Okay, let's have it. What have I missed, what floated your boat? What music could you just not leave alone and found yourself reaching for over and over? I struggled a bit to think of music that totally blew my gourd in 2016, but here's my faves from the past year... FSOL Environments 6 & 6.5 I'm a bit of a lost cause when it comes to FSOL. Truth be told, it's sort of more of the same, but I just love their sound, and can sink into any number of consecutive albums from their From the Archives or Environments series. Can you have more of the same when more of the same is endlessly inventive? Lunacell Cylon Lounge The best of it for deep, solid, tripped out after-hours psytrance this year. In the interest of full disclosure, I'm not really listening to psytrance much at the minute, so please - tell me what was outstanding by all means. Lunecell continued to hit the sweet spot here with driving hard sounds that retain a sense of space. I need a bit of space around my beats these days. Squid Inc. Indelible While we're on with the psytrance, loved this. Old-school UK style in that Ambivalent Records, chunky Trick Music mould. Arrived just as I was worried that psytrance was terminally, fatally boring. Continuum Become Happier Our Ian! He did it! He finally released an album, and it's a beauty! Perfect chilled, dreamy, deep, thoughtful and musically satisfying. Our Ian! Nice work brother, I'm proud of you. Max Cooper Emergence Top tip from Torsion Jim. I can find a lot of what you recommend a bit abrasive for me Jim, but I am ALL over this. Heavy rotation at the minute. Order From Chaos had me in tears again yesterday, and Impermanence (feat Kathrin DeBoer) is the natural theme to Bill Viola's The Return (2007). Amazing techno adventure.
