Albums may get all of the love from year-end lists, but a ton of amazing music is consistently being released in a much shorter format. An EP is usually compiled when an artist is looking to showcase their potential, or to test the waters for a future full-length project. The mini collection of songs, when done right, can land into our daily rotation right beside our favourite LPs. It seems wrong to reflect upon the year in music, without shining some much-deserved light onto the rappers, singers, and producers who brought us some amazing tuneage via extended plays. From syrupy R&B, to post-punk and deep house, here are the best Canadian EPs of 2016.
