Who were your top 5 to 10 breakthrough producers of 2008? Brookes Brothers - Not much to say about them. They've been smashing it for a couple years now, but just seem to get stronger with every release. DC Breaks - Had two of my favourite 12's of the year, Romper / Mankind on Viper and Taken / Come Closer on Ram. Expect major things from them in the future. Metrik - Definitely took his sound to the next level. Technicolour was definitely one of my top tunes of the year. Look out for some big tunes on the new Viper album in '09. Pure NC-17 - These guys are quietly getting signed to every label out there with tunes out/forthcoming on Mac II, Frequency, Viper, DSCI4, and Sudden Def, amongst others. Along with support from the likes of Andy C, Ed Rush & Optical, and Futurebound, they are a force to be reckoned with in '09 for dark techy Virus-style sounds. Telemetrik - My Lightyear LP was f'n class. Nothing else to say. Brilliant, brilliant album Icicle - Don't need to tell DOA anything about him. Big year from him on Shogun, Ram, etc. InsideInfo - He invented "fun-tech". A true pioneer But seriously some class tunes from him in '08 with huge releases on Viper, Breed, and Critical. "Skyhook" was deffo a top 10 tune of the year for me. Dirtyphonics - Really made a breakthrough with their crazy live setup and the release of "French Fuck". Got big backing from Shimon on AudioPorn Records and will be on a big EP coming out in the new year. Expect big things.
