    There were threads for the last couple of years, and it's only fair a thread for this year pops up too.

    Who do people reckon are going to have a belter of a year this year?
    My money's on Ivy Lab, Lynx, Krakota, Conduct and Emperor.

    Emperor & Krakota are definitely going to rise this year. Haven't heard one bad tune from either of em. Emperors' forthcoming tunes are mint.

    DLR, Mako, Sabre, Mark System and Alix Perez

    And if Jubei gets back on the producing tip, he'll be one to look out for in 2015

    Ivy Lab, Deft, Mark System, Break (his album mainly), Hidden Turn are the ones off the top of my head, can't think of anymore, in this freezing morning.

    Is this not just pretty much a list of producers that are established?

    I might be barking up the wrong tree but I'd expect to see artists in here that have a handful of release out or people I've not heard of (though there are a few of those in here to be fair)? I wouldn't expect people like Break, Lynx, DLR etc to appear here though

    I'd say Vromm, Thing, Hidden Turn (all possibly already mentioned).

    Definitely on this shout!

    Excited for more Xanadu releases The LP is quality.
    Would love to see more from the Om Unit lads. Inversion was quality and harks back to the old Metalheadz sound. Moar please!

    For once I can't really say who will rock this year. The scene as a whole has a lot of good things going on in their respective corners which can only be good news for everyone supporting.

    If we see alot of Dub Motion releases then him for sure, hopefully won't be a quiet year for him he's got some really good tunes about.

    Kimyan Law - I hear there's some unbelievable tracks forthcoming. Caught the last 15 minutes of his UK debut set at Hospitality at the weekend and he was playing some great music. What sounded like a VIP of 'Daimyo' was absolutely huge!

    DLR - Album is sounding ridiculous and the One Mind project with Mako is very promising.

    Despicable Youth - Everything I have heard has been top notch, love to see them make it big.

    Conduct - Album forthcoming on BMTM. Absolutely smashed it with their set at Plan B in November playing some really unique tunes. Their remix of Hunter was one of my favourites of 2014.

    Minor Rain - Absolutely insane production. Seriously hyped to hear more!

    Going to be a great year thats for sure :)

    Hugh Hardie if he releases a decent number of tunes could go big

    From the names that hasn't been mentioned yet definitely Villem & Mcleod and Blue Motion, if he does put out some more tunes :)
