    i have a list but not revealing it for a while. im a bit ashamed of it to be fair. not keeping my finger on the pulse as much as i would like. crowley with his american superiority complex. don't understand why we had to vote brexit when we've gotta put up with these insufferable cunts. at least you don't need to be a genius to take down german shit cos their bogs are designed so u can see the worms in yer shit from eating raw pork.

    I'll bite. According to my player, this year I listened most (>10) to

    - Kuniyuki Takahashi: Early Tape Works 1986 - 1993 Vol. 2
    - Pender Street Steppers: Pender Street Steppers
    - Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement: Ambient Black Magic
    - Thomas Köner: Daikan
    - Identified Patient: Weeshuis der Verloren Zielen

    Astute observers will note that only one of those, the first, is released in 2018. That fact surprised me, as I thought this year had quite a few interesting releases. In some order of enjoyment:

    - various artists: Bblisss
    - Ron Morelli: Disappearer
    - Les Halles: Zephyr
    - Sarah Davachi: Let Night Come on Bells End the Day
    - Silent Servant: Harm in Hand
    - Genesis: Dearly Departure
    - Donato Dozzy: Mindless Fullness (even only for the silly wordplay)
    - Seth Graham: Gasp
    - Die Orangen: Saft
    - Mutant Beat Dance: Mutant Beat Dance
    - the emo-House of DJ Healer/Ministry of Doom

    I'm thinking "favorites" of the year versus "best", tunes don't need to be great for me to enjoy and play them the most.

    that said, I loved the weirdo house on the "studio barnhus, volym 1 comp.

    hard to describe fit of body's "black box no cops" album, an Atlanta hiphop influence for sure but not really.

    some good singles by laksa.

    also dug the retro '90s house vibe on honey dijon's "the best of both worlds".

    This year was notable for getting me briefly excited about London afrobeat/trap stuff, before becoming totally bored with it as it saturated the charts.

    ok so.

    pixl jungletrain shows and noise test set. ruffneck revival dark jungle/drumfunk with heavy reeses. this scene has been going on for years. its not innovative its quite purist by 93-96 jungle standards but fuck it i can't be arsed with trying to chase the next innovation sold to us by the culture industry. chopped up amens galore.

    N Type with RUFUS! - 12th April 2018 on rinse. again purist dubstep, none of that post-dubstep shite biz. I tend not to listen to it much these days but you need that sort of fix sometimes. + scenes always have their micro innovations that aren't really visible to outsiders, something its harder for the majority middle class journalist contingent to understand on here as they are directly implicated in prescriptions which generally accord with the profit imperatives of their firms. It happens no fault of yours guv.

    Kampire - Sounds of Sonar.

    dembo riddims meets euro synths meets edits and chunky afrohouse. uganda club sounds killing it atm. the stuff on nyege nyege tapes is more mental tho, happy hardcore kampala style. especially the bamba pana release.

    Afrodeutsche - Black Forest 9th June 2018 nts. Grimey electro from the manchester soldier.

    AnD - TnDB Podcast.

    Pillmonster techno in a 90s dave clarke stylee but with a contemporary industrial influenced wideness of sound. one for the sneaking in absinthe massive at club. let's 'av it.

    Josey Rebelle - Beats in Space. chicago/detroit bits with more UK flavas.

    Alien Jams w/ Chloe Frieda & Flora Yin-Wong 22nd July 2018. avant-club sounds. I like Flora cos she knows how to get a groove going despite the off kilter rhythms and doesn't succumb to that hardstyle nonsense. Well im pretty sure she was booked/used to hang out at my mates industrial techno night so she's grounded in the culture rather than looking at this from an outsider perspective. also put in here her boilerroom although last year only just heard this year.

    That's all my mixes. grievous angel's done a few nuskool bassline ones but i haven't had time to check em out. I guess they'll go on my 'heard in 2019' list.

    Autechre - Nts Sessions 1-4.
    Xenakis - Persepolis. 2018 karlrecords reissue.
    Eli Keszler - Stadium. intricate percussive ambient jazz that sounds like source direct going for a nice relaxing sunday cuppa.
    Senyawa Sujud.
    Hailu Mergia - Lala Belu. Ethio-keyboard/organ funk. you know it will be good.
    va - African Scream Contest Vol.2 - Benin 1963-1980.
    Monae Dirty Computer.
    Gabor Lazar - unfold. warmed up to this one eventually.
    Neons Publishing - Creepin' In Memphis mixtape.
    the pusha t one. honestly probably would have put denzel curry in this slot but i had no time to hear it.
    Cardi B. prefer her gangsta bitch vol 1 mixtape tho still.
    Earle Sweatshirt.
    Massimo Toniutti - Il Museo Selvatico. (reissue.) strange gurgling low end microscopic concrete works from Italy. Sci-fi toilet concrete as me and a mate called it.
    Mark Fell Intra.
    Richard Devine - Sort\lave. Channeling the more dancefloor primed moments of Autechre Elseq 1-5.
    Heather Leigh - Throne.
    Guttersnipe My Mother the vent. not sure about this one like the no wave guys in hell but i like it, for now.
    Idris Ackamoor and the Pyramids - An Angel Fell. For all your funky Sun Ra and Weldon Irvine needs.

    Notoriously un-hip when it comes to music but I'll give it a shot:

    Indie Rock/Pop
    Album: Suuns - Felt
    Song: Voidz - Qurryus

    Album: Future/Juice WRLD - WRLD on Drugs
    Song: Quavo - Workin' Me

    Album: Janelle Monae - Dirty Computer
    Song: Billie Eilish - you should see me in a crown

    I can't believe there isn't a single electronic album or song that really stood out for me this year. Hell I'm still listening to Andy Stott's Faith in Strangers and Ben Frost's AURORA, and both have released albums since those two. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    my top 11 of 2018, in no particular order

    everything Spacemen 3 ever did, especially Perfect Prescription

    The Myth of Sisyphus

    Reading philosophy, and existentialism specifically. I'd always dabbled but I had a kind of epiphany and it became very important to me and as dumb/sophomoric as it sounds, Camus and de Beauvoir (and Kierkegaard and, somehow, Kant) basically got me thru a very difficult period in life.

    The Saga of Egil Skallagrimsson

    Kazimir Malevich - Black Sqaure and White On White

    this incredible smooth funk live version of Bonnie + Clyde

    this, and the 10 minute version of "Rapture", and avant disco not disco rap in general

    this, and early 80s wot do u call it post-disco pre-house club music like whatever Larry Levan and DJs at The Mudd Club and Danceteria played in general.

    discovering the existence of this incredible mix/video

    American, Swedish, and Finnish death metal ca. 1988-1993 or so
