SPIN’s 20 Best Dance Albums of 2012

Last season’s post-dubstep murmurs and moombahton grooves have ceded the spotlight to the class of 2012. This year’s best dance albums move with the frenetic jostle of footwork, the slam-dance frenzy of festival dubstep’s newest mutations, the drilling rattle of the EBM revival, the hypnotic pulse of Cuban drums, and the “I-can’t-believe-it’s-called-trap-rave” of trap rave. Thank5!
