Issue 130: XLR8R's Favorites of 2009

While we where pretty burnt on definitive best-of lists, we couldn't resist crowning Bristol cover star Joker the 2009 king of bass music. On top of that, in this year-end issue we survey a host of our favorite artists of 2009, including Martyn, Hudson Mohawke, The Field, Holy Ghost!, Nite Jewel, Schlachthofbronx, DJ Koze and tons more. As well, we look at the year's best technology and videogames, just in time for the holidays. View online at Issuu.
