2016 Wrap-Up: Top Remixes of 2016 #10-1

No surprise, but Kaytranada’s huge year with originals album 99.9%, also included quality remixes. The Montreal producer’s excellent takes on Rihanna’s “Kiss It Better” and Solange’s “Cranes In The Sky” were in heavy rotation, but Kay’s reinterpretation of a Janet Jackson track was once again my most played of the year.
