2009 really spoilt me with a fat selection of outstanding mixes. The list I present below is neither ultimate nor exhuastive, but these are 20 mixes most heavily rotated in my player throughout a year. Enjoy!
DOKTOR KRANK'S TOP 20 MIXES OF 2009
And the winner is.....
1. LAZER SWORD - SWEATPANTS MONEY MIX. I love every minute of the mix Lazer Sword prepared for nalden.net They are the best, I f**k the rest ha ha ha. (blog post)
2. MARY ANNE HOBBS – WEST COAST ROCKS! This is not a mix as such, but a a radio show which already gained a cult status, offering the best introduction to eclectic sound of West Coast featuring crazily talented producers and DJ’s, club owners, pushers and dopers of the community. A MUST for any fan of modern electronic music!!!! In my opinion, the West Cost Rocks! has become for the American scene what famous Dubstep Warz in BBC 1 Experimental Show in January 2006 had become for popularizing the dubstep across the globe.
