Struggled with this as I bought so much in 2010 and can't remember anything that particularly struck me as brilliant.

Top tune - Going to cheat here and put reissue and tune together. But one record I really liked was Lil' Tony - Solid State, which I probably played most of the year.

Top Reissue - Soft Cell - memorabilia (Luke Solomon's Ecstasy Dub) - for me this an amazing remix and is 10 years old also featuring a vocal from Cindy Ecstasy. In many ways it's everything I want from a "dance" record from the rough bass to the whispered vocals.

Top Album - I bought a lot last year but none whatsoever actually enthrall me enough to rave on about so in that case I won't choose.


As everyone has been saying 2010 was a good year for reissues from Chris & Cosey to Larry Heard and all the Minimal Wave stuff resurfacing as well.

... Although the ARP album The Soft Wave was quite good and all that Endless Boogie stuff too. This is fucking hard
