My top tunes of 2009
Lowtec - Angstrom EP
Long, hypnotic and of uncertain mood.
dOP - Dein Verlangen; The Genius of the Crowd; Change!A Various ep
Basically, last year they could do no wrong. The unassailable charm of the French.
Starkey - Miracles Jamie Vexd remix
Pure synaesthesia, a head banging, bass worrying earworm
Brackles - LHC
Wayward synth action, more bass and a soul diva laments. This and Miracles are the dubstep fruit I've been waiting to get my teeth into.
Pangaea - Memories
Another wailing RNB lament with skippity bass. And I'm off.
Hieroglyphic Being -So much noise to be heard
Oh, baby I like it raw and Jamal delivers as usual.Machine music handed down by the gods.
Hauntologists - EP2
Loping, hermetic excursions
Bodycode -What did you say
It's the Imitation Lover dub that does it-all his distinctive sounds roughened up and leavened with melancholy
Jimi Tenor - Selfish Gene
An ageing bachelor tells it like it is.
Oni Ayhun 03
Techno steeped in the early 90s which neatly sidesteps nostalgia.Don't ask me how they do that.
My introduction to him-like Autechre discovering a big button marked JACK.
