    Our best of 2003 marathon concluded last week with an all-killer / no
    filler program that's now available for your listening enjoyment via
    the FreeFall archives, RadioTake10.org and this Thursday on
    NetMusique.com. If you'd like to peep the entire list of year-end

    To kick off the new year, we've got a special mix set from Heinz
    Tronigger, the man behind Vienna's Sunshine Enterprises label and one
    half of Madrid De Los Austrias. There's also plenty of new music to
    share with you, including:

    NickNack: Improving Silence - Austin DJ/producer/label boss Nick
    Malkiewicz caught my attention with his "Mustard Seed" 12" last year
    and now the full album is finally hitting the streets. Each of the
    twelve tracks have a jazzy, sexy sensibility and make the most of
    arrangements that rely equally on melody and on the space between the
    notes. Nick tosses in some choice beats and scratches when the
    occasion calls for it, but never allows ego to overshadow the song
    structure. If you want to get the new year off to a great start, pick
    up this disc right away.

    V/A: Rewind! 3 - It's my philosophy that one should never attempt to
    cover a classic tune, unless you can bring something new to the
    party. For the third installment of their Rewind! series, Ubiquity
    has done just that by compiling some great reinterpretations by
    artists both on and off their label. Highlights include Louie Vega's
    version of "Jungle Fever," "Please Don't Leave" from Paolo
    Fedrieghini," "Space Is The Place" from Spaceboys and Jeremy Ellis'
    (aka Ayro) version of Herbie Hancock's "Chameleon."

    Karl Moestl: Touching This - You might know Karl Moestl from his
    production work with Walkner.Moestl and his solo debut continues
    along a similar path. Downtempo, dub, jazz, soul and dance all come
    together for a fine album that will take you on any number of
    journeys, without being predictable or tedious.

    Air: Talkie Walkie - Quite possibly their best album to date, the
    French duo enlist production assistance from Nigel Godrich
    (Radiohead) for a shimmering collection of soft, slow melodies that
    practically float above your speakers. Combing acoustic instruments
    with digital gear and hushed vocals makes for a heady, atmospheric
    vibe that's both soothing and engrossing. If you haven't liked
    anything since Moon Safari, you need to check this out.

    Singles-wise, there's kick-ass jazz from Helsinki's Five Corners
    Quintet, along with sure-fire floor-fillers from Dego & Kaidi,
    Patchworks, I-Wolf, Quant, Jetseb & Aos One, Sonoluce, Innocent
    Sorcerers, Gavin Froome, Sweetback and FourTet. So much music, so
    little time......

    I hope you'll join me for the live broadcast, or catch the replay next week.

    Until then - ciao for now,
