As most electronica-headz know by now, Warp Records (famous website navigation pictured above) are asking for your favourite top ten tracks to go towards a bespoke album release later this year.
You can keep abreast of the voting further down this page on the right. No, a bit further down. No, the other right, yes, you got it.
Here is a list of my personal choices, which tragically exclude the likes of Leila Arab, Req and Richard H Kirk, whose albums I rate but I couldn't pinpoint individual "choons".
There is a slight failing in my top ten Warp list. There aren't ten, and not all of it was released on Warp. So it's as useful as fibreglass facewash.
What tracks would you choose? Why not leave a comment below? Comments cost £1.50 a minute, mobiles may vary, and not all comments will be read but you may still be charged.
- Aphex Twin - Ageispolis (I think I actually made love to my speakers the first time I heard the supersonic bass)
- Autechre - Arch Carrier (it's criminal to boil Ae down to single tracks, but this one has the nod)
- Battles - Ddiamondd (just sums up Battles' intensity and obstinate refusal to make any sense whatsoever)
- Boards Of Canada - In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country (just plain spooky)
- Clark - Ted (one of several Clark tracks I could pick, but I chose this for the sheer head-noddingness)
- Higher Intelligence Agency - Ketamine Entity (one of the first electronica tracks I was obsessed with)
- Hudson Mohawke - ZooO00oO0m (I still get excited about all those little Os)
- Jamie Lidell - A Little Bit More (Luke Vibert remix) (give a soul singer a laptop and you get this)
- LFO - LFO (at last, a techno track with easy-to-remember lyrics!)
- Link - Arcadian (an absolute all-time stonking ambient dub classic of the highest order)
- Luke Vibert - I Love Acid (yes, it's a crowd pleaser, but it's Vibert at his most Viberty)
- Nightmares On Wax - Les Nuits (commercial trip hop that I'm inexplicably fond of)
- Plaid - Get What You Gave (steel band electronica - nuff said)
- Polygon Window - If It Really Is Me (released in 1826 or something, this is epic Aphex Twin)
- Rustie - ZigZag (I could have chosen a few Rustie tracks, but this one hit me between the eyeballs)
- Sabres Of Paradise - Theme (I bought this purely because of the graffiti-style cover artwork)
- Squarepusher - Red Hot Car (the only singalonga-Squarepusher track until 2008's A Real Woman)
