Take off the blinkers my friend, their contributions to this list are top notch (though, it has to be said, Tiesto's going through a naff phase at the moment).

BenSix said...

Karin, the vocalist on t' Royksopp song, was also in two of one of the best bands of the decade (and made one of the best solo albums).

Phil BC said...

The Knife! I knew I'd forgotten someone - you always get a niggly feeling when you compile a list of this sort. Them bloody skateboards, eugh, and the flying bird/children things ... disturbing.

my eyes are wide open, unfortunately so are my ears!

Ugh, I detest Starry Eyed Surprise. Yes, Oakenfold's no good - Southern Sun was a very rare departure into quality tuneage on his part.

Phil BC said...

Meanwhile, here's a selection of the top trance tunes of 2009. Superb.

Phil BC said...

Arse, forgot this one from 2002. There's always one.

So out of the hundred I know... 4; whoo hoo? Anyway it did remind me to add "Dare" to MP3 wish list. So thanks for that :-)
