So much achieved with so little - UK Bass music distilled into a stripped down and deadly configuration.

Surely the most exciting band to have emerged in 2009 - with a typically dark take on New-Wave.

“The best of 2009 - Part 1”

Over the next few weeks we're going to bring you four selections of some of the finest music released in 2009 - taking in key tracks and hidden gems from experimental music, the ever-evolving bass-music scene, post-garage, drone, dark ambient, Techno, House, Tropical, Hip Hop and avant-pop. That's a total of 56 tracks that we think more or less defined our year, featuring longtime favourites as well as exciting new faces that were little less than a flicker of our imagination twelve months ago. We think it's been a vintage year, get stuck into this first selection and keep your eyes peeled for part two next week....

Take part! Leave a comment!

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

“Tremendous Resource”

Oh, what would I do without 14 Tracks!? The depth and breadth of these selections is really something.
