Optic Echo Presents

Best Vinyl of 2018

For the seventh year in a row, we partner up with Mike Jedlicka of Optic Echo Presents, to bring you the best of vinyl releases of the year, in one continuous (vinyl-only of course) mix. This one is nearly two hours long, so there is plenty for you to dig through, and then get ready for our Best of the Year lists which we’ll begin unveiling tomorrow. So open up your hearts, and hopefully your wallets, to celebrate a year that has turned out this music, and all things considered, was not at all that bad. If somehow this is not enough, be sure to check out the last six mixes, hosted on these pages (just search). And stay tuned for another very special announcement in the life of Headphone Commute! Happy New Year!!!
