Your list is very similar to mine. You should check out Various Production and Joanna Newsom's newie Ys.

Did you ever check out Reuber "Kintopp". I think I was supposed to send one out to you or something...if you haven't heard it...its the most amazing electronic record I've heard in years.

Solid list - quite a few that might make my top 10 amongst that batch as well! Couple others I've recently run across that are contenders - Boxcutter's "Oneiric" on Planet Mu (one of the only dubstep records I've really been into, save the Burial album you listed) and Remote_'s "Changes in Style" (deep, heady techno in a Basic Channel/Swayzak/Black Dog mold) - you might also enjoy...

I see Burial made it onto your list, have you heard this...
"Burial - Breezeblock Radio 1 - 04 Apr 2006"
Great mix, and I just happen to have a link :)

Matthew Dear as Audion "Mouth to Mouth" though the B-side "Hot Air" is better in my opinion. He is coming to Cielo end of November.

*need to dl the various production record- i like the single's ive heard esp hater

*downloaded from itunes the reuber record but managed to lose it when my laptop got nicked. will grab right now...

*heard of boxcutter- will check!

*thank you so much for the burial mix!

*agree re: b-side- that track gets completely overshadowed by mouth to mouth but is still outstanding.

Lovely list Colin, but the Who Made Who was 2005, I'm afraid! Other stuff off the top of my head would be The Emperor Machine's EP compilation, the Camera Obscura album, the Skream LP, Mobilee's Back2Back compilation, Solenoid's 'Supernature', Danielle Baldelli's 'Cosmic Sound', the Rekid LP and the Bass Clef LP on Eats Tapes.

The Trentemoller LP was also fairly likeable, and they released Lewis & Rinder's 'Seven Deadly Sins' this year as well. I'm sure there's loads of other stuff but that was just off the top of my head. That zip's coming soon, my man!

the emperor machine remix of Diamonds In The Sky by Husky Rescue is certainly one of my favourite tracks from this year, as is the freeform reform of Alice Smith's Love Endeavour

I got the The Blow's new album on a whim and its amazing, didn't know anything about them previously
