As an Audiophile, good music is one thing, but good sonics is just as important. I not only want my music to induce toe-tapping but it should also be well recorded so it can make all the electronics, speakers or headphones that I constantly obsess over shine. Here’s my list of great music from 2018 that probably wasn’t on most peoples radar, but definitely enhanced the enjoyment of carefully matched hi-fi setups I listened to throughout the year.
1. Code Girl / Mary Halvorson
2. Drogas Wave / Lupe Fiasco
3. Geography / Tom Misch
4. Green / Robohands
5. Live At Van Gelder’s / Ben Paterson
6. LOVEPLAYDANCE – 8 Scenes from the Floor / TOSHIO MATSUURA GROUP
7. Streams of Thought, Vol. 1 / Black Thought
8. Streams of Thought, Vol. 2 / Black Thought
9. THE SHAKEDOWN featuring The 22archestra / Tenderlonious
