BEST OF 2010

December 30th, 2010

It’s that time of year. The time of year when I have to sit there losing my mind over what to call this years best of. This is easily one of the hardest things you can ask any music enthusiast to do, simply because picking favourite songs out of thousands is very, very hard. This year I have 3 of ‘the best’ (I know I may have missed something, or just completely forgotten about a song, so bare with me) from the 3 genres I’ve posted most of this year, ELECTRO, DUBSTEP and DRUM N BASS. And awaaaaaay we go!

ELECTRO

Cyberpunkers – OMG (Tom Deluxx Remix) daftwho? BEST OF 2010

Anyone who remembers the first time they heard this drop will know why it’s up here. Tom Deluxx has been around for some time now, releasing tracks here and there, but this remix really smacks you in the face.

Antention – Fireball daftwho? BEST OF 2010

If you’ve been following the scene you’ll know that Antention has absolutley destroyed 2010. Track after track after track, he’s a force to be reckoned with. Australian label TUFFEMUP! Records were smart enough to snatch up this Russian monster and you’re going to be seeing and hearing lots more in 2011.

K.OH! – Boondock Demon’s daftwho? BEST OF 2010

A very under appreciated and under exposed one right here. K.OH! hails from the Gold Coast in Australia and Boondock Demon’s still melts my ears off everytime I blast it through my speakers. Get on this and appreciate underground sounds!

DUBSTEP

Vaski – Game Face daftwho? BEST OF 2010

US dubstep producer Vaski is one of my favourite. Not only are his releases grimey balls of goodness, but the cleaness and sharpness of his tracks is just mind blowing. Game Face is a true dubstep bomb and if you haven’t got this, you’re missing out.

Skrillex – Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites (Noisia Remix) daftwho? BEST OF 2010

Man of the moment. You all know Skrillex and how amazing of a producer he is. Well Noisia is better. All you people out there who want to argue with me listen to this remix and every one of Noisia’s productions.

J. Rabbit feat. Tremourz – Sexy Party daftwho? BEST OF 2010

You know what time it is? It’s time for a SEXY PARTY!!!

DRUM N BASS

Delta Heavy – Space Time daftwho? BEST OF 2010

Amazing track from Delta Heavy. Awesome video to go along with it as well. If you hear this out and don’t dance like a mad man, you have something wrong with you.

Doctor P – Sweet Shop (Friction Vs Camo & Krooked Remix) daftwho? BEST OF 2010

I think everyone and his dog has this track by now. Camo & Krooked taking one of this years biggest tracks to the next level. This remix is why Sweet Shop doesn’t make best dubstep track of 2010.

Krafty Kuts – Shake Them Hips (Drumsound & Bassline Smith Remix) daftwho? BEST OF 2010

Drumsound & Bassline Smith got me into drum n bass years ago and I’ve never gone back. And just when I thought I wouldn’t hear from them again, this massive remix comes out. I’ve turned people onto drum n bass with this one, so you know they’re doing something right.

HONORABLE MENTION

Len Faki – Death By House daftwho? BEST OF 2010

I gave best track of 2009 to Len Faki‘s remix of Stranger To Stability (which is still just mind blowing) and I thought I’d let all you guys know he isn’t a one hit wonder. 7 minutes of progressive techno glory. Listen to the whole thing nice and loud and you’ll know why.

That’s all folks! See you in 2011!
