  1. I have not heard most of these, but I really enjoy Clem Leek and what I have heard of Ólafur Arnalds.

  2. A very nice list indeed! The opening track on Clem Leek’s album (“Mystery Moor”) is an absolute masterpiece IMHO.

  3. I agree with your choices (I have 5 out the first 10). I particularly like Max Richter’s Infra and Clem Leek’s Holly Lane.
    Have a great 2011!
