So here’s the final toplist of 2009. As you can see – I’m quite into lists. Favourite nerd ish.
The 4th fav’s list is the stuff which doesn’t really fit into one of the other categories.There’s way too much good music out there.
Okäi’s Top 15 Best Random Tracks of 2009
- Beatconductor – I Can’t Go For That
Such a good edit. Straight funky beats.
- Britney Spears – Circus (Diplo Rmx)
Diplo is THE man. One of the best re-rubs of the year.
- Dam-Funk – Hood Pass Intact
Pure instrumental Funk madness. Thick. A 5xLP of tight beats – who ever did that?
- DJ Class – I’m The Shit
The first real B’More hit to me. Nothing very inventive, just well done.
- Fleetwood Mac – Brown Eyes (Maulongated Version)
Headphone-summer-feel-good track par excellence. Can’t believe this is Fleetwood Mac.
- Idle Warship – Girls On The Dancefloor
I really like the Electro-Pop-Soul-Rap crossove stuff Kweli and Res are doing. Hope they’ll do an LP.
- Jan Delay – Oh Johnny
The German hit of the year. Everybody here agrees on that track.
- KIG – Head, Shoulders, Knees, Toes
This one is pure London backyard stuff. Grimey and danceable.
- La Roux – Quicksand (Mad Decent Rmx)
Don’t know if either Diplo or Devro or both did the mix but it beats the already slammin OG-version.
- Major Lazer – Pon De Floor
Crossover hit of the year. Again Diplo in this list. You can still play it on any party – People go nuts.
- Miike Snow – Burial (DJ Mehdi Rmx)
Mehdi goes deep on this one. Really looking forward to a new LP from my man from Paris.
- Mstrkrft – Heartbreaker feat. John Legend
Good combo. John Legend = very word.
- Sally Shapiro – I’ll Be By Your Side (Tensnake Rmx)
Tensnake is from Hamburg but I never heard him play. Such a shame. I basically like any of his neo-disco-deep-house-productions.
- Sharam – She Came Along feat. Kid Cudi
Most obscure combo of the year. Country x Cudi x Clubmusic.
- Whitest Boy Alive – Courage
So many good songs every year. Is Erlend sleeping sometimes?
- Bottin – No Static
Deep disco sh*t. Italians do it better.
- Florence & The Machine – You’ve Got The Love (XX Rmx)
Very sweet song for the right moments. The XX-remix made even more out of it but I also could’ve picked the original version.
