In 2009, I shifted my attention a bit towards the establishment of my Hip Hop label Error Broadcast. We had three wonderful artist releases (don’t miss AEED, the ABC beat tape and Shlohmo) and have been working a lot in the background – 2010 will see our first vinyl releases which we are going to sell digitally as well. Put down AEED, B-Ju and Comfort Fit for the watchlist. Accordingly, I’ve been listening to a ridiculous amount of free beat music. Some of these I’d like to share with you. See my top five albums and songs please.

12rec. is doing slow but well nevertheless. We saw Bernier & Trottier and Nic Bommarito return with wonderful releases. Plus, as an early highlight, Klotzsch & Krey blessed us with their version of sophisticated environmental music. These days we are publishing the new Crepusculum album, and 2010 will see new music by Giraffe and Milhaven. All you need, no?
