Reflections on 2009 : Rob Booth

Rob Booth of Electronic Explorations drops his massive list of favorite singles and albums, that deserves a dedicated post in our new Reflections section on Headphone Commute. Rob says:

2009 has been the year of bass, bass and more UK bass… I’ve not really had the chance to concentrate on anything else but dubstep, UK funky, and more UK bass… I miss my techno, minimal electronica and obscure IDM, but in 2009 I’ve set up a cafe in the UK’s busiest tourist destination, so concentrating on what I know best in the last 2 years proved fruitful. Mount Kimbie – James Blake – hotflush recordings – hyperdub – boka – black acre – planet mu … they are my fav’sΒ  πŸ™‚ I miss Sandwell District – Ad Noiseam – Abstract Minimal and Noise…
