Repetition and distortion. I love experimentation on how far you can push a simple repetitive beat while figuring out how to not make it boring. Jon is great at that.
All You're Waiting for
Sometimes I need that pop house funk, and Classixx always delivers.
The North Borders
Bonobo’s housiest record, I believe. I’m actually not that much into his previous efforts. They are brilliant, but this one definitely got me hooked. I can’t stop listening to it.
The best track Chris has pulled off, I think. Who needs percussion if you have intense synthesizers? I love imagining a post apocalyptic wasteland of automated cars rushing at you, and this is its soundtrack.
DJ Koze feat. Milosh
I love DJ Koze’s progression as an artist. First he made german comedy rap, then he became a joke house artist, and now he’s mostly known for sublime and beautiful minimal house. And nobody knows his name is a joke on the german word for "puke" anymore.
I only recently discovered Dorian Concept, and almost regret not having found his music earlier. His work is often experimental, but always in a catchy way. Often times he doesn't even need percussion to get you dancing. Great stuff.

Travis is my hero. He ALWAYS delivers. Every time he releases a record, there is one song that I just obsess over for months. This is one of em.
LFO is a legend and I will probably listen to his stuff for the rest of my life.
I mean, c’mon, it’s Aphex Twin.
