Furtive 50 2022

Yes, it’s our annual what’s good in music jamboree. You know the drill by now, but in case you don’t, we need your favourite three tracks (in order of preference) and your fave album.

Tracks need to be released in 2022 (though we tend to be a bit lenient if it came out late last year). No edits, no reissues, just new music. GO!

(PS If you’ve already added your top three on another platform already, then don’t both replying to this.)

so much good stuff this year, but i say that every year. and increasingly year after year, i find that the tracks i choose are basically album tracks - i’m not actively DJing so much so i’m not on the hunt for remixes or edits or what have ya. so we’ll go with rad tracks on rad albums, and a rad album. or three.

  1. ron trent “cycle of many”
  2. the zenmenn & john moods “out of my mind”
  3. the greg foat group “sinister undertones”

album: other lands “archipelagos”
re-issue: electribe 101 “electribal soul”
compilation: “valley of the sun: field guide to inner harmony”

I turned off email notifications on Bandcamp for Hell Yeah as I was getting bombarded, which is why it went under the radar :dotted_line_face:

That Zenmen/John Moods track is a real beauty isn’t it!

James Righton - Empty Rooms
I Met a Mountain - Voices of Creation
Nia Archives - Forbidden Feelings (not as good as some of her tracks last year but still nice)

Album. Nu Genea - Bar Mediterraneo
