LWE 2Q Reports: Staff Charts

Whether there’s a narrative in the trajectory of dance music in 2009 is open for interpretation and snide remarks, but even a cursory glance at the lists compiled LWE’s staff suggests this year’s been full of excellent music. The most mentioned by far is STL’s nuance-filled “Silent State,” with various cuts from Ben Klock and Black Jazz Consortium following behind. Peter Van Hoesen’s “Attribute One” and album tracks from Martyn’s Great Lengths were also well represented. What made your top 10 list? What did we overlook? We look forward to reading your thoughts (and the rest of an already enjoyable year for dance music).
