Dialogue Incorporated | Best of 2010

Dialogue Incorporated Radio #22

compiled and mixed by Mister Joshua

Letter from the Editor

So... I feel a little stupid posting up our Best of 2010 mix when it's almost April already. But sometimes this is the price you pay for perfection. Not to say that our latest podcast is perfection, but it's a hell of a lot better than the first one I recorded. A couple swapped tracks and months later and here we are, full swing into 2011. Thankfully the music, being our favorite cuts of the last year, don't really get old. And it covers a lot of ground: bass music, house, indie dance, indie period. Pretty much what I hope you've come to expect from Dialogue Inc. and its musical meanderings.

It's also fortuitously appropriate because it was three years ago this week that we published our first podcast and launched Dialogue Incorporated. So we'll call it a birthday, and call it even.

There were some killer musical moments housed in the 12 months that made up 2010. Most of which we covered ad nauseum in the series of 'Best Of' posts that we actually managed to time with the end of the year. So rather than rehash all of that here—again—we're just going to break down our track selection and link to the posts in case you missed them.

And with that, let the conversation begin!
