010
Jónsi & Alex
Riceboy Sleeps
[Parlophone]
Genre: ambient


Jónsi & Alex made beautiful ambient album that sounds like Sigur Rós' Takk... Intro - but a little bit longer.

My Track Choice: Daníell In The Sea, Boy 1904

009
Telefon Tel Aviv
Immolate Yourself
[BPitch Control]
Genre: new wave, synth pop, leftfield


Telefon Tel Aviv's new sound brings us one of the finest 80's feeling in 21st century.

My Track Choice: Helen Of Troy

008
Ethernet
144 Pulsations of Light
[Kranky]
Genre: ambient, dub techno, drone


Well... Just try this rarity...

My Track Choice: Vaporous

007
Tim Hecker
An Imaginary Country
[Kranky]
Genre: ambient, drone, abstract


Just another Tim Hecker's great album....

My Track Choice: 100 Years Ago / 200 Years Ago, Borderlands

006
Moderat
Moderat
[BPitch Control]
Genre: electronica, techno, dubstep, electro


Modeselektor and Apparat made one of the most stunning electronic albums of the year mixing sounds of techno, dubstep, and Apparat's typical emotronic sounds.

My Track Choice: Seamonkey, Slow Match, Out Of Sight, Rusty Nails

005
Intrusion
The Seduction Of Silence
[echospace [detroit]]
Genre: dub techno, ambient, dub


With Yagya's "Rigning" "The Seduction Of Silence" is the best dub techno thing released this year, essential classic in its genre!

My Track Choice: Seduction, Little Angel

004
Jesse Somfay
A Catch In The Voice
[Archipel]
Genre: techno, idm, ambient


Don't know how to describe this album... Good Morning Strange Light, Folding Ghosts Into Origami Stars, Algonquin, Amo Alucinor - these tracks describe all about that stuff.

My Track Choice: ditto

003
Milieu
Colortone
[Milieu Music]
Genre: idm, ambient, downtempo


If you're missing Boards Of Canada just try this! I'm a kid in the 80's again.

My Track Choice: Color The Waves, Sun Dress, Cropduster

002
Yagya
Rigning
[Sending Orbs]
Genre: dub techno, ambient


Third Yagya's album brings us the same amazing cold-warm feeling from Iceland as on "Will I Dream During The Process?" an "Rhythm Of Snow".

My Track Choice: Rigning Níu, Rigning Tíu

AND #1 OF 2009 IS:

Absolutely the best deep house and classic house thing I've heard in a long long time, and my favourite record of the year. House music not to dance but to feel. As Boomkat's reviewers says: Essential Purchase, Killer, Immense, Absolutely stunning ;)

001
DJ Sprinkles
Midtown 120 Blues
[Mule Musiq]
Genre: deep house


My Track Choice: All tracks, but the most: Grand Central, Pt. I (Deep Into The Bowel Of House)

Happy New Year and lots of goooooood sounds in 2010!

    Great list there, guy, especially 100-51.

  • ffxi_frohike

    My heavens... what a list. Thanks for compiling this!

    28 Dic 2009, 19:25
  • matis_keynell

    niektóre wybory podobne do moich, choć moja lista będzie krótsza (~20 miejsc), sporej ilości płyt nie znam a więc muszę sprawdzić ps. nie ma niektórych moich faworytów

    28 Dic 2009, 20:16
  • Nachkebia

    I love Midtown 120 Blues

    28 Dic 2009, 20:50
  • daydream_set

    Epic list! I was hoping as I scrolled down that Yagya would be near the top. I almost couldn't believe it when I saw it at the prominent #2 position! I'll have to check out DJ Sprinkles now for sure.

    29 Dic 2009, 7:15
  • blisschord

    Hey thanks a lot for the #3 slot! I'm really glad you liked Colortone so much! Funny also, in my own top 20 list, Midtown 120 Blues was #1 as well...

    29 Dic 2009, 7:23
  • BurkaBurka

    wow thats is some list! was kinda surprized to not see Nosaj Thing - Drift in the top100 though!

    You are a madman.

  • cihansondogac

    lots of interesting albums here. and i'm totally down with your number one. but i wonder how you ordered 100 albums one after another. yes i'm talking about ranking any 2 adjacent albums in the list, did you grade them like pf or what

    30 Dic 2009, 6:50
  • copula

    Oh, Great! Thanks!

    31 Dic 2009, 10:16
  • yulquen

    I wish I'd listened to this many albums this year... Interesting list - will defo check some of these out. Think Tim Hecker might be my favourite of the year, although two albums I thought I might find in this list, Ben Frost and Vladislav Delay's respective latest releases push it close. They're worth a listen if you haven't already.

  • szymonasty

    swietna lista, ale pierwsze miejsce dla sprinklesa - kurcze, kontrowersyjna decyzja. tak samo moderat- nie rozumiem ochow i achow - nie dorownuje dokonaniom wczesnego apparata. poza tym propsy same!

    1 Ene 2010, 23:57
