Top Albums of the 2010

Here's a few lists of top 10 records of the year from a few music geeks that I know or that I DJ around with on occasion. All the lists are really good and if you're looking for a list with a non bias slant (meaning none of us are paid off by sponsorship or by labels), its a good place to look for records you might have missed out on this year. 

Dan Snider (Resident DJ out in St. Augustine and Jacksonville) 

In no particular order

Earl Sweatshirt - Self Titled
Curren$y - Pilot Talk 2
Erykah Badu - New Amerykah Pt. 2 (Return of the Ankh)
Shit Robot - From the Cradle to the Rave
Matthew Dear - Black City
Mount Kimbie - Crooks and Lovers
James Blake - CMYK EP
The Dream - Love King
Onra - Long Distance
Floating Points - Vacuum EP
Actress - Splazsh

My main man Larry G.out in San Francisco (Minimal, Tech and House DJ)

Bonobo - Black Sands (highly recommended, classy and well put together)
Deerhunter - Halcyon Digest (space rock...period)
Todd Terje - Remaster of the Universe (poppy coolness)
Prins Thomas - Prins Thomas (The sound of Robert Johnson and German space age disco)
Four Tet - There is Love in You
V/A -Pop Ambient (like furry little kittens softly massaging my balls)
Thomas Fehlman - Gute Lift (old dude knows what is up)
Martin Buttrich - Crash Test (just a great album for dancing the 4/4)
Michael Mayer - Immer 3 (nice addition to the series)
Actress - Splazsh
Patrick Pulsinger - Impassive Skies (very interesting stuff...also appears on Immer 3)
John Roberts - Glass Eights (surprise from nowhere. nice stuff)
