On and off, for the past several years, I've been dumping copies of tracks I like into folders assigned to each month. The objective is to take my favorite ten tracks from a given month (though it's impossible to be rigidly strict about release dates) and arrange them in a way that makes them listenable on my player. I tend to fall behind, but recently I was able to wrap up December '05-March '06. This is how I trick myself into thinking I'm on top of things. (Yes, these playlists are different from the informal charts that have been literally thrown up.)

April Chart

Ada - Sternhagel (Combination)
Antonelli - Surrender (Kalk Pets)
Booka Shade - Mandarine Girl [Konrad Troy Hearthrob Remix] (Get Physical)
Duoteque - Amarcord (Boxer)
Minilogue - The Girl from Botany Bay (Wir)
Roger 23 - Ain't No Dirty Games (Playhouse)
SCSI-9 - Transsibirski Express (Neuton)
Sleeparchive - Bleep 03 (Sleeparchive)
2 AM/FM - Acid Planes (Spectral Sound)

...and the mystery bonus track at the end of the first disc of Idol Tryouts Two (Ghostly). If I were to say who's responsible for it, there would be a chance (however slim) that I'd wake up tomorrow with the head of Terry Farley in my bed. So I'll play it safe.

If there's a #1, it's the Lawrence-on-Perlon Antonelli track.
