2013

kanye and beyonce both showed us that they’ve got no fucks left to give, making some brilliant and forward-thinking records in the process. our chicago footwork heroes dj rashad, traxman, and rp boo all came correct with rapid-fire quality and continued their awesomely unexpected global takeover. our housier homies including terekke, huerco, patricia, and anthony naples released amazing eps and tracks on labels like opal tapes and l.i.e.s., pushing the sound into new territories and dominating my ears and dj sets. arca and galcher lustwerk both made mixtapes so good they pretty much qualify as albums, with galcher totally seducing me (and everyone) by year end. wm favorites four tet, oneohtrix, omar-s, burial, and the knife delivered some truly great full-lengths, but as far as tracks go, seems like this year i just wanted to dance my pain away.
