any other. I know that a lot of the songs I loved this year just floored me and will be with me forever. The ‘play count’ on some of these songs in my iTunes is crazy! This two hour batch of my favorite music from this year could’ve been thrice as long, but I kept whittling it down to the snappiest, most representative tracks. What you hold in your head is a collection of some of the most exciting sounds around… Enjoy and share with peace and love!
