This saw Daft Punk’s cool-factor rise with about 224 % Nobody does what Drop Out’s Gary B does! 2012 will see him taking over the world. Mark my words!

14: Aeroplane – Big Boys Don’t Cry (blogged September 16th)
I still don’t get the horns at the begining and in the end, but this emotive and mellow masterpiece said hail to one of the big ones that we lost in 2011. We miss you DJ Mehdi 😦
[jwplayer config=”audioavalon” mediaid=”827″]

13: Lykke Li – I Follow Rivers (The Magician remix) (blogged February 17th)
Aeroplane broke in two. That left us with a severed Aeroplane and a Magician. I like Stephen’s work a lot. But somehow Aeroplane had it all when the two of them were still collaborating.
[jwplayer config=”audioavalon” mediaid=”828″]

12: Moon Boots – Gopher It (blogged August 2nd)

[jwplayer config=”audioavalon” mediaid=”834″]


6: Body Language – Social Studies (Plastic Plates remix)

Felix aka. Plastic Plates is for me the biggest newcomer of 2011. What he does is fresh, new… Winning! Stupendously cool remix, and somehow he keeps topping himself!
[jwplayer config=”audioavalon” mediaid=”835″]

5: Todd Terje – Ragysh
This one almost didn’t get finished?!! Terje then went through his “stuffishouldtakeacloserlookat” drawer and plosihed it up. New sound from him for sure. And this really takes him to new heights. Add moaning and you have a new French Kiss anno 2011!
