Optic Echo Presents

Best Vinyl of 2012

In case our Best of 2012 lists are not enough, here’s a 70+ minute mix for you of the best releases of the year. That’s right, we continue the celebration of music from 2012 with this special vinyl-only mix from Mike Jedlicka of Optic Echo radio. This has now become an annual tradition on Headphone Commute – last year Jedlicka created his Best of 2011 vinyl mix which has received a massive positive response from our listeners and readers. We hope you enjoy!
