(See Monkeyboxing.com – Top 10 Tracks – 2012 HERE)
It was a bit of a retro year this year and, unusually, it’s the latin soul-rock of Ghetto Brothers’ lost 1972 classic that made the biggest impact. As always, choices were made using a highly complex selection-algorithm based on how often shit got played on the MB sound system.
