Outrageously flouting the 'no best of's' rule

 

 

Yeah, what the f***, you can't do that. Nor can you include the likes of Tranceport or Northern Exposure. Those are mix compilations.

 

And any list without Dubnobasswithmyheadman AND Leftism can lick my sweaty balls.

 

I'd have BT's IMA in there as well. And Exit Planet Dust before Dig Your Own Hole.

No issue with having mix compilations within a dance music list.

I would have had the original Sasha/Digweed Renaissance mix ahead of either of the two above purely as it was so defining.

 

Those other albums you mentioned should definitely be in there too

Not LCD's best LP either....the 2 Many DJs one is top, but possibly exempt on YNWA rules.

 

No Dubnobass....indeed

 

Basement Jaxx is a good shout, had forgotten about that

The 4hero DJ Marky inclusion just seems an attempt to get DnB / Jungle covered so they can ignore the really good stuff. Having it there's just an excuse to not consider Black Secret Technology, Timeless or even New Forms.

Very very narrow range of electronic dance music that first list. Pretty much all major releases.

 

Dance is such a massive field it is almost impossible to compare across different genres, but I would say that most of the best party experiences I've ever had would feature basically nothing off that list ('cept maybe Kraftwerk or perhaps Aphex Twin)

I don't think that list is based on merit, it's ordered by release date.

Yes, but it's a list of 'great' electronic records and another by Air is better than the one they've chosen.

 

Was premier symptomes out first?

 

It's a pretty rubbish list

Yes, Moon Safari was 98. Premier wasn't strictly an album, though...

I just think an album of original material is different to a mix. Different art forms. IMO.

 

The 4hero DJ Marky inclusion just seems an attempt to get DnB / Jungle covered so they can ignore the really good stuff. Having it there's just an excuse to not consider Black Secret Technology, Timeless or even New Forms.

 

Timeless is a great shout. Logical Progression if we are doing compilations.

 

Deadmaus is a c*** and Dubnobass and Leftfield are massively over-rated s****.

 

You sir, with the exception of the first bit, are talking b******s!

I dont think you can separate it within dance music as djs and dj mixes are so integral to showcasing music

Nah leftism is one of, if not the most, overrated electronic music album I've heard, it's distictly ordinary.

 

Oh and if we were having compilations or albums hewn together from singles and b sides I'd have 28 Gun Bad Boy which probably has a claim to be the first Jungle album.
