Grabbed the Blu & Exile release you were talking about, sounds pretty good. To be honest I haven't downloaded a lot of hip-hop this year, any other suggestions?
ELmatic by Elzhi.
Oh yeah, I'm familiar with him. Didn't know he had a new release out, thanks.
Also got the LiveLoveA$AP which was pretty cool but to be honest I liked beats more than I liked A$AP himself.JUMPING FROM A RELEASE TO ANOTHER WITH SEEMINGLY NO CONNECTION, JUST CLICK THE LINKS IF YOU FEEL LIKE LISTENING TO SOMETHING ELECTRONIC THAT ISNT BROSTEP

This was exactly my kind of release, just except for the last few tracks.
One producer that I found from this mix was Kölsch who aroused my curiosity with this fresh track:
Kölsch - Opahttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52L8IEpWeag
&ME is a producer I stumbled upon purely just going from some video to a recommended video to a recommended video. That loop has sucked me in for hours on several occasions.
&ME - Purple Rainhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdOR-8O3YoY
One of the most pleasantly surprising recent releases for me is Bart B More & TAI - Nobody Canna Cross It (Di Bus Can Swim). Just judging the release by the facts that it involves Bart B More, one of the most over-rated producers in his field (imo) and weird and Diplo-like title, is pretty much wrong. In my opinion TAI is one of the most talented under-the-radar producers who pops out a tune or two in a year but they are really spectacular. This collaboration is no exception. It's just something about this guy's work that makes me feel happy, and not the happy-hardcore kind of happy, but the "holy shit this is awesome" kind of happy.

One of my favorite electronic tracks of the year would be DIM & TAI - Glass, also involving TAI and unexpectedly huge drop. Hearing this track for the first time made me so glad.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YpzEztSD4c
Also found this next release via random recommended videos, probably because of the attracting cover. The Mould - Karma EP shows definite links to fellow Russian producer Proxy, but also slamming something new to the table. Tracks are pretty simple but banging in their own way, not exactly melodical masterpieces but bassy monsters without going ridiculous.

Here's Proxy for comparison as I mentioned him too.
Proxy - Dancing In The Darkhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26-SmPa2hVk
Also someone mentioned Huoratron in a conversation regarding similar artists to The Mould so I might aswell throw him in here too. Really I was just asking for an excuse to show off imo the best Finnish producer's work. Too bad Finland is so retarded regarding electronic music that he has to tour mostly somewhere else.

And no, your subwoofer isn't broken.
All this talk about Boys Noize stuff and gem-of-a-producers (I just made that term up, don't hate) made me remember I kinda was supposed to make a best of 2011 list.
