Bestest of 2010

Shit, this 2010 went by like drunk horses over hills. It’s time to look back and reminisce about all those tunes that caught my heart over the last year. There’s plenty more than just 10 of course, kinda split into different categories (I won’t necessarily bump the hardest dancefloor banger while I’m taking a shower or changing a light bulb, and at the same time, I most likely won’t force my dreamy iPod faves onto a packed club that’s hungry for bangers).

However, with these 10 I’m trying to sum up the ones I’ve personally been appreciating most throughout 2010.

1. Joy Orbison – So derobe

(The Shrew Would Have Cushioned The Blow 12″/EP, Aus Records)

2. James BlakeĀ  – CMYK

(CMYK EP, R&S Records)

3. Lone – Once in a while

(Once in a while 12″, Werk Discs)

4. Krystal Klear – Tried for your love (Hudson Mohawke remix)

(Tried for your love 12″, All City Records)

5. I Blame Coco ft. Robyn – Caesar (Diplo remix)


6. Girl Unit – IRL

(IRL EP, Night Slugs)

7. Tame Impala – Solitude is bliss

(Innerspeaker LP, Modular Recordings)

8. Caribou – Odessa

(Swim LP, Merge Records)

9. Tobacco – Creepy phone calls

(Maniac Meat LP, Anticon)

10. The Black Keys – Next girl

(Brothers LP, Nonsuch)

Diplo X Pomp & Clout

It’s been a hot minute since I heard the last mixtape that was rotationworthy enough to be bumpin’ on my system non-stop. Dip dawg kicks off Brooklyn-based multimedia graphic collective Pomp & Clout‘s new mix series by delivering 60 minutes jam-packed with 60s rock&roll, 70s deep soul, 80s acid rock, 90s punk rock by the likes of The Sonics, The Silver Apples, Rotary Connection, Ken Nordine, The Hard-ons and even a Portuguese version of The Rolling Stones’ “Paint It Black”. No tracklisting revealed, but highly enjoyable from the first to the very last minute.
