BEST SONGS OF 2011: January to June

Did.You Hear The New Mixtape? – Best Songs of 2011: January to June

Here is Part 1 of the Best Tracks from 2011.  Songs that were in previous mixtapes / released throughout the year have been replaced with higher quality versions (i.e. 320kbps instead of 128s).

It’s been a great year for music, and for this website.  I want to thank you all for your comments and praise throughout the year.  Therefore, the Cover Art I made for the end of the year Mixtapes was another way to thank all the Fans of Did.You Hear The New?

Your mixes are awesome!!!


Great job guys, once gain. This tapes are exactly the kind of music I generally listen to. The torrent link isn't working though, it's actually the link for the january + february 2012 mixtape. Thks again, keep doing these great tapes


Any chance for a re-up of this? The torrent link is wrong as it downloads January+February 2012 mix and not January - June 2011 part 1. Thanks!


this entire year, ive spent just trying to listen to all this music youve dropped in my lap. youve made me aware of so many groups i would have never found before, if not way late in the game. thanks for putting in so much work on all these mixes month after month. each one is pure gold and i listen to all of the tracks on shuffle constantly. thanks again.

I have been fan of your playlists since the beginning of time and I really appreciate all the work you have done. I used to spend hours searching for music I like, but now I mostly relay on your playlists, to bring some saturation into my day to day life which I spend living in countryside with my trustful companions - two dogs. Sometimes some of electronica based songs tend to sound all the same and I would like to hear more genre and emotional diversity, but hey, It's your thing and you manage to gather about 100 songs a month, and maybe the music industry just can't keep up with you, besides, I always find that one song to share it with my morning coffee till the one that puts me to sleep at the evening. Best wishes from miles and miles away.

I came across your website by pure accident but your mixes are amazing!!! Merci all the way from Paris.


Hey there! Just wanted to say how much I appreciate you making these. Good vibes, great variety, I'm looking for excuses to make more road trips just so I can enjoy my playlists in their entirety. My only wish is that more songs were on Spotify. Maybe they should hire you! Anyways just wanted to say I really enjoy your selections. Looking forward to what you'll dish out for 2012. Thanks for sharing! partywagon, ATX


Yeah, I gotta second that. Really really appreciate all the effort you put into these. Without fail I find a new absolute favorite song or three on each mix. Big ups and thanks.


Thanks for the comment! I will continue to try and add past mixtapes to spotify.


Cheers mate. Really, really appreciate it.
