This is the annual review of Uncanny Valley, shtum and Rat Life. How quickly time flies can be felt especially at the end of a year when all we have is dust and memories and everything else passes by. But the music remains!

Uncanny Valley and its two satellites released 13 records this year. Panthera Krause in January with music to freak out. Serial Error squeezed the acid out of their modular system in the same month. In February, Amrint Keen aka Lake People served electro infused dance tracks. Iron Curtis brought many emotional moments in March. In April, long forgotten acid treasures from Planet Underground surfaced and Credit 00 brought modern work songs for a post-industrial society. In May, Cuthead helped to discover your body’s potentials. Chino released a wave influenced, gear-heavy techno and electro record. After the hottest summer of the century there were tracks by Herzel which blurred the line between rave and darkness. Leif Müller was there with a record which is designed for big room pleasures. Mr. Incognito composed next level funk at various tempi for Rat Life. The conclusion of this selection are Qnete with bleeping techno anthems and ½ GOTT with the soundtrack for a sunrise over an industrial area.
