Seven of my most loved albums/EP/LPs in 2015.
Spor – Caligo
Released: February 19, 2015
An excellently produced, diverse album that I could not stop listening to. It was released on BitTorrent too. The soundtrack to the first half of my 2015.

Null – Almost
Released: 2 March 2015
This was my favourite find of 2015!
From Melbourne, Australia.
Intelligent electronic with some ’90s techno and house sounds in there.
I also enjoyed this Hardcore/Rave mix by him.
He has one of the best artist websites I’ve seen. A rich multimedia experience where the visuals perfectly complement the music. Felt like I was experiencing the visual half of the EP.

Grimes – Art Angels
Released: November 6, 2015
After listening to the first three tracks I was so excited, I looked for and bought tickets to her March 2016 show in London.
This is masterful pop. Creative genius shit.

Noisia – Incessant EP
Released: April 20, 2015

The EP is excellent, interesting drum & bass.
The samples in the track, “Reptilians” are hilarious.

Ferry Corsten – Hello World EP 2
Released: July 13 2015
A solid trance release that never gets boring thanks to the changing nature of each song.

Skrillex & Diplo – Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü
Released: 27 February 2015
Walking through Leicester Square after work one day I heard, “To Ü (feat. AlunaGeorge)” played on a loud speaker by some male dancers. What is this song? This is great. I Soundhounded it I found that it was by Jack Ü.
This album is a lot of fun. If I was a party person, I’d play this album at my party.
Phace – Shape the Random LP
Released: 16th March 2015
Found this album from a friend’s recommendation. Is there anyone else who sounds similar to Noisia I asked?
This album is incredibly stimulating.
I enjoy listening to this while coding.
