2009 Record of the year 3: Heroes of the year

3. 8Bitch

Maybe a surprise choice but I'd like to think it's just a bit of an upfront exclusive and this time next year everyone will be raving about her. Anyway, no-one else has so many tracks (19!) in my 'most played' list this year so she must be doing something right.

For anyone deaf or daft enough to have missed her this year her music ranges from techno, r'n'b, to dubstep and dirty old crunk. Oh yeah and throw in that she's not just a great producer, but that she can more than hold her own on the mic too. And be an international dj superstar. And although I'm generally on safer grounds talking about her music, she's also involved in fashion, acting and some sort of Dj computer game which I don't even want to bother asking about.  However I think her greatest achievement of the year was that she made La Roux sound less shit.

After months of constant pestering and annoying her with "when are you getting released?" "when are you getting released?", the big news came through last week that the new year will finally see the release of her first records. News as to whether or not it'll be a tropical picture disc is as yet unconfirmed.
