“Beats of Rage how you feeeliiiiinnnn??” – I continued the habit of slurring that over the mic at every Beats of Rage this year. Soz.
Anyway how ARE you feeling? You’ll be feeling better after these lot. This is my 2015 chart, a bunch of tunes I’ve been playing all year at Beats of Rage parties as well as a couple of guest DJ spots I’ve had the pleasure of filling at Wickerman Festival and Concréte.
I’ll admit, I’ve not been super ‘on it’ when it comes to finding new music this year – but I surprised myself when I had a little look back, there’s been loads of good stuff.
Anyway, have a go on these and maybe let me know what you think over here on Facebook.
D.I.M. – Roket
Glad to see D.I.M. back on it with this simple grower, the groove gets me going every time.
Jungle – Julia (Soulwax RMX)
The Dewaele brothers do it again.
Worthy – Handle It (Mason Remix)
Unexpected tune of the year.
Jensen Interceptor – Body Work
Tiga Vs Boys Noize – 100 (Dub)
These 2 were always going to be a strong combo.
Bjarki – I Wanna Go Bang
Not my usual cup of tea but it infiltrated a few great sets recently, I grew to love it.
Klanken – Twee
2manyDJs set up their own record label this year, Deewee. TBF, seems like that should have happened ages ago!
Justice – On’n’On (FATHER Remix)
Not heard much about this ridiculous 12 minute remix of a 4 year old tune being released this year. Good though innit?
Djedjotronic feat Miss Kittin – Pleasure and Pain
Miss Kittin’s still got it.
Denney – On & On (Justin Robertson’s Deadstock 33s Remix)
Justin Robertson’s been killing it in 2015.
Housemeister – Dinamite
A Made Up Sound – Syrinx
Discovered this in a Teki Latex mix. Love that guy.
GENER8ION + M.I.A. – The New International Sound Pt. II
Cracking video, and a bit of a grower.
Riton – Rinse & Repeat Ft. Kah-Lo
Riton breaks the mould again with this vocal hook-led track. Not technically released this year as it’s slated for early 2016. But it’s been all over the radio already, so it counts right?
Die Verboten – E40
The Krautrock-inspired supergroup of Riton, 2many DJs and Fergadelic finally released their 2007 project this year. Expect new music in 2031.
The Chemical Brothers – EML Ritual
The Chemical Brothers continued being decent this year. Not a bad innings!
Justin Robertson’s Deadstock 33s – Everything Is Turbulence
And, as a bonus, here’s the full album from Justin Robertson’s Deadstock 33s. All fire. Can’t wait for the next one, fingers crossed for a 2016 release.
