A Deviant 2011

If 2011 wasn't one of the most musically-rich and diverse years around then someone point me in the right direction. In the meantime watch me reach for my slice of the 2011 pie. And yes, I deliberately missed out ____ just to piss you off

If The Big Bang isn't one of the most super-charged and sure-fire dance explosions of the year then I haven't heard it. Dom & Roland: filling the gap of a Noisia LP for 2011. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTTjSr3otKo

The Mesektet


'The Mesektet', in ancient egyptian mythology, is one of the two solar boats used by the sun god 'Ra' to travel through the cycle of night and day and carry the moon across the sky. It is told that he died every dusk, had to fight the dark forces of the underworld and bring light to the dead souls as he passed through -- just to be reborn in the morning - Well, that should tell you all that you need to know..... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pB-FdAfOt-I

6BNJMN
Black Square


Much like The Weeknd, this is BNJMN's second release for the year, and while Black Square is the clear winner Plastic World, at one point, had a spot on this list. That someone can churn out such amazing tracks in such a short amount of time is nothing short of incredible. For any Teebs fans out there, you might be familiar with BNJMN under his alter-ego of Jackhigh. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_EMYDnvnxM&feature=related

James Blake


I think I've talked about this young man enough for the year, and yet even after all the inspection and the analysis I feel as if I still only just breaching the surface. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVgEaDemxjc
3Zomby
Dedication


That the elusive Zomby is able to pluck so much regret and sorrow out of something created from a laptop isn't the most stunning aspect of this album. That, without the use of words, you instantly identify with all that pain and inner turmoil is the ultimate assertion that Zomby is one of, if not the most, gifted producer in dubstep right now. One of the most haunting albums of the year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiyxPeuBf0M
2Submotion Orchestra
Finest Hour


Perhaps the biggest surprise of the year, though given how much I fell in love with their debut EP I shouldn't have been as surprised as ended up being. What should've been a novelty ended up becoming the most complimentary pairing of contrasts that ended up almost running away with the whole damn year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOlBZGFu9vc
1Swarms
Old Raves End


There really isn't a great deal that I can say about this album that hasn't already been discussed ad infinitum in my review for it, except to say that I've yet to uncover something as beautiful as Old Raves End; beautiful to the point where the fragile nature of the work is in danger of simply shattering into a thousand pieces. It's the response to those times in your life that you can't quite put into words, those empty moments that rob you of your ability to explain beyond the most basic of reflexes. It's a forlorn walk down a washed out memory lane, rediscovering the places you spent as a child now boarded up and derelict. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xk6xRKk8NkU
