We asked to different musicians, producers, bloggers, journalists, label owners to make a short list of their best albums of this year. This is the list curated by Spanish producer Fernando Lagreca.
EFDEMIN / NEW ATLANTIS / OSTGUT TON
It is a really good exercise of Acid mixed with Melodic Techno, but also keep the experimental side of the artist really high.
ANTHONY NAPLES / FOG FM / ANS
Super low-fi house, distorted beats and some glitches and on top of all of this, it is extremely fun!
FLOATING POINTS / CRUSH / NINJA TUNE
One of the works with highest rotation in my playlist all the year. immense. Experimenting, searching, and getting old tunes to live, brilliant.
CATERINA BARBIERI / ECSTATIC COMPUTATIONS / EDITIONS MEGO
Not a super fan of her harmonies but have to say that the arpeggios on this one, made me feel really spiritual.
FLYING LOTUS / FLAMAGRA / WARP RECORDS
Impossible to avoid this work on a top album list, I think here the key is the huge range of styles and that funky imprint not easy to imitate.
