Best of 2011


Here it is, our long awaited end of year feature! Just like the last year, and the year before that, I couldn’t possibly rank my favorite bass-heavy dubstep alongside ambient, modern classical and IDM. So once again, I’m sticking with my own made-up categories. If you find that you like the albums from a particular list, you will surely enjoy the others!

  1. I hope you go on to open our ears this new year too. Last one I’ve discovered here some of the most amazing music. Muchas gracias!!

  2. Thank you so much, I was nearly worried that you weren’t going to do it this year. Learned a lot of cool new albums last from last years charts (not really that much into new releases myself).
