moovmnt staff picks 2012

Seems like these end of the year staff picks are getting a little bit easier each year. Firstly because the amount of posts has gone down and secondly because we’ve become even more picky concerning the content of the site. A lot of you might be wondering what happened to the whole beats thing. Well, let’s just call it an evolving taste in music and let’s face it…there have only been a handful of cats that made something really worth mentioning. Credit to whomever credit is due!
