70 "In This Shirt (Röyksopp Edit)" - The Irrepressibles - Norwegian wizards of electronica turning yet another track into an utter masterpiece, making it sound their own. Epic +10 minutes of world class electronica

69 "Blend - Revised" - UpHIgh Collective feat. Delvis - wondrous urban vibes, 2011 the year of reinventing soul music
OP02 - Uphigh Collective - Blend by on-point

68 "Rozszczep" - Nosowska - one of 2 tracks from my homeland included in my ranking, a moody piece of unsettling strings, cloudy micro-beats and THAT voice...

67 "Pharaohs" - SBTRKT feat. Roses Gabor - Miss Gabor gracing not any less than 3 tunes in my top 100, here's hoping we get to hear some of her solo stuff in 2012

66 "123, If You Want Me" - Steed Lord - Icelandic ultra-cool electro fashionistas who re-released their 2010 singles with fresh breakthrough videos

65 "Ritual Union" - Little Dragon - I literally don't know one single person who wouldn't fall for this perfect little gem

64 "Run the World (Girls)" - Beyoncé - no 1 Girl Power anthem of the new decade

63 "Good Night Good Morning" - Beth Ditto - controversially speaking and being a massive Gossip fan, La Ditto's first ever solo material is possibly the best thing she's been involved in so far...

62 "Tailor-made" - Daedelus feat. Milosh - an enthrallingly cacophonous electronic symphony which didn't sound quite like anything else in 2011

61 "Take 'Em Up" - Shit Robot feat. Nancy Whang - exactly how many excellent dance records was DFA diva Nancy Whang was involved in at this stage? Marvellous!
