Here’s the tracklisting with a few comments on each.
1. “Laugh Track” by Gosub
— I first heard this track on a random music blog… liked it so much i bought the album… It represents all the positive happenings of the whole year for me.
2. “Last Chance On The Stairway” by Duran Duran
— Duran Duran played this obscure song from the “Rio” album live as part of their latest tour, The Red Carpet Massacre. It was a part of the “Electro” Set – amazing!
3. “Flashing Lights” by Kanye West (featuring Dwele)
— My favorite track from one of my favorite albums of the year.
4. “I Am The Black Gold Of The Sun” by Minnie Riperton
— One of the “throw-back” songs on the compilation and one of my favorite songs of all time…
5. “She’s Magma” by Rontronik
— Taken from my first ever solo release…
6. “Earth Orbit One: Little Fluffy Clouds” by The Orb
— Another of the “oldie-but-goodies” chosen for this compilation.
7. “15 Step” by Radiohead
— A song that comes from an album represents the changing times in the music industry and stands as a flag-ship of sorts, of what is to come.
8. “Enrico” by Isolee
9. “Banstyle/Sappys Curry” by Underworld
— This is music for creative-types, especially since the group was a spin-off of the design team, Tomato.
10. “Scratch Your Name” by The Noisettes
— The chorus goes “Scratch your name into the fabric of this world before you go..” ‘Nuff said.
11. “Gatekeeper” by Feist
— This blending of genres is out of sight, here…
12. “It’s Your Touch (Ashley Beadle’s Heavy Disco Edit)” by Black Ghosts
— Probably one of the best dance tracks out right now… Love-filled, fun , yet, NOT cheese-ball.
13. “Stop Me” by Mark Ronson (featuring Daniel Merriweather)
— One of my favorite Smiths songs covered fantastically…
14. “Rolling Down The Hills” by Glass Candy
— Lay back. Chill…
15. “The Answer Is Yes (12 inch Version)” by Justus Kohncke
— The title of the song says it all…
