2009! #15-#11

15 Tony Roballo – When I Call You

This Brasillian DJ is still fairly unknown and I’m waiting for him to burst into the scene. When I Call You sounds just like an electro-house track straight out of the New York underground with a slight hint of Latino in the vocals. I’ve heard a small amount of his stuff, but all of it is high quality electro-house with really funky vocals and beats over the top that make you want to dance instantly. It would just be nice if his stuff was a little easier to find…but definitely worth the hunt.

14 Phoenix – 1901

Of course this French four piece had us all hooked back in 2006 with Long Distance Call from their second album It’s Never Been Like That, but it hasn’t been until this year that they’ve really made the big time, and when I say big time, I mean huge time. The success Phoenix have experienced all over the world in the past year has been mind-blowing and much delayed. Their cool style of pop-rock seems effortless, smoothed over with backing synth and catchy vocals. 1901 is another contender for summer/festival anthem of the year. Easy to listen to and impossible to hate, it will have everyone in a good mood.

13 La Roux – Bulletproof

I have to admit, this song dropped a several places in the countdown the day the UK duo dropped out of their set at Adelaide Parklife, filling the festival with a strong sense of hatred. But it’s still extremely difficult to stay mad at such a catchy, happy, synth-fuelled song. La Roux have burst onto the scene this year with a range of addictive synth-focused songs accompanied by the soft vocals of the fiery redhead, but Bulletproof stands out as the best by far. The video clip is also well worth a viewing in its cool geometric element.

12 Fagget Fairys – Feed The Horse

This Danish lesbian duo know how to make good music. They are somewhere between ghetto funk and electro pop. With dirty, sex driven vocals and catchy electro basslines to back, Feed The Horse is nice little number for the dance floor and very open to remix abuse. I personally recommend the Gambit edit. This song isn’t as ghetto as their other tracks, a bit more electronicy, enough said, now just listen.

11 Zoot Woman – Live In My Head

With their second entry in the countdown I can’t get enough of these guys. They have a seriously cool and addictive sound and the album Things Aren’t What They Used To Be is full with it, making it well worth the five year wait. This song is particularly passionate, bordering synthpop and rock. Choosing which of their songs to put in the top 50 for 2009 was really difficult because they’re all amazing and I didn’t want to put in anymore than two, but this one is a standout, so make sure you take the time to listen if you haven’t already.

The Faggot Fairys is an amazing dirty, grimey electro duo from Denmark, comprised of the lesbian couple; Ena (Elena Carli)- former model who met DJ Sensimilla (Camilla Hjort) in Copenhagen nightclub, Vega. The meeting lead to Ena needing 15 stitches after stage diving onto a broken bottle in attempt to impress Sensimilla….but also lead to the beginning of the Fagget Fairys.

They’re sexy, bassey and dirty Feed The Horse, produced in NYC with Grammy-Award winning Rasmus Billie Bahncke and it will leave you druelling for more…luckily they have a full album out with Music For Dreams now, full of luscious, sexy vocals with 4a.m. written all over them!
