10 tracks that made my 2011

December 22nd, 2011 // No Comments // Posted by Lukas

My friend Roberdo asked me to make a top 10 2011 selection for his blog roberdo.de published last sunday and i must say, not an easy task as there was so much good stuff, but great fun to go through some of the tracks that made my year. I really like the selection that came out so i decided to repost it here. Here you go, the year in one paragraph: I listened to a lot of slow house & deep house, indie, downtempo and dubstepish electronica.. in 2011 i felt the tempo going down, with James Blake and Nicolas Jaar coming out strong with their LP’s. The debut of New York’s Sepalcure is great, Motor City Drum Ensemble published a great DJ Kicks on K7 and slow house in general had great output with Berlin-based Trickski and 6th Borough Project releasing full length LPs.
I’ll leave you with my top ten + 1 playlist (in no particular order) which is perfectly suitable for the cosy winter evenings at home, some head nodding and foot wiggling guaranteed..

Looking forward to 2012, a great christmas break to everyone!
