2005 Top Ten

This year there are a lot of new names on my list. Surprisingly, both Autechre and Prefuse 73’s new albums were disappointing, but I discovered plenty of great underground hip-hop. Melodic electronic music made a strong come-back thanks mainly to dedicated European labels. Even though Yunx’s In the Heat of the Night didn’t make my list, a special tip goes to the track “Dis Go Funk Ur Ass”!
