Crème de la crème: JANUARY 2010

In the speed of light we're at the end of the first month of 2010 already. Here's top 20 of the month according 2 my tri-weekly personal charts. As it always happens 2 me in January, it includes some tunes that I have missed out on the previous year and some that only appeared in December and still make my ears smile:-)

20- YOU'LL DISAPPEAR (Munk Remix) - Phenomenal Handclap Band - thank you's go 2 "Tutriziro Recordings", danced 2 it a dozen of times around the coffee table in my living room;-)

19- FEEL IT ALL AROUND - Washed Out - kinda not very "me" type of a song, intriguing and haunting Air-esque landscapes

18- NEVER STOP BELIEVING (Munk Club Edit) - The KDMS Feat. Kathy Diamond - Brighton's nu disco queen & her new project

17- JOURNAL OF ARDENCY - Class Actress - like my favourite music geek Piotrek once said, this is what GLASS CANDY would sound like if Ida No was dragged off the stage by FEIST...

16- DON'T STOP - Annie - Bergen's finest and the title track from her 2nd pure-pop-perfection album

15- ONE LIFE STAND - Hot Chip - catchy catchy catchy by the masters of always the bestest first singles

14- ROCKET - Goldfrapp - the ROCKET will properly explode next month, can't wait 4 the video. Alison Goldfrapp goes Van Halen in the discoteka:-)

13- F*** SONG - Cassian

12- SHAMELESS - Groove Armada Feat. Bryan Ferry

11- MY FANTASY - Sally Shapiro - italo disco norwegian style

10- ACAPELLA - Kelis - hard 2 believe this one was produced by David Guetta responsible for 2 out of last year's 3 worst singles!!!

09- LOOKING GLASS - Little Dragon - swedish sonic delicatessen with the wonderful YUKIMI NAGANO on vocals

08- THIN ICE - Gus Gus - video edit a perfect alternative 2 the 9 minutes long album electro-marathon

07- MOSES - Elizabeth Fraser - the ethereal and exquisite Miss Frazer, haven't been waiting 4 anybody's come back as much as 4 this one... Magical

06- GIRL I LOVE YOU (She Is Danger Remix) - Massive Attack Feat. Horace Andy - dubby yummy BLUE LINES updated 4 the new decade

05- LIVING WITHOUT YOUR LOVE - Walter Jones - delicate & groovy, excellent choice 4 both pre and after-party soundtrack

04- LOVE ME LIKE THIS - Floating Points - perfect bridge between 1980's rare grooves & deep house of 2day, shout-outs go 2 Darren, gracias amigo:-)

03- LOVE - Dj Cam Feat. Nicolette - the return of my personal favourite vocalist on DJ Cam's sensual and nu-jazzy epic new track

02- RECKLESS - Azari & III - good oldskool house anthem, nothing 2 add, impossible not 2 dance 2!

01- MOMMA'S PLACE - Róisín Murphy - kinda guessed it from the youtube clips last year of La Murphy using this tune during her dj sets, that it's going 2 be massive... And it certainly is, vintage house instant anthem, 14 times number 1 on my charts, 49 plays on my i-tunes not bad 4 a single that's only 3 weeks old. Basically it's your best 0.99 cent spent this month baby...
