top beats of 2005

i`ve finally decided to tag top10tunes of 2005. yeah, into 4 widely selected top10`s instead of one ultimate tentracker... it seems the best label was unsigned again :D (c`mon soo much brilliant tunes stayed unreleased altough some of them i got in january! does the music industry struggling? okay, joking mode off. dont get me wrong, i spotted max 1 tunes from labels/artist, no matter how much goodies they had altho was quite challenging task. it was veryveryvery hard to choose a few tunes and i`m sure i`d add a lot more (son of the electric ghost, monolake, vex`d, dissident, switch, autechre, four tet, etc... a LOT gems are lurkin out there)
