Industrial Drum'n'Bass

Without question, the best dark drum'n'bass album of all time. Absolutely nobody else at the time was making breakbeats this sharp and deadly or basslines this bleak and disturbing. The slow/fast trickery of "I'm Loosing U" is still sneaky enough to catch anyone off guard. Unfortunately he's never been able to recapture the fury of his '90s work, but this album will survive the apocalypse.

Adult Alternative Pop/Rock

Between a taster EP and new album set for the fall, it's time to revisit the pure pleasure of KT's 2004 UK breakthrough debut. Sweet, yearning, and simple, it features her biggest hits ("Suddenly I See" & "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree") alongside some pastoral gems ("Under The Weather," "Silent Sea," "Universe & U," "Other Side Of The World"). Her masterful songwriting, gorgeous voice, and optimistic attitude carry this collection, perfect for a warm summer night.
