Here is the list of the releases I have put into my bag for this year 2018. These are not the “best” of the year, they are those that have attracted my attention, and each of them, for different reason. Those that I had the chance to discover. There are so many other goods releases. And so many other artists that I still don’t know or that all of us already know.. For this reason you won’t find any mainstream releases in my list. This list is in close relation to my owns tastes in music, my constant research of “hidden sounds”, and in close relation relation with my own perceptions. To put an order to them would be a joke, because our perceptions are constantly moving. This is why I will present them in alphabetical order. However, by creating this list I have always kept in my mind an essential question. “will these albums find their place in time?” 

Thanks to all artists, musicians, producers and Labels for this beautiful year 2018!
