“14 tracks: The Best of 2014 Part One”

We kick off our 2014 survey with 14 crucial mutations that twyst the lines of grime, trance and footwork to nexx level results. Lars T C F Holdhus proved to be one of this year's most exciting, intriguing artists, and fronts this selection with the cryptography-inspired, gyroscopic post-hardstyle sweep of '54 C6 ...' beside DJ B.Boy's slo-mo bullet from Lisbon, 'Moh Cota' and a couple of other Latinate zingers from the brilliant NMO and Arca. Lorenzo Senni also made our year with his stunning 'Superimpositions' LP, from which we've included 'PointillisticT', alongside Matthewdavid's heady soul spinner 'In My World'. It was a vintage annum for instrumental grime, epitomised in Mumdance's ridiculous 'Don't Get Lemon' construction with Spyro for Rinse, and equally with Bloom's shocking 'Cld Grip' or the staggered grime-techno of Air Max '97. From Chicago, DJ Rashad (R.I.P) and DJ Earl's footwork productions for Hyperdub knocked us sideways, and the uniquely incisive rhythm deconstructions of Ueno Masaaki, Gábor Lázár and Fis offer sharply contrasting, new rhythm solutions. Join us for part two next week where we'll focus on other stylistic areas of excellence released over the last twelve months.
