Flashback To October: Charts

11.03.10 Posted in Blog by

While I noticed that some music journalists are already busy preparing their ‘best-music-of-the-year’ lists, I’d like to start with an October chart, as it’s only November 3rd! The first in what could become a tradition.

In no particular order, my five favorite tracks of October 2010:

1 Shed – 44A (Hardwax Forever!) (Ostgut Ton CD14)

My favorite track from the brilliant album The Traveller by Berlin’s fines Shed.

2 Axel Boman – Purple Drank (Pampa Records 04)

A great moody release on dj Koze’s imprint Pampa Records.

3 Gold Panda – India Lately (Ghostly International 123)

A great track from the album Lucky Shiner. Reminds me a bit of Caribou and Four Tet.

4 Recloose – Get There Tonight (Rush Hour Recordings 112-12-1)

A re-release on Amsterdam’s finest Rush Hour label, originally released in 1999 but still sounding fresh.

5 Mau – Erown Byes (Rimini 01)

A slow building disco edit, released as a white label vinyl that I luckily discovered at ADE10. [iPad/iPhone user and can’t see the embedded SoundCloud player above? Tap here!]
