12. Kranium – History

When Kranium followed his breakthrough cheaters’ anthem โ€œNobody Has to Know” with the aspirational โ€œLifestyle,โ€ we weren’t sure what to make of him. This was clearly an artist who knew how to make infectious songs for the club, but he didn’t make you want to like him very much. With the underrated โ€œHistory,โ€ however, he tore down the facade, offering a more personal look into his mind. It was one of many strong tracks from the young New York artist’s debut album, Rumors, though our favorite was the Ricky Blaze-produced โ€œStamina.โ€ We’re going to leave that one for next year, though, just cause we know it’s gonna buss big in 2016! โ€”Jesse Serwer
