The swamps and warehouse squats, Carol City and Coco's Nightclub, South Beach and the megaclubs -- our city's music scene is the product of so many split-up, spliced, and remixed sources that any attempted overview of its output will inevitably seem insufficient and incomplete.

But here at Crossfade, we don't sweat that kind of stuff. We just charged ahead, dug into the massive stacks of music clogging our cubicles, and proceeded maniacally with our end-of-the-year listmaking. The result: An unranked, non-genre-specific rundown of Miami's best albums, EPs, and mixtapes released over the last 365 days.

So scan our picks, send us your grievances, and stay plugged into Crossfademiami.com 'cause we'll be running through two favorites per day for the next couple of weeks.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
