The variety of 2004 was staggering (provided you ignored the music press).
The following 50 tracks probably cover 20 genres, with artists dotted all over Europe & America. I was particularly impressed with the German output (all forms of electronica), which says alot about their thriving micro-label scene. It's interesting, and perhaps ominous (for us in the UK) that a label such as Kompakt can double in size every 2 years.
2004, I salute you!?!
