The Inaugural LWAPD “Tune’dem of the Year” Awards, brought to you in association with R.White’s Lemonade*

Ah, Christmas… a time for mistletoe, mulled wine, and geeky best-something-of-the-year lists created by losers on the internet. Without further ado, here’s Tommy Digital’s Top Five Records of the Oh-Nine. Where’s yours?

1. Joker / 2000f & J Kamata – Digidesign / You Don’t Know What Love Is

This is sort of cheating because by rights these should be numbers one and two respectively. But since Hyperdub were kind enough to put dubstep’s most melodic moment and the the world’s first/only electro-vocoder-crunkstep tune on the same 12″, I reckon it’s okay. Two copies essential.

Fast like Flo Jo crazy like Cujo


Floating Points is a bloke called Sam who’s studying for a PhD in Molecular Genetics,  and also makes cinematic electric soul music. Clever geezer, basically. Anyway he’s put out a few records on circular vinyl disc, and a couple more on electronic mp3 tapes. His latest one is called Vacuum Boogie, and it’s fucking excellent. You can listen on his myspazz, and buy it in, like, shops

FloPo (I just invented that, hope it’s going to catch on) also did this Maida Vale session with a live band for Gilles Peterson a couple of weeks ago. Long story short, it was awesome, and you can download it here.  People who steal music definitely go to hell probably, but I reckon it’ll be worth it.  Sorry Jesus.

If you were feeling the Brownswood Bubblers or the Bullion business then this should be right up your proverbial. In fact, if you don’t like it then you should probably check yourself. Otherwise you might be in serious danger of wrecking yourself.

You’re probably gonna get sick of me banging on about how good Bullion is, but there’s really nothing I can do about that so you should probably just get used to it.

Here’s why: taking a break from being a sick-like-swine-flu producer of Low End Theory style blip-hop, he’s just released another (free) mix on the internet with like Joni Mitchell and ELO and shit on it. Sunday morning business.

Brownswood Bubblers Mixtape

bubblers mixtape

It’s good when music is free, and even better when it’s legal. Better still when the free, legal music is actually good. If you see what I mean.

Hats off to the Brownswood crew, then, for the Best of Bubblers mixtape. It’s got a bunch of highlights from the first three compilations in the series, and a couple of cheeky previews of number four. It’s got that Mayer Hawthorne tune on there, plus tracks from west-coast mentalist Flying Lotus, beat generation golden boy Bullion, and some other characters who I’ve never heard of but are probably a bit good.

Free download here. Thanks Gilles.
