33 in 2008

Hello, sisters and brothers! The year 2009 has already begun its journey towards its logic end, and, supposedly, the first post should deal with a roundup of the previous year, which, in musical terms, was not bad at all. Although there were no big surprises, the existing branches of what we know as electronic dance music kept growing, thriving and mutating into new exciting forms. So, here we go again – below you can find my selection, a fairly subjective one, of those house ‘n techno tunes which seemed to have been the most important to me in 2008, i.e., either they have been heavily present in my DJ-ing répertoire or simply I have found them being outstanding pieces of the contemporary beat music. I have picked up 33 tracks. Furthermore, posts with listings of 10 best albums and the most important record labels will follow soon.
