We would like to apologize once again for the delay of our annual report. We have already announced the results for the best websites of the year and best clubs and now it is the turn of the best tracks of the year. The results concerning the best tracks of the year are rather interesting and thats because many of the tracks people mentioned are actually unexpected.
Tracks from different labels and genres shows once again the variety and the extensive strength of contemporary electronic music. An other thing that was clearly stated from this little shituationist research was the fact – a lot of different people, a lot of different choices. I was very confused in the end, what tracks to post here. Therefore I will try to be as much as objective as possible and in the other hand to present ten tracks instead of five. The tracks have not any specific order.
