Dusk + Blackdown at FWD + end of year chart

SMS transcript:

Rinse HQ: "Would you two like to play FWD>> on the 6th?"
Blackdown "Fuckyes!"

Dusk + I will be playing at FWD>> again on Jan 6th, doing the early slot for 90 mins and we're really excited because, well, you never know if or when the call will come. The rough plan currently is to play only unreleased Keysound beats, because truth be told there's more individual tracks due on Keysound in 2011 than there was released in 2005-2010. That includes the stuff Dusk + I have been working on for the last two years that we haven't played on radio yet. So come down early if you're curious.

Top 11 + 13 of 2010

After my end of year column a few people asked for my personal top 10, but I could only settle on 11, which Boomkat kindly hosted.

Such a year for music.
That lower the tempo, up the groove idea really caught on, eh?

All the best with KS in the new year.
