A quick mid-year, top-ten chart of albums/ singles/ ep's that have been doing it for me so far:

Marsen Jules- Les Fleurs (City Center Offices)
Burial-s/t (Hyperdub)
Cobblestone Jazz- Dump Truck/Peace Offering (Wagon Repair)
The Knife- Silent Shout (Rabid)
DJ Koze- Kosi Comes Around Remixes Part 1 (Kompakt)
Dabrye- Two/Three (Ghostly)
Dwayne Sodahberk- Cut Open (Tigerbeat6)
Padded Cell- Are you anywhere (DC)
Alex Smoke- Paradolia (Soma)
Delta 5- Singles and Sessions 1979-1981 (Kill Rock Stars)

And- drumroll please...My favorite ever mix from Beats in Space:

The Avalanches- November 29, 2001

Listen to the Beach Boys "Matchpoint of our Love" into a slowed down Chemical Brothers "Star Guitar," into a sped-up KLF "3 AM Eternal" into what sounds like West London broken beat version of "Breathe, stop" played at plus 8 like whoa. Highlight? Dropping the intro to the live version of Underworld's Cowgirl/ Rezza over "It Began in Africa" and mixing in the intro to "Welcome to the Jungle" over it. Listen please.

Thanks for a dose of the Avalanches! Is there a part two to this mix?
