HAJEN: Best of 2009
10. Rubix – Baiser Sur La Disco (Rubix Refix)
Rubix – disco at its best! I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it. It’s a must dance track with a promise of a never ending night at the dance floor. But for God’s sake don’t leave this track for the club nights – use it whenever you need to cheer someone up – at the bus, in school, at work, in supermarket queues. Disco is for living.
9. Duck Sauce – aNYway
This Duck Sauce might not have many similarities with this sweet and sour thing you eat with china food. The mix of A-trak – Armand Van Helden and house/funky disco makes me fall head over heels. And as icing on the cake they have made a marvelous video for aNYway. I say no more.
8. Deadmau5 – Strobe
This track by always genius Deadmau5 doesn’t need an explanation. Listen – and marvel.
7. Amanda Blank – Make It Take It
Amanda Blanks I love you might be one of my most listened albums of 2009. The thousand layers of her deep and smooth voice on simple, but oh so brilliant, bass loop. A perfect clash between electro and hip hop.
6. Fred Falke – Back To Stay
You that read TAjT on a regular basis clearly now what position Fred Falke has got in our, and especially mine. electrified heart. Fred Falke is like the good parts of Midas. Golden like a car ride in winter scenarys, a sunny day by the sea or a smoky, sweaty, slow but energic dance floor at 5 am. Back to stay is the good parts of life.
5. Name The Pet – Get On The Bus
This is one of my favourite dansgolsvältare (translation: tune that overturnes the dancefloor) from this year. I can’t explain why – my words seems unimportant in the company of Get on the bus. Turn up the volume – the intro says it all.
4. Shazam – Hello Cat
A smooth track that reminds me of Jamiroquai in its best days. Very nice tune!
3. Annie – Don’t Stop
After escaping her last record label and getting parts of her album leaked out, one of the most longed for albums finally came. Annie takes electro pop to a new level with Don’t stop. The title track is a catchy and karaoke friendly one – in a fresh way.
2. Jesper Dahlbäck – Super Connector
Last winter I moved to a collective in Solna, north of Stockholm. This track accompanied me on my way to work all spring.
1. Kris Menace feat. Fred Falke – Electricity
I agree with Surikaten on this. It’s indeed hard to choose one track from Kris Menace debut album Idiosyncrasies. But, Electricity it is. Mostly because it manages to remain easy even though it has a massive fateful image. It’s magic!
BONUS: David Guetta feat. KiD CuDi – Memories
A track that both I and Surikaten really like is this track. A genious collab between Guetta and Kid Cudi, between house and r n’ b. A totally genious floor filler that at least we are going to welcome the new year with tonight.
