Great thread, and I suspect everyone will have their own wildly different top 10, such is the creative force of the mu. In no particular order;

iTAL tEK - Cyclical

Venetian Snares - Filth

Eero Johannes - s/t

Ceephax Acid Crew - United Acid Emirates

iTAL - Dream On

Last Step - Sleep (and the bonus tracks)

The Gasman - The Grand Electric Palace of Variety

Frog Pocket - Come on primates show your teeth!

Boxcutter - Arecibo Message

U-Ziq - Chewed Corners /xtlp

Loads I've missed off and I could easily do a top 10 singles / ep list. Maybe later

damn, I forgot about my man Barry these last couple of years. I rate Oneiric/Glyphic higher than Arecibo though that was also pretty good.

Ital Tek is probably my favourite artist that Mu has introduced me to.

      vladislav footwork album out now

      Album entirely recorded using archaic recording devices. 
      Any thoughts? 
    • By justanotheruser
      I would like to share with you, beautiful people, my very first album release: "ReconoɔǝЯ".
      The following is an attempt at creating a “palindromic” record, meaning that it can be listened to from both sides: “(..) an attempt to materialize the backs and forths of life (…) It is music without a starting corner, but it takes the idea of a corner and turns it into a circle. The idea of the beginning being repeated at the end and the end at the beginning…”.
      Entirely recorded using archaic recording devices, such as Sony TC250, Fostex X18, Walkmans, among them.
      Hope you guys enjoy it. Love you all ♥

      One half of Lakker and one of my favorite producers, Eomac, is back with his new album (first on Planet Mu).  Preview tracks sound LUSH.
      Don't know if I can wait til Mid April!
