Headphone Commute’s Best of 2009 : Music For Kicking Your Brain Back Into The Groove

26Dec09

I may not share or write about this type of music all too often, but I’ll admit that I’m in love with stress erasing, head cleaning, heart pounding, minimal beats. Whether it’s the sound of Detroit, Chicago, London or Berlin, I’ll be there dancing away to the four-to-the-floor rhythm of my favorites and notables, such as Joey Beltram, Adam Beyer, Carl Craig, Laurent Garnier, Richie Hawtin, Chris Liebing, Jeff Mills, and of course, Surgeon. Being an electronica child of the 90s you just couldn’t escape this music. And you didn’t want to. Here are this year’s selections to help you kick your brain back into the groove.
