* Lorn – Ask The Dust (ninja tune, 2012) / massive & dark IDM
; Yppah – Eighty One (ninja tune, 2012)
Contemporary classical & ambient compositions:
* Max Richter Vivaldi – The Four Seasons (Deutsche Grammophon, 2012)
* The Cinematic Orchestra – The Cinematic Orchestra presents In Motion #1 (2012)
; bersarin quartett – ii (denovali, 2012)
