Since we are approaching the end of 2016 and people love lists right? LOL I thought i would make a list of the top ten LPs that i purchased and did not sell back Also my list is different because i include not only releases from 2016. I will go back as far s i chose going with the idea that 2016 they cam into my consciousness and started to effect how i programmed, composed or improvised/thought about music or just cranked up in the car or put on while coding or relaxing with the cats. I hope my pre-amble is not too abstract but here goes
1.) Demdike Stare - Test Pressings - i loved these and was overjoyed when they released the CD that included about 6 or seven unreleased ones. Wonderland in my opinion is not their best though it's new and needs a few more listens.
2.) Grischa Lictenburger - Everything by this guy is addictive glitch beats but moody love his work.
3.) FKA TWIGS - Everything. she does is cool pop/r&B glitch? Loving it.
4.) Raime- Yally, Tooth etc..
Tooth is amazing but boomkat chose this as their first in this set of editions with good reason
5.) Second Woman- more addictive glith(y) electro i cannot stop spinning
6.) Exoteric Continent - more wonderful electronic on Anomia label, just really cool musc
7.) Akkord - on Houndstooth - just killer all their stuff is banging
8.) Shifted - minimal electronic dance the new record is just as good as the older stuff....
9.) Driftmachine - Ambient lovingtons done really well
10) Ena - on Samurai Music -- Just killer Tokyo/Berlin awesomeness
i hope this wasn't too boring just wanted to share what made 2016 cool for me.
