I know i said i couldn't be bothered with a best of 07 list but here are a few things that made my year:
1. Umbrella - i never listen to radio one so when i heard this out for the first time it sounded fresh like oj!
2. B-line getting some much needed exposure and grime heads starting to spit over b-line beats.
3. Reading festival Patrick Wolf, Battles, Foals, Shy Child and Dj Shitmat specifically.
4. Laura Groves getting a single released.
5. Seeing Wolf Eyes and Vibra Cathedral Orchestra at the Baltic in Newcastle
6. The Cumberland Arms
7. Toddla T making dancehall sound like b-line and smiling through his dj sets!
8. Meeting Howard Wilkinson in Broomhill.
9/10. Shy Child -'Summer' it gets two numbers because it was that summery! Here's a video of their live performance at the Old Blue Last, minter:
