Tracks of the year 2009

Despite all this a few things managed to slip through and become firm favourites so lets take a look at a couple of them. I’m hoping to look at about 10 or so that really made a strong …

Where they’re at

I’m in a flat but still haven’t had a chance to review the Innervisions party at Fabric which was over a month ago. Whoops. Ame and Dixon are playing again here on the 30th for another Innervisions night. I’m not the biggest fan of Plastic People and Thursday night…. we’ll see.
Saw these on Faith. They’re recorded off some Spanish radio station live from somewhere. I’m really enjoying the Henrik Schwarz mix. Still haven’t managed to see him live. His mix is here.
Also a mix from Frank of Ame, Dixon and …
