Every year, XLR8R's downloads section shines a light on countless artists and tracks from across the musical spectrum. You're just as likely to stumble across a previously unreleased edit of a legendary electronic group as you are exotic beats from a rising French artist. At least one track is featured every day—barring weekends—and every month we tabulate the numbers and announce the 10 most popular tracks of the month prior. So now that February is well and truly underway, it's time to announce January's most popular tracks.
Landing in the top spot is Freerotation resident Tom Ellis with his galloping house cut "Left & Right." The Maghreban followed closely in second with "Rocky & Bullwinkle," with the weird funk stylings of MADMADMAD rounding out the top three.
