- Would have to agree with everyone, it has been a particularly good
year for music.
Best album of the year for me was obviously 'I Choose Noise' but a
close second was an album by a band called Union of Knives
called 'Violence and Birdsong' which is superb - good beats, good
vocals, some Peter Hook style bass and even some strings chucked in
for good measure!
And the highlight of the year was catching Hybrid live at the
Warehouse Project - best performance i've seen by Hybrid and a quality
- My favs for the year are (no particular order)
01. General Midi Never gonna stop the show (WOW Mix)track
02. Dylan Rhymes - Superstar (elite force mix)track
03. Pankaj - Together track
04. Roger Sanchez - Lost EP ( love the singers voice)
05. The Love Rats - Your Women EP (great lyrics)
06. Atomic Hooligan - The Remixes EP (blim remix is just an awesome
07. Lexi - Come on EP (DOwnright dirty and Lexi has a voice that can
pull it off)
08. Santos - Home sweet Home LP (This was his year_
09. Soul Revenger-CLose your mind 2nd track, Samples Chocalate Icecream
10. Dopamine - Outside the box EP. Pwowerful
11. The Flash Brothers House of FLash LP (an excellent house album,
the first 25 minutes are classic)
12. 2 Bit Pie LP(The boys from fluke still know how to write and play)
13. Otur - Pepperbox Hill LP (More electronic than house through my
veins is the stand-out track)
14. X-Press 2 Makeshift Feelgood LP (1st song sounds like a kenny
roger song. Makes for an interesting and entertaining album.
15. Beckers - Switch Mixes EP (In your face progressive)
16. Charlotte Church - Call my Name (Steve Mac classic mix piano
track)(If you like piano this is your song of the year)
17. Jinx - the tonk ep (in your face)
18, Miami Ice - Better than perfect ep (just a beautiful song based
on Miami VIce but better the vocals are hypnotic)
19. Misfilter vs INfluenza - Want it all ep (In your face don't come
any better than this)
20. Def Inc 50K ep (Surprise not to see this one on anyones list.
Sounds like Hybrid in one of their progressive moods)
21. SI Begg - Noodles ep (Si begg keeps coming out with strange but
very good music that breaks new gound.
22. Phil Barry - Make a Move ep 2nd track Cause and Effect (skip the
first track go to Cause and Effect play loud enjoy)
23. Peace Division - CLub Therapy track Ep (the lyrics are so true)
24. Peace Division - Blacklight Sleeze track ep ( I read somewhere
that a 45 year old women (a poet) did the lyrics. Very sad but true.
25. Rasmus Faber feat Melo - Get over miami redits. ep (great regtime
26. Benny Benassi - Whos your Daddy ep video edit track (the video is
good along with the song pure sex)
27. Madonna - I Love NY (Thin White Duke Mix)track. JLC has a talent
for mixing and turns a mundane song into a viberant danceable hard
28. Overklash - Take your hands off me track. Great Lyrics just like
29. Slacker - Let me stay 3rd track on ep. Mindbending bass, a
classic groove makes this one a dancefloor burner.
30. Hybrid - Sleepwalking - snother Hybrid classic.
Sorry neither Hybrid or BT LPs made the list, these above selections
have a lot more heart in their songs, something lacking in the Hybrid
and BT LPs which both seem to drone on forever.(my opinion) Nothing
new that I have not heard before, just wish these two would play more
progressive music instead of this laid-back crap. I found a studio
version of sleepwalking (Track 15) which is the best song by Hybrid
since From a Distance. Sleepwalking should have been on the album
along with other in your face progressive tunes. But all the above 30
are progressive, have a lot of soul and the mixing and sound
production is excellent. There is so much good music out there. 2006
was a bumper crop this year.
- You can get the remixes (inc Blim remix of Dreaming) from
http://www.4gmusic.net which is linked to by the boys site. £4.49 + £2
postage is pretty good value. I'm having credit card issues on the site at
the moment but will try again later.
- Probably my favourite album of last year was helios' eingya. Glad
someone else heard it.
