2009! #5-#1

30 Dec

Finally we’re there!

5 Mr Oizo – Positif

Okay, technically this was last year’s release, but I was a little bit slow on the uptake, so for me, Positif was all about 2009. This lamb is back with Mr Oizo to give us this simply awesome electro anthem. This is right up there with best of Oizo’s stuff like the club classic Flat Beat. Filled with dirty, grimy, heavy bassline electro accompanied by sexy French vocals never fails to make an instant dance floor classic and this track is no exception. Off the Lambs Anger album, this song is a stroke of pure genius, and sounds more and more awesome on each listen. Also, an interesting video clip.

4 Duck Sauce – You’re Nasty

This may be less played than aNYway, but it’s the track that I heard first and like best. New York house legends, A-Trak and Armand Van Helden are awesome individually, so you’d expect them to be awesome  when they come together. Released through A-Trak’s own record label, Fool’s Gold, comes this funky house gem. Not quite as 70s disco sounding as aNYway, but still has the funk factor down pat with a choppy bassline and nice vocals to match.

3 Le Le – Backstage

One of the best new bands of 2009, and this is definitely the most effective and addictive synth basslines. And what’s best about this song, is that not only does this track show off Oizo’s genius production skills, but the vocals are actually hilarious. About a desperate industry wannabe trying to get backstage and hang with the artists, you can’t help but chuckle as you groove. Also an interesting trio, Pepijn Lanen, a Dutch rapper, also writes for Vice magazine and designs. Pieter Janssen is a world renown graphic designer and Rimer Veerman is a member of Comtrom, another electro group.

2 Make The Girl Dance – Baby Baby Baby

This put in a good right for number one. French electro act Make The Girl Dance is turning a lot of heads in the scene, especially with this catchy electro pop/indie number. All in French, it is still easy to guess that this song would have very sexual driven lyrics and it’s worth watching the English version of the video clip to find out just how cheeky they are because they’re quite amusing. Who doesn’t like a quirky, sexy, French track that…makes the girl dance!

1 Little Boots – Stuck On Repeat

Picking a top song was tough this year, as there were a lot of great songs with none really standing out more than the others, but I decided to go for the pop hit! Without a doubt, best new act of the year is UK’s Little Boots, clearly above La Roux even. Listing two of my favourite female singers in history, Kylie Minogue and Deborah Harry as her main inspirations, you can see why she has risen straight to the top. This ultra catchy synth-backed pop song with added elements of disco and funk and a nice layering of beats. Also very stylish and an awesome live performer, it’s great to see a female artist worthy of number one.
