    I actually couldn't build a top ten out of this year really, I've done an awful lot of thinking and I just can't narrow it down at all, some utter sickness from nearly all corners of the scene.


    Albums wise, anyone who didn't buy the Samurai Horo album and the Mosaic Volume 2 compilation is just doing it massively wrong.

    I still think last year was better though, not on the album front, but there were more stand out singles imo in 2012.

    camo & Krooked - Zeitgeist
    Various Artists - Scope (Horo)
    Various Artists - Mosaic 2 (Exit)
    Various Artists - Transit 2 (Dispatch)
    Various Artists - Way Of The Warrior 2
    Blu Mar Ten - Famous Lost Words
    Frederic Robinson - Mixed Signals (Album of the Year imo)
    Lung - Wait Less Suspense
    Rawtekk - Sprouted & Formed
    Etherwood - Etherwood
    Jubei - To Have & Not Have
    Audio - Force of Nature
    BSE - Variations on Black
    Calibre - Spill
    Alix Perez - Chroma Chords
    Bcee - Lost & Found (close 2nd for Album of the year)
    Hybrid Minds - Mountains (coming out 1st dec.)
    The Upbeats - Primitive Technique (very good aswell)

    also some other not as good albums, but with a few good tracks:

    Loadstar - Future Perfect


    i am probably still missing a lot which just shows what a strong year this was

    I'd call it a drum and bass producers take on footwork, but not really raw and syncopated enough. Regardless, it's a sick tune that I've rinsed a lot.

    - - - Updated - - -

    It would take me a long time to come up with a top 10. The only tunes I guarantee would be on it are

    Clarity - Constant
    Chimpo, Dub Phizix and Skeptical - Buzzin
    Bungle - Aura
    Rhyming in Fives - With You
