electronic rumors’ top 20 songs of 2009!!!

RolandSH09

Insanity! Compiling a top twenty tracks of 2009 was infinitely harder than the album list, I have no idea how it got finished! Once again, there was so much good music released in 2009, it truly was a wicked year to be into electronic music, just look at that top ten! From established acts like Røyksopp to bands who made 2009 their own such as Filthy Dukes, La Roux and Little Boots to bands that are going to blow up in 2010 like CHEW LiPS and The Vanish, the music we’ve been given in 2009 has set the bar so high for the coming year.

I wish there were more slots, I could have easily made it a top 40 or 50, and like the album list I have probably forgotten some gem I was rockin’ to in January and I’ll probably want to reorder in a few hours. But right now, here’s the list. Many, many thanks to all the artists that provided our soundtrack to 2009 and all the artists featured on electronic rumors, without you this past year would have been a depressing, gray mess!

Here we have our top 20 albums of 2009 and there were way more than 20 records that moved us this year. If you though narrowing it down to just 20 was hard, then trying to put them in order was nearly impossible!

As fans we were spoilt this year, every album here (particularly the top ten) is a stunning piece of work.

New Le Corps Mince De Françoise single on Kitsuné

LeCorpsMinceDeFrançoise03

Le Corps Mince De Françoise are about to release their first single for Kitsuné Music. ‘Something Golden’ originally appeared on the 8th volume of the Kitsuné Maison series and now the crazy Electro girls are set to deliver a package with some killer reMixes.

Zebra & Snake and Renaissance Man both take what is quite a disjointed song (true to LCMDF’s style!) and work it into their individual dance grooves, although both reMixes have an individuality and edge that is fitting for a LCMDF track!

Le Corps Mince De Françoise – Something Golden (Zebra & Snake reMix) (zShare) (MediaFire)

Le Corps Mince De Françoise – Something Golden (Renaissance Man reMix) (zShare) (MediaFire)

‘Something Golden’ is released 7th December 7th.

Spencer Product

Old school ElectroClash (if there can be such a thing?) nightclub legend Spencer Product explodes from the New York scene once more with a new release on Coco Machette.

The Original Mix of ‘We Bite!’ is pretty standard ElectrocClash fare, I was always a little suspicious of ElectroClash, but there are some excellent reMixes from current BlogHouse darlings Designer Drugs and Tronik Youth the former putting the groove back into the song and the latter creating a robotic disco epic.

Tronik Youth’s is my favourite

‘We Bite!’ is out now.

New video from Miss Kittin & The Hacker

Ok, so I was always a little jaded about Miss Kittin & The Hacker, I defiantly though they were overrated…I may have been wrong.

This is the video for ‘1000 Dreams’ from their forthcoming album, ‘Two’ and it’s such a good track, easily the best thing they’ve ever done.

I cannot get that riff out of my head!

I really like they way the video, directed by Régis Brochier, is shot too.

‘Two’ is released April 20th.

Peaches returns

Peaches

May 4th will see the release of Peaches’ new album, ‘I Feel Cream’, her first in three years. It sees working with a roster of producers that reads like a who’s-who of Electro. Names include Soulwax, Simian Mobile Disco, Gonzales, Digitalism and Drums Of Death.

The first single from the album will be the double A-side ‘Talk To Me’/’More’, produced by Soulwax and Simian Mobile Disco respectively.

The tracks sound just as you’d expect, the Soulwax one sounding like Soulwax featuring Peaches and the SMD one sounding like SMD featuring Peaches!

‘Talk To Me’ is an Electro-Rock riot whilst ‘More’ is a thumping club affair.

‘I Feel Cream’ is out May 4th on XL Recordings.
