Headphone Commute’s Best of 2009 : Music For Vibrating Your Neighbors’ Dusty China

01Jan10

It’s January 1st, 2010, and my jet-pack isn’t here. There is no smell-a-vision and the intarwebs are still damn slow. Yes, I can carry around over 1300 albums in my pocket, but I still have to worry about a plastic syringe in someone’s pants. It’s January 1st, and my neighbors are still sleeping. It is time to send some low frequency rumbles through the concrete to their beds. If anything was progressively exciting this decade, then it was the evolution of bass music originating in South London. Here is a selection of full length albums that took that sound just a tiny bit further. Happy New Year!

    Totally agree about the evolution of bass music over the last decade! Unbelievable….it seems that I just keep falling more in love with music. Such a deep, essential, and inexpressible aspect of my life. Psychedelic journeys. Low frequency vibration. The bassline grounding me to the moment…to the source from which life springs. Thanks for the time and effort you put into your work. Fantastic list you have here! Thank you again.
