    Bout the time of the year for this post, been a big year with shit loads of heavy releases and some very decent artists that have broken through with big big sounds.

    1) Jubei - I know he's by no means a new artist but his releases in the last year have been some of my favourites. I honestly see Jubei being spoken about with the same regard as Break and Commix if he isn't already, really can't wait to see what he's bringing next year.

    2) Enei - Don't know a lot about this guy, but his collab with Eastcolours on Critical is gonna set January off, hopefully be seeing some more big releases throughout the year.

    3) Joe Syntax - His last two releases, 'Sentinels' and particularly 'Slingshot' I really loved. He's successfully combining that dark liquid sound with dancefloor vibes, I don't think it'll be long before people really start to notice him.

    4) Hybris - Who didn't love 'The Cleaner'? It's one tune I still can't get enough of! With another banger 'The Elusive 101' and an EP coming on Noisia's Invisible label already penned for next year, the only way I can see is up for him.

    5) Octane and DLR - It's hard to hear a techy mix at the moment that doesn't include a track by these guys. With tracks like 'Jazz Dub', 'The Jazz Club' and 'Walrus' prime examples of an out of the box approach to a sound most producers are going for, I can see the guys rising as other producers begin to stagnate.

    6) Amoss - I can see a big 2011 for these two, their track 'Glurg Monster' is another favourite of mine, tight percussion with a wicked evil bassline really set it off. There are more forthcoming tunes on their mixes for Broken Audio, the Buried Audio and Abstractions Podcasts.

    7) Seba - This guy is fast becoming one of my favourite producers 'The Joy (Face to Face)' has been one of my favourite tracks to listen to this year. He has the ability to blend those nice dark sounds and then turn around and make the most soulful melodic tracks I've heard. I would really like to hear more liquid from him in the new year.




    I will add a couple more to this and posts peoples soundclouds etc under names but my net has decided to die so much I can barely load a page, so an edit will come later.

    Enei - That kid has got some amazing music on the go. Cracker & Danger Dance will be my first purchase of the new year for sure. Big 12

    Culture Shock - The music speaks for itself. Too much about to drop next year

    I want to see much much much much much much much much much much more commix. There production never fails to utterly amaze me, heard that nightlife track i have you on my mates system the other day was so vibes. Obviously i realize they're not new and are tried and tested, but this year there was an epic lack of their production due to the launch of recall to mind. When i'm talking about releases i mean vinyl

    My Main 3 are:
    S.P.Y, i can't want to see what else is going to be produced next year, hes come out with some absolute heart stomping dancefloor killers of recent, not to mention before that aswell. I mean the likes of 'Xenomorph' and 'Stormtrooper'... nomnomnom

    Jubei 100%, NVNG was big and he carried on the standard with his Distrust EP, no doubt he will follow through with much more in the year to come. Looking forward to it

    Enei, personally hadn't heard much production from him until recently (can't believe he went under my radar for so long) but definately listening out for more. One Chance smashed it on Nightlife 5

    Plus: Wilkinson, Octane & DLR, Need For Mirrors, Rockwell & Siren. Just listened to
    'The Cleaner' and love it, after reading this blog @alz i am definately going to be looking out for Hybris in the year to come

    All the Temah guys, (Offkey Raiden, outrage etc.) and as always Break & Icicle. Some new Fracture & Neptune stuff is sounding good too.

    Fred v and grafix...those 2 are just waiting to be pulled permanently to someone like hospital.

    Culture shock...hes been around for some time now but i have always wanted more from him and it looks like he is going to deliver this year. His tunes are all completely different but instantly recognisable as being one of his tunes....thats not easy!

    D-Bridge's latest tweet made me go weak at the knees.

    'iPod is full of Forthcoming Exit LP's to get me through this trip. Mosaic Vol 1, They Live, Loxy & Resound, Dan HarbarNam and Consequene.'

    Fucking win

    Like alot of you have already said I reckon the 'Diffrent' crew will be huge in 2011.
    Hunchbak, Dakosa, Thorne, Shaded.
    Eleven8 & Jekyll are producing some absolute monsters, got real talent.

    Skeptical, Jubei, June Miller, Seba. All the Exit, Darkestral, Nonplus people as well. Theres too many!
