Asian Dan Top Ten of 2011

It is that time of the year where we all round up our favorite #mp3s of the year and sum up the year of 2011 in Music. Making these lists are difficult since so much great music came out in 2011, but here are the tracks and albums that stuck with me in 2011.

I will say hands down that Metronomy’s “The English Riviera” is my favorite album of the year, an album that proved they are amazing songwriters and that they put on a great live show. Rustie destroyed 2011 with “Glass Swords” which shows that he is so FUTURE. The Stepkids, Blood Orange and the odd men out, About Group show that honest songwriting and impeccable musicianship still shines through all the hype and buzz of the modern age. I could not stop listening to Blawan “Getting Me Down”, Jim-E Stack “Lemme”, Jamie xx “Far Nearer”, and everything Julio Bashmore produced this year #seriousvibes. Cheers 2011 and here’s to 2012 and all the great music to come.

Also please checkout some of my favorite mixes that I made with the COLT+RANE team: COLT+RANE x The Blind Barber Mix C+R : #summervibes, C+R : autumnal tones 2011, and C+R : A Longtime

Metronomy x Erol Alkan

Metronomy has released one of my favorite albums of the year with “The English Riviera” – an album that exercises the power of subtly through production, songwriting, lyrics, and musicianship. At first it took over 5+ listens to really appreciate and understand the album, especially after not being a fan of their previous LP’s. “The Look” was the tune that won me over and after seeing them live in Tours, France back in February I was ready to accept Metronomy into my life. Listen to this teaser of Erol Alkan’s remix of “The Bay” – a tune that makes slap bass cool again.

Connan Mockasin x Erol Alkan

Erol Alkan has been pumping out some amazing quality remixes lately. First with that fantastic remix of Tame Impalaand now this psychedelic journey of a remix for Connan Mockasin. I guess it is always a hit when Erol remixes an Aussie or Kiwi rock band.
