“14 Tracks : The Best Of 2008 Part 3”

The third and final part of our 2008 retrospective marks a turning point for 14 tracks - from now on all the selections we feature will come zipped as a bundle so you'll no longer have to download each track individually. The tracks will also now appear in the correct running order once downloaded, tagged with the original artwork and bundled with the selection image for your playlists! Back to the selection - and it features another spread of contrasts - ranging from the 'ardkore variations of Zomby and Hate through to the intense rotations of Peter Rehberg and Trim's unrivalled narrative for Dusk & Blackdown's "The Bits". It's been an amazing year for music - here's to an even more spectacular 2009. From all of us at 14 Tracks and Boomkat - have a goodun!

Take part! Leave a comment!

What do you think of this selection?
Any suggestions?
All comments are warmly welcomed.

“Thankyou ”

Your 14 tracks concept has had the biggest impact on my listening tastes this year by a mile. It has consistently opened my ears to music I simply wouldnt be aware of and made me a major fan of modern classical (the chello and piano selections were 2 of the my favourites) as well as the many bass / dubstep variations you have brought to my attention. Bought the first 2 best of 2008 selections and I'll be getting this one when i get home. I look forward some more incredible music. Thankyou.

“Zomby”

I'm not normally a negative person, but the Zomby track on here is weeeeeeeeak. It knocks a chunk out of an otherwise very good selection.

sorry.
