2008 Top Ten

Posted by AIC • Dec 23, 2008


In no particular order, here are ten new 12“s from 2008 that we reckon should be bought by all.

The Third Man – Circadian Rhythms
A sci-fi electro stomper booming throughout the galaxies.

Mr. Pauli – Biersmijt E.P.
MST 009
Just squeezing into 2008, head straight for the high energy of ‘Le Crunch’. Brings back fond memories of Mr. Pauli’s drum rolls at the CBS Necroparty.

Kruton – Nitro Hassle
Twisted, bouncy techno that builds and builds all the way to the finish. A favourite off the Dissident label this year.

Muravchix / Tommy Walker 3 / Spruxxx / Casionova – Wings Of Destiny
Cyber Dance 003
The Cyber Dance label is on a roll at the moment. Four equally fine and different trips here. Plenty more where this came from in 2009 methinks.

passEnger – The Funk / The Fall
These soulful tracks inspired us to book passEnger to come play for us in February 2009. Also carrying the now typical mark of deep techno tunes – coloured vinyl.

Various – Jahtarian Dubbers Vol. 1
JTR 01
2008 has been a great year for the Jahtari label with worldwide recognition. This record (Jahtari’s first vinyl release) offers up a slow-mo digital mishmash unlike anything else around.

Various – Computer Incarnations For World Peace II
A brilliant E.P. with Maurice Fulton’s remix of ‘Rollmottle – Take a Break’ being the stand out track. Pure cosmic funk.

Wireman – Armour E.P.
PN 04
Glasgow’s Wireman launches his long overdue first release. This is heavyweight.

Larry Heard – 25 Years From Alpha
Only just out but my word this is one smooth composition, 15 minutes of bliss.

Various – Don’t You Know? E.P.
Four raw warehouse tracks on Buzz Goree’s label. The two charging Xenogears contributions on this are ace.
