1. Smashing Pumpkins - For Martha (epic and beautiful song in memory to Martha Corgan who died during the making of Adore)
2. A Perfect Circle - Sleeping Beauty (lovely riffage, especially in that last passage, typical amazing APC)
3. Shpongle - A New Way to Say Hooray (was a close call between this, DMTruth and BCEyelids, but the chanting and samples in this one stand out from the crowd)
4. King Britt - Planetary Analysis feat. Rich Medina (the sunscreen song meets cynical hip hop. the perfect perspective on life. listen to this tune)
5. A Tribe Called Quest - 8 Million Stories (jazzy early-90s street rap. features the line "just last week my girl was stressin me, now her best friend be undressin me" :P)
6. Bob Marley - Rainbow Country (cause summer comin on mon! now go cook me some of dem eggs and beercan!)
7. The Thrills - Big Sur (soundtrack to many a picnic this year me thinks)
8. The Fugees - The Score (not the song the album, because i could not pick just one tune. amazing)
9. Less Than Jake - Help Save the Youth of America From Exploding (reminds me of good times :Smile3:)
10. Jimi Hendrix - Castles Made of Sand (play this at my funeral)

Big Bud - Late Night Blues: Drum and bass/ambient album from one of the best prducers in drum and bass. Very dreamy and excelt home listening

Steve Bug & DJ T - Monsterbaze (Evil Nine Rmx)- Tripped out breaks track. Very good production and grooves

LFO- LFO - 1991 and i still think its fucking genious. Acid house as you like with a 4/4 kick and out of space sounds and a great bassline

Aphex Twin- Tha- Again the 90's but a msterpiece of ambient goodness. Might say that most material from aphex twin is fucking remakable. The drkqus album especally.

Criminal Minds - Baptised By dub - Dub influnced hardcore for 1992. I still play this today cus its too good to ignore

Black Sun Empire- Smoke (RMX) - Just listen to the bass line. Not quite heared a bass like this anywhere. Very trancy but remains full on drum and badboy bass

deviant electronics - suspense hypothesis - this is psybreaks. breaks with the atmosphere and melodies you wanna hear. A bueatiful compostion.

Lionel Richie - All Night Long - Super super silky smooth. You all know this and its a great track, im gunna have to play this now

Photek-rings around saturn - Np one will chop up drum in perfect rythem like photek, rings around saturn is truley remarkable. A great beakbeat workout.

Wizzy Noise=opus drive--...hahaha only joking..

last one humm.. so many more..

Dorset Perception- Shpongle - Great great song, Simple
Yeap i missed out lots and you can see i like the elcetronic way of life, im not old enough to be aware of anything pre 1990's so this is my fav so far. But come on .. Lionel Richie even before my time, is super greatness.

Hmm, this changes daily, so here is stuff I have been listening to a lot:

Kaos - Now and Forever (on heavy rotation atm)

MIA - pratically any track off her album Arular (Booty/Electroey/Krunkystuff)

Freezepop - Bikethief and I am not your Gameboy (Pure unadulterated synthpop)

Midnight Mike - Hot in the Kitchen (very silly electro)

LCD Soundsystem - Losing My Edge, this should be forced down the ears of any DJ's that are dissapering up their own arse :Smile3:

Dick Richards - Facesitter

Dymaxion - What is the product?

The Mogs - Kelly Blame

Vector Lovers - Eletrobotic Disco

Nathan Fake - The Sky was Pink (James Holden mix)

I think my alltime top 10 would look completely different!!

Fromem_Ory ==> Thanx for the heads up on "King Britt - Planetary Analysis (feat. Rich Medina)"... The sample you provided was so good I immidiately paid the p79 to download it from 7digital.com ... Brilliant tune! ;o)

My list of non-psy tunes is constantly morphing, but here's something that I've enjoyed lately: (random order)

* Beck - Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometimes (Great track from a brilliant movie: Eternal Sunshine of the...)
*D-A-D - Scare Yourself (Biggest Danish rock-act ever - doing a St. Anger move ~ agressive hard rock)
*The White Stripes - Blue Orchid (Looking forward to the new album)
*Adam Freeland - We Want Your Soul (!)
*Damien Rice - Cannonball (Poppy yes - wonderful tune)
*Gotan Project - Triptico (Brilliant cross-over electronica from one of the Buddha Bars compilations)
*Lazyboy - Underwear Goes Inside the Pants (Reminds me alot of the King Britt track mentioned above - check it out!)
*Radiohead - Karma Police (For a minute there I lost myself...)
*Stone Roses - I Wanna Be Adores (#1 suicide tune ever - I read somewhere... )
*The Black Crowes - Nonfication (Sweaty southern blues... Sweet!)

I'm gonna break the rules a bit - some music should be listened to as part of a whole, and I always enjoy things more when they are part of an amazing whole.

1. J.S. Bach - Six Unaccompanied 'Cello Suite (You may have to be a cellist to really appreciate this though)

2. R. Strauss - Metamorphosen (!!! !!! !!! Soooooo many layers)

3. R. Strauss - Four Last Songs (Thank god the advertising people on TV haven't got hold of this yet)

4. Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon (Breakthrough moment for me)

5. Miles Davis - Kind of Blue

6. Ozric Tentacles - Spirals in Hyperspace

7. The Orb - The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld (and in particular, a huge ever growing pulsating brain that rules from the centre of the ultraworld :Smile3: )

8. Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral

9. Rachmaninov - Prelude in D Minor

10. Tom Waits - Rain Dogs

Bah, okay so only two of those are an actual tune per se. And I'm not sure they are in the right order, but generally, this is what i think should be on there.

Nine Inch Nails - The Great Below
Smashing Pumpkins - Disarm/Soma (2 tracks I know but great to follow on from each other)

System of a Down - Spiders
Deftones - Around the Fur
Mindless Self Indulgence - Faggot
Incubus - Favourite Things
Korn - Shoots and Ladders
Tool - Reflection

I think this is more 'a' top 10 (i know its 11) rather than 'the' top 10 way too tunes to choose from. Not even looked at non-rock.

2. Prefuse 73 - One Word Extinguisher
3. Gong - Angel's Egg
4. Miles Davis - Kind of Blue (good to see it on someone else's list!!)
5. Squarepusher - Hard Normal Daddy
6. The Bees - Sunshine Hit Me
7. Frank Zappa - Hot Rats
8. The Mars Volta - Deloused in the Comatorium
9. Boards of Canada - Music has the Right to Children
