Music highlights of 2007


Well-known member

Daft Punk at Hyde Park
went with v high expectations and credit to them, they delivered a big
fat sugar fix
Slint at Koko
Lost mine and a friend's tix for this gig the last time they toured so was v happy to see them come round a second time and they left me satiated
Fridge - Barden's Boudoir
was pleasantly surprised by this
Joanna Newsom - Royal Albert Hall
first time at the RAH and great atmospheric setting for the gig
Deerhoof at Koko
fun mix of sharp and twee
Optimo at Amersham Arms
finding clubs less attractive places to spend my time but had great
time here which might have something to do with getting out of the
usual haunts
Vyner Street Festival
can't remember particular highlights but great place to spend a day
with friends enjoying music and other delights

Well La Di Bloody Da
Wittyboy ‘spanish?(also as it is tv rmx)
It's 'Spanish Rose' on Witty Boy - 'Music Hustler EP'... SICK TRACK

This year has been all about the bassline, and a bit or two of dubstep

Two tracks that stand out for me...

PALEFACE + KRISSY B - STORMY WEATHER... absolutely killer bounce business
COTTI - I DON'T GIVE A DUB.... grittyness a gwan

i'll add more as they come to mind.

Sick Boy

All about pride and egos
There is a track on Jammer's mix-tape (no1) where he keeps sending for Wiley, did I miss something there?!
Well, there is a track on Are You Dumb vol. 1 ("Jammer vs. Wiley") where they clash each other, but it features Wiley, and it's hardly serious.

polystyle desu

Memories of green
Music highlights 2007 ...

March. Death Comet Crew playing with Def Jux' El-P's troupe in France ,
an odd and funny night for all , finally meeting the guy.
Portugal fado, playing Serralves in Porto , checking out Lisbon ,
days off in Amsterdam before Rotterdam gig @ Worm.
Sept. 6 Dystopians doing the Replicants Night @ Monkeytown.
concentration , focus required to playi live sdtk for a whole (classic) movie,
twice in one night a true blast.
Can't wait to do the next one (George Luca's THX) , with Norman from Swans sitting in
Dec.12 Ike Yard invited to jam with Dennis and Sal from Liquid Liquid @ Sal's -
and having it come off pretty good actually.
Funny, funky, tribal and last jam - a touch of Factory Records' sonic.
The combinations of members will surface in next shows , next recordings 2008

Bodzin @ Bar 13
Soul Jazz' Brazil 70
some of the Thom Yorke, some of the Radiohead ( for the music , prod , group approach)

Cheers all for 2008

2007 was all about bassline for me. But also remembering and celebrating the late great Mr Wilson:

Darned cockwombles.
:D Thanks for all the recommendations....I have very little to add, save for the obvious...LCD Soundsystem, Yeasayer (2080 is a special song)... This guy's round-up is fantastic...lots of detail on genres like soca that I'm way behind on.

why is that lcd soundsystem record good i don't understand why everyone likes it, apart from each track sounds like other better records so it's handy to have a record with tracks on it together that remind you of other better records, but i thought that was whast ipod shuffle was for?
