2016 – Best of Tamil Film Music

A year of good music in Tamil, albeit less ground-breaking than years back. D. Imman’s incredible arsenal of melodies and rhythmic treats flooded listeners with a deluge of pleasant tunes. Anirudh Ravichander’s Rum stood out as the most creative and well-produced album amongst a sea of “musical” pieces, integrating reggaeton, electropop, and in general sounding like a well produced Western pop-album. Santhosh Narayanan and A. R. Rahman also delivered high quality output throughout the year.

2016 – Best of Hindi Film Music

Deccan Music 2016 for Hindi music (December 2015 to November 2016) had a number of great experimental tracks and melodies. Clinton Cerejo really burst on the scene with Jugni in early 2016 and it stayed the pick for album of the year. Perennial powerhouses Himesh Reshammiyya and Amit Trivedi dropped multiple solid albums, while Pritam and Ankit Tiwari hit home runs with their only solo albums of the year.

2016 – Best of Kannada Film Music

Songs

Incredible year for Kannada music. Have not heard this much good Kannada music in one year for a very long time. Charan Raj, B. Ajaneesh Loknath, and Arjun Janya all produced multiple fantastic albums. They were joined by Bollywood legend Ismail Darbar, the solid Anoop Seelin, and a few new composers in the Top 30 songs list. While in recent years, most Kannada songs unfortunately sounded like minor-league Telugu hero music, this year composers broke free of that mold and delivered a number of fantastic and enjoyable melodies.

2016 – Best of Telugu Film Music

Songs

Lots of melodies to choose from this year. Less heavy instrumentation, likely due to the relative absence of Ilayaraja, M. M. Keeravani, and Mani Sharma from the scene in 2016. The movies with star power inevitably had recycled mass songs, and it was the smaller films where the actual gems resided.
