Notes:
Some of my chart reflects tracks I’ve been DJing out at events this year having been received over the last year or so.
If they were ‘new-to-me’ tracks they are still included as they have made an impact on me this year. Other tracks are tracks I’ve received, liked & promoted. The order in which the tracks are listed are not necessarily an order of preference.
2013 people of note who also must be mentioned:
2 great books which came out this year:
“Masters Of The Airwaves – a History of British Black Music Radio.” – Lindsey Wesker & Dave VJ
“Sounds Like London: 100 Years of Black Music In The Capitol” – Lloyd Bradley.
& also music recently arrived this year:
Lifford “Came From”, Bluey “Leap Of Faith”, Ray Hayden “Things Will Get Better” & Martine Girault – Opaz Recordings,
Personal Life & Tokyo Dawn various remixes, Jazz Bailey “My Heart”, Raheem DeVaughn “A Place Called Loveland”, Cleveland P. Jones, & SoulPersona for over all output of remixes and original music

Those we lost in 2013 duly remembered:  Donald Byrd, Don Blackman, George Duke, Stan Tracey, Felix Dexter, Nelson Mandela, Oliver Cheatham,  Chico Hamilton, Bobby Bland, Lou Reed, Junior Murvin, Richard Bryers, Bobby Parker  – RIP.
