Carl Cox - Electronic Generations
60
I like the raw energy Carl brings on this lengthy techno LP. Detroit techno experiments, and electronic twists like Deep Space X keep things interesting. However, it has an improvised sound to it so the songs sometimes fade into the background or end at the very moment you start enjoying them.
Tove Lo - Dirt Femme
80
Tove Lo has one of the most addictive pop voices. A true artist who can convincingly emote, and grab hold of a melody with grit and technique. She also makes pop music sound cool and vulnerability sound genuine. Dirt Femme is mostly a stellar pop project that goes beyond the crisp production and bangers.
Grum - Unreality
60
This has a more punchy, synthwave sound than what you'd expect from the generally predictable progressive house genre. Faded Memory and the 2 closing tracks are great, but that's about it. Too many forgettable tracks with anticlimatic progressions. I can imagine it sounding better in a live setting though.
Fred Again.. - Actual Life 3 (January 1 - September 9 2022)
50
The voice note concept becomes tiresome fast. The annoying girl going "oh my god", "holy shit" throughout. Hooks recycled in different songs. Bland downtempos. Fred's brought a new depth to mainstream dance music and the singles sound great individually, but as an album this does not work.
Mall Grab - What I Breathe
85
Well worth the long wait. This assured debut by Mall Grab dips in and out of his love for house, jungle, rave and grime. Yet it never sounds messy, held together through a consistent vibe, varied bass and an enjoyable pace. Simply put, it's what lovers of outsider house and alternative electronic music breathe.

Hello, I'm just asking all of my followers if they want to join the CCTV notification squad. By joining, I'll send you a link to my newest review when it comes out. Because I highly doubt you can find my new stuff when you follow 580 people. Also links to new lists, and stuff! If that sounds cool, just say something along the lines of "that sounds epic and based, I'm in!" If not, you can ignore

Hello, I am making a community list and if you're interested in contributing I would appreciate your input. I have been interested to execute this research for a while so I hope to get as many responses as possible. You just have to answer a simple question: Do you use light mode or dark mode on the AOTY site? You can also give an explanation on why you use either one. Thanks a lot if you decide to answer!
