Best of 2006


It's been long over due, however, here is my "Best of 2006 12-inch Releases" and "Top 10 Album Releases of 2006". Some of these releases you might agree with, and some of them you probably won't, and that's fine, I guess that's why these "End-of-Year" lists are purely opinion based. Alot of these releases were recently discussed in previous blogs, so there's no need to go over every single one, however I did add a few downloads to help guide you along. Overall, I think it's been a good year for music in which we saw many artists including Booka Shade, Lindstrøm, Hot Chip, 2020 Soundsystem, and Martin Buttrich drop multiple solid releases, while Delia Gonzalez & Gavin Russom, Reverso 68, and Force of Nature treated us "dance music enthusiasts" to some great new music. Definately a year to remember. So that being said, here is American Athlete's "2006-Best of..." :
