I am pretty sure that professional DJs and music lovers will agree, as useful as they are Beatport charts are pretty annoying: too much plugging (even if you kind of have to), obligation to chart tracks available on the platform, massive influence of a handful of DJs etc... And I do not subscribe to Resident Advisor. for a long time, I was reluctant to put 'real' charts out there ,after all, my 'reputation' has always been based on the singularity of my record box more than anything else... But I am getting older (sure) and wiser (may be). I can't think of any good reason to hide the tunes I love anymore... You'll find below a bit of everything: demos, promos, unreleased, vinyls, tracks bought elsewhere than Beatport (I'll come back on the matter soon). I am not saying that none of these can be find there but the point was surely to give an alternative to the chart I sent yesterday to the big B.
In no particular order, these really rock my world right now:
LCD SOUNDSYSTEM-I CAN CHANGE (TIGA RX)-DFA
HARMONY FUNK-CAN'T LET YOU GO (MB RX)-CLONE
CARIBOU-BOWLS (JAMES HOLDEN RX)-CITY SLANG
GONZALES-CAN'T STOP (EROL ALKAN RX)-PHANTASY
MONOBLOC-DIRTY (ISE8 RX)-REMAIN
CHLOE-ONE IN ANOTHER (ALEX SMOKE RX)-KTDJ
RMVN-AMEN ADORNO (THE EYES IN THE HEAT RX)-KTDJ
RILEY RHEINOLD-ASHPHALT HEROES-MBF LTD
MEGAPHONO-DON'T COUGH-BARKING DOGS
AL USHER-LULLABY FOR ROBERT-INTERNASJONAL
you'll be able to find some of these. others will not come out for months. sorry but there's no middle line here.
