JT's 2016 Digs and Other Jams
1Jefre Cantu-Ledesma
In Summer


Why is no one talking about this? Far better than last year's A Year With 13 Moons and probably his best release since 2013's Devotion EP.
2Thee Oh Sees
Live In San Francisco


This is considerably better than anything I've heard of their studio material. Skip A Weird Exits (this year's studio album) and get this instead.
3MJ Guider
Precious Systems


Gorgeous ambient pop/shoegaze for fans of Grouper and in particular those who enjoyed Liz Harris' collab with Jefre-Cantu Ledesma under the Raum moniker.
4Måla
Carnal Sense


Beautiful, sensual ambient with very minimal techno elements.

5DjRum
Forgetting


Induction might well be right up there among Djrum's top 5 tracks, along with Untitled 9 from his split with Struction from earlier this year.
6Margaret Dygas
XLR8R Podcast 445


DJ Mix of the year so far, possibly.

7TAJ and ZOBY
Music to Clean to


Very nice ambient, showing a different side to Tara Jane O'Neil.

8Clark
Clarence Park


Not 2016 but a near-classic and often overlooked IDM album.

Also on my current playlist is Clark's new single released as part of this year's Adult Swim Singles Program; Mirage Trooper.

9Blanck Mass
The Great Confuso


Blanck Mass' contribution to the this year's Adult Swim Singles collection is even better; D7-D5

10DjRum
The Miracle


Been on a bit of a Djrum kick as of late, due in large part to his string of releases this year (some of which I'm still yet to hear).
11Jono McCleery
Ballade


Djrum remix is class.
