“Best of 2010: Part 4”

As we start 2011 we take one final look back at 2010 with the fourth and final part of our annual roundup. This selection heads off with Kevin Gorman's slow-building atmospheric crush for Ostgut, via funky syncopations courtesy of Altered Natives and Funkineven before Factory Floor provide a darkened dancefloor deviation and Ekoplekz turn things fractured and analogue in fine style. Drone movements from Yellow Swans and Skjolbrot and advanced machinations from Shed, TRG, Lone, Deadboy, Elgato and Kangding Ray finish us off proper - here's to another exciting and adventurous 12 months... Oh, and Happy new Year!

Take part! Leave a comment!

“thanks!”

well, thanks for sure! even though tastes differ as they say, I'm sure in this amount of good music everyone will be able to select what's best for him) as for me, I especially enjoyed Altered Natives' works!
