Music of 2009

I’m just going to put some lists (NOT IN ORDER) out there, music I've been feelin over the past year.

These are things that are released or that I got my hands on in 2009. I play a lot of tracks that are older, and at some point I should shout ot those stalwarts in the collection, but I'm trying to stick to a theme here.

Folks whose music I love and rocked the dancefloor unstoppably, who I learned about or gained a new love for in 2009:
  1. Schlachthofbronx – Oh man, perfect party music
  2. Taal Mala – out of Canada, making some of my favorite dancefloor movers for the dubstep style
  3. Grievous Angel - some of my favorite takes on UK Funky come from him
  4. Ku Bo - continuing with that witchy minimal tropical shuffle sound
  5. Kush Arora - Surya Dub crew, forging his own sound in several directions at once
  6. Sully (hoorah for the return of the 2step!)
  7. Akira Kiteshi
  8. Bunji Garlin - one of the most fun vocalists out of the caribbean.
  9. Kill Frenzy - I think it's Belgium does Juke?
  10. Soundcloud discoveries: Flore, Gizmode, Ghost Hack, Sa’bat sound, Dmoefunk, blnd!
