That Was The Year That Was

December 19th, 2012

Made plans yet for New Year’s? Why not spend it with bpm:tv?

To celebrate a watershed year for EDM in North America, we’ve lined up a series of specials showcasing the most exciting and important sounds of 2012. We’re gonna be the New Year’s destination for anyone who wants to hear the biggest hits and relive the most memorable moments of the year that was.

Here’s what’s in store:

>THE HOT 20 OF 2012
Airs: New Year’s Eve from 4 pm to 10 pm ET | New Year’s Day from 10 am to 4 pm, repeats starting 12 Midnight ET
bpm:tv’s Hot 20 Dance Chart is the definitive weekly guide to the dance tracks rocking clubs around the world. This two-part special recaps the best of the year’s best: the monster hits that scaled the upper reaches of the Hot 20 in 2012, from David Guetta’s anthemic “Titanium,” to PSY’s inescapable “Gangnam Style,” to Swedish House Mafia’s swan song “Don’t You Worry Child.”

Airs: New Year’s Eve from 10 pm to 1 am ET, repeats from 1 am to 4 am ET
bpm:tv bids farewell to 2012 with a three-hour commercial-free dance mix featuring the year’s biggest club hits, plus a sprinkling of last year’s smashes, and all-time classics from the likes of Daft Punk and Kool & The Gang.

>THE TOP 100 DJs of 2012
Airs: New Year’s Day from 4 pm to Midnight ET
This four-part special reviews the results of this year’s Top 100 DJs poll, the authoritative global ranking of electronic dance music’s most popular and successful artists, and highlights career-defining tracks by every major performer on the list, from Avicii to Zedd.

Don’t forget that bpm:tv is in free preview right now on Videotron and Eastlink, so if you’re a customer of either service, you can tune in to catch bpm:tv free of charge throughout the holidays. You’ll find us at channel 166 on Videotron, and channel 177 on Eastlink.

Happy holidays!
