Hottest of 2017

14 Jan 2018 | News

This summer on the show, we went through some of the hottest songs that we played on Definition Radio in 2017.  Narrowed down by your votes, and Internet streaming play counts.

The artist appearing the most is Sintax.the.Terrific in Deepspace5, Midcentury Modern, and a colab with (someone who appeared twice) Jon Corbin.

From Australia, the artist appearing on this list the most is Marksman Lloyd.  Though throughout the year we suspect the Australian we heard on the show the most was the colab king ... Izzy!
