    have to agree on survey and ghost, both have been smashing it recently!

    one from me is Impish, just released his LP silence and I am loving it!

    Shiken Hanzo has been smashing it with his signature sound. EP on Cylon + self released bandcamp EP, and he's got more tunes lined up

    Akinsa's self released an album, which I haven't even checked properly yet, he's done a few edits of classics as well, some of which have received mixed responses here :teeth:

    Kyam having a great year as well, as a newcomer he's released an EP on Foundation X, tunes on Subtle Audio, Future Thinkin, and a free album on his own bandcamp.

    Seba's had a strong year (Soul:r, Samurai, Commercial Suicide, Fokuz), but he's not exactly lesser known is he..

    Shiken Hanzo is a good shout Vydx! Bushido Code was nice but that Yari EP was awesome for me....Centipede is one of the eeriest tunes I have heard in a while.

    Haven't heard Akinsa or Kyam TBH.....will check and get back to you.

    Yes Watcha...was gonna put HW in here but I wanted to let some other people post some people. Otherwise it's just a thread of who I think is having a good year ha ha. Only the one EP on Weaponry this year tho right? Or did I miss one?
