NHK'Koyxeи - Dance Classics Vol.1 / Dance Classics Vol.2
Disorientating and deceptive beats wrapped in addictive machine sounds. Released by the label of the 2012, PAN, these albums are a fitting number 1 in a year when twisted, skewed, forward-thinking dance music dominated my listening.
Ricardo Villalobos - Dependent And Happy
A spellbinding first proper album in 6 years from the microhouse master. I have no idea how he makes electronic music sound so incredibly organic, but through a million and one tiny gradations, these tracks evolve from simple, linear blossoms into full-on, sensory-overload.rainforests.
