It’s been quite some time since I put a chart out even though 2015 has been a great year for music. This list is in no particular order and doesn’t necessarily reflect the “best” tracks that came out–this is more like a sampler of tunes that I really liked of various styles and it was hard to pick just 10.
Mutual Attraction – Lost Tape [Nous]
Nous popped up as some under-the-radar label based out of Greece, with a particularly strong run of initial releases that largely became very hard to find unless you pounced right away. This smoker’s delight of a track appeared on one of the rare Ethos sampler releases. I don’t know of any other tracks by this artist or their identity.
SW. – Reminder Part Three B1 [Sued]
Gorgeous deep groovy amazingness on Sued. Just check this.
Pépé Bradock – Abul Abbas [Atavisme]
Pepe Bradock has a truly deranged imagination. This EP was apparently composed at a recent session of the Red Bull Music Academy. A party jam with all kinds of weird shit in it. I love the elephants.
Route 8 – The sunrise in her eyes [Lobster Theremin]
Lobster Theremin is one of my new favorite labels. It was hard to choose one tune with so many good releases this year but I opted for this melancholy sunrise jam.
Melchior Productions Ltd. – Liquid Moves [Aspect Music]
I have no idea what the dude is saying but this is track is minimal sexiness. Melchior has been doing this kind of stuff for years. He had some nice tunes on Perlon this year too, check out ‘Meditation 6′.
DJ QU – Sweaty One
DJ Qu played my favorite DJ set at Decibel and released a bunch of great records this year. I opted to include this track as I ended up playing it quite a bit. On a loud system the bits of sub-bass that come in to complement the sassy synths sound awesome, and the drums are straight out of the sewer.
Post Scriptum – Human Timescales [Ostgut Ton]
Bleepy Jeff Mills-inspired techno that I feel is a cut above the rest with its attention to detail in the production. I don’t know much about this producer other than this track (which appeared on Function’s Berghain mix) and the eponymous LP which appeared on Infrastructure New York (also highly recommended if you like a spacy, intricate take on techno)
Markus Suckut – Turn On [Mosaic]
Very very simple track with Timothy Leary samples that appeared on Steve O’Sullivan’s limited Mosaic Red series. Very very effective and sounds great on a loud system.
Oлег Буянов – Wet Paint [ГОСТ ЗВУК]
Found this digging through the bins at Vinyl Dreams in SF. Since it’s a plain stamped white label with Cyrillic characters all over it I just have to give it a listen. Tough, rugged stuff, I love playing this.
Patricia – Mercury In Retrograde
Patricia (aka Max Ravitz) stands out in the lo-fi techno/house scene. He does not have that many releases, but this record and the releases on LIES XMAS and Opal Tapes last year really did it for me. Mellow stuff for walking around in dense fog..
