Apologies...it's a little late....as always, my disclaimer is that this is not a best of 2016 list.... it is a list of what I have collected during 2016 that has made some impression on me.
It's constantly changing.....yes, i bought that much. I noticed a lot of people putting up numerous lists in various categories... sorry to disappoint... you get one list this year..... you also get a playlist that I created for Innov8 Radio below....i suggest you click the link and read on......
A couple of labels who have held my attention this year are Nein Records who have been highly prolific...I just hope they can maintain their originality and hold my attention in 2017........
and Kvitnu....a Ukrainian experimental label who I have developed an obsession with both their sounds and design. I plan to create an experimental mix which ofcourse, will have plenty of Kvitnu and lots more.....keep your ears peeled for this imminent mix......
Engage another organ to ensure you don't miss forthcoming Kin Aesthetic activities in 2017.
I still have loads of Blog posts to complete for Ring-Modulator.com in 2017....some Innov8 radio work to come with any luck and might just get off my arse (depending on work stress levels) and make some music....2017 bring it on.....
