50 songs from last year – #25 – Objekt – Ratchet

Not so much a bold new breakthrough as a minor evolution in the largely dormant world of acid techno, still very welcome for all that.

50 songs from last year – #26 – Röyksopp & Robyn – Do It Again

A theme this year seems to be “I wasn’t into them before, but this is great.” This goes for Robyn more than it does for Royksopp.

50 songs from last year – #27 – Serebro – Ya Tebya Ne Otdam

Russian girl group, rubbish cheap music video. Obviously I like the song though, or it wouldn’t be here.

50 songs from last year – #29 – Klaxons – Atom to Atom (second half)

Bit of a quandry here – my least favourite bit of the (very good) new Klaxons album is the first half of Atom to Atom, but my favourite bit is the second half of Atom to Atom. So I’m selecting the second half of it. It’s a cheat, I know, and I’ll cheat twice again, it’s my blog. Can someone make a whole LP that sounds like this, please?

50 songs from last year – #31 – Jamie xx – Sleep Sound

My choices seem a bit predictable at this point, but this had to be here really. Though ‘All Under One Roof Raving’ would’ve been much more interesting to talk about, this is still the obvious highlight of his two singles in 2014.
