Various Artists Soma Compilation 2010
The bad news: No Soma compilation for 2009. The good news: The 2010 comp is coming out considerably sooner—and it's as good as you'd expect from the highly regarded Glaswegian label. The album features standouts from Soma's roster of the past year or so, from artists like Slam (represented here with the spare, light D'Julz remix of "Positive Education" and the richly layered Joris Voorn remix of "Ghost Song") and Silicone Soul (the Ripperton remix of "Dust Ballad II," with its great elastic bassline). 2009 might be gone, but at least some of the year's best releases haven't been forgotten.
