2010 : Heroes of the year Number 12

Just checking my list now and I had to double check I hadn't made a mistake somewhere as Ninja Tune have only come in at number 12! I think it just goes to show how strong the rest of the list coming up is.

Dropping three of the albums of the year in Roots Manuva vs Wrongtom, Bonobo and Andreya Triana was more than enough but then the 20th anniversary celebrations took them to another level. The exclusives and the rarities and the classics - and that was just the stuff they put online building up to it, then came the mammoth boxset. I am seriously still finding gems in there, it really is the gift the keeps giving. Even if it is now impossible to buy and second hand ones are already fetching big bucks, if you do ever see it - get it regardless of price as owning one will honestly bring hours, days, weeks, months, I'm expecting years of enjoyment and surprise.

Roots Manuva - Witness (1 Hope) (Slugabed Remix) 
Andreya Triana - A Town Called Obsolete (Mount Kimbie Remix) 
Floating Points - Post Suite 
Floating Points Ensemble - Almost In Profile 
Antipop Consortium - Volcano (Four Tet Remix) 
The Cinematic Orchestra - Familiar Ground (Solid Steel Version) 
Coldcut - Not Paid Enough (DJ Kentaro Turntable Mix)
