We’re only half-way through 2013 but so much has already happened, especially on the music scene. Artists like Justin Timberlake, Kanye West and Daft Punk released new albums after years in hiatus, and the airwaves have enjoyed quite an explosion of genres ranging from synth-pop, indie, hip-hop and many more.
