“Best of 2013: Part One”

Once again split over four parts, our 2013 round-up commences with 14 unique pieces of electronic music you really need to know about. They range from mind-bending avant-garde systems to rugged house and clinical electro, taking in the cutting edge of UK grime, grid-dissolving Kiwi D&B and styles that haven't been christened yet. Joane Skyler's playfully fractal jungle jaunt, 'Foam', has provided us no end of fun this year, whilst the advanced structures of Rashad Becker's 'Traditional Music Of Notional Species Vol.1' and the psychoacoustic techniques of Xopher Davidson & Zbigniew Karkowski have triggered the sort of rare sensations we return to over and again. Equally, artists such as Marina Rosenfeld, Wanda Group and Alex Gray's D/P/I have deeply infected our listening habits with their intra-dimensional probings, and we've been very excited about the time-and-space-bending contortions of A Made Up Sound, FIS, Mordant Music and Logos, who're all taking UK-rooted dance music to stranger, nexx levels. The emergent vapour trails of Everglade's hyper-clean 'Area Login' have given us a tantalising glimpse of possible futures, whilst Dopplereffekt and Jay Daniel have kept that unique Detroit sound burning bright...

“Traditional Music wins”

I always look forward to your round up of sounds from across the music spectrum. Rashad Becker gets my vote.
