    'Vault' by Pendulum, for originality and dancefloor impact (plus blind hometown loyalty)

    Totally obvious anthem I know, but there you go.

    I could never pick just one. After scanning through all the mixes that I recorded this year, the following 12's come to mind (in relative release order):

    Fierce & Cause 4 Concern - Carrier / Burmuda
    Cause 4 Concern - Soul (Matrix & Fierce Remix) / Bedhead
    E-Sassin - Secular Motion EP
    Kiko - Ronin / Passport
    Gridlok - Horizon / The Search
    ICR - Rock The Sky / Stolen Symmetry
    Illformants - The Bizarre / Godspot
    Teebee - Life Continue / Tech G
    Bad Company - Grunge 3 (Kaos, Karl K & Jae Kennedy Remix) / Mass Hysteria (Hive Remix)
    Telemetrik - Monochrome / Nova
    Noisia - Silcon / Tomahawk (Feat. Mayhem)
    Sarah Rebdauh - Staticky (Klute Remix) / Polar - Turtleneck (Klute Remix)

    Best LP would probably be Ed Rush & Optical - The Original Dr. Shade (even though I didn't like half of the tracks). It was a pretty average year so far as LPs go.

    Most consistent producer would be Gridlok. Loads of quality releases on a bunch of labels. I think I spent more money on him than anyone else this year.

    Some of my faves from the year:

    Klute - Take A Breath
    Breakage - So Vain
    D Kay & Lee - Manipulate The Universe
    Loxy & Keaton - Judgement Night
    Paradox & Alaska - Shinjuku
    Myster Mason - Ruff Rugged & Raw

    Probably Take A Breath or So Vain, 2 classic tunes that would work on any dancefloor yet got completely ignored by a lot of DJs :thumbsup:

    I'd say Hive 'Neo' - film score production, suspenseful arrangement, and devastating subs.

    And, as a bonus, a stateside producer! Big up Hive!

    i know its quite a retarded question, but if u had to pick just one, what would it be? :)

    so probably vault is gonna be this years tune, i aint too fond of it myself, but i sure as hell do like all the other pendulum tunes that are out there (mindeye, voyager, another planet, back 2 u, spiral etc.) :beers:

    In the underground scene, so far it's keiretsu's "Fahrenheit 451."

    The upcoming Soundclash may change this, though. ;)

    Pendulum- Vault
    Hive- Neo
    Rawhill Cru- Mo Fire ( Andy C & Fresh rmx ) I still can't put this one away :gslayer:
