The Best Dance Albums of the 2000s
Mon 8th Nov, 2010 Lists and Guidesin
#35 Moderat – Moderat
When Modeselektor and Apparat decide to make an album together, expectations are going to be high.
#34 Jurassic5 – Power In Numbers
Hip hop’s good-time guys delivered an irresistible summer album with Power In Numbers in 2002. It did great things for their live set-list, too.
#33 Matthew Dear – Asa Breed
Few producers this decade can match Matthew Dear for consistency. Dear’s second album under his own name transcends the techno mould, proving once again he can’t be pinned down.
#32 Apparat – Walls
There’s no questioning the genius of Sascha Ring, a man who gives electronic music a good name. Walls is perhaps his finest hour as Apparat, skewering dreamy pop melodies with his own weird and wonderful flourishes.
#31 Junior Boys – So This Goodbye
Canada’s synth-pop serenaders Junior Boys delivered the perfect morning-after album with So This Is Goodbye. Jeremy Greenspan’s soft and aching croon is something to savour.
